Pepper & Shepherd at Deepdale Backpackers & Camping
Music - Bands, Thu 27 Apr 2017, £5
One of the finest acoustic music duos in the UK, launching their new album.
James Pepper and Anthony Shepherd create home-made, homespun folk and roots music drawing on influences such as John Martyn, Tom Petty and Chris Thile. Performing with a verve and passion that has made them one of the most electrifying acts on the UK folk scene, they have released two albums and two EPs.
Their combination of driving guitar rhythms, intricate hickory-smoke tinged mandolin virtuosity and soaring vocal harmonies make Pepper and Shepherd a firm favourite on the folk and roots scene.
... it’s the kind of music that gives you goosebumps ...

Most of the A149 coast road is ok to cycle and there are lots of quiet country lanes inland. From the East (Burnham Market direction), the easiest route is over Whiteway Road. From the West (Docking & King's Lynn direction), the easiest route is down Dalegate Lane. National Cycle Route No1 passes a couple of miles inland. Remember you can hire bikes from Deepdale Bike Hire.
Naturally we'd encourage you to visit by bus, walking or cycling, but car drivers are very welcome too. We offer free car parking and next door at Dalegate Market is one of the few fuel stations (petrol and diesel) along the coast. We're approximately half way between Hunstanton and Wells-next-the-Sea on A149 coast road.
