Music comes from

Mush (Alt folk songwriters Nikki & Sarah & their friends start the afternoon off with their lovely sunny & sad music- & it all evolves around Nikki's amazing voice )

Songwriters Circle with Tom Blackwell (Tom's work is influenced by country, soul, blues, gospel & American folk music. Wonderful, Heartfelt Music" - Bob Harris, "A talent as big as the sky" R2 magazine) Gem Andrews (Berlin based- Gem crafts beautiful original songs that cut to the quick and speak to the heart. Her work is firmly rooted in alt & trad country with influences from Kitty Wells to K.D Lang) Tony Bengtsson (North East-based Americana/Country Folk artist Tony Bengtsson's hook-laden songs are 'remarkable to say the least' (Maverick Magazine) and his voice has been described as 'the best for country outside of America)

Skylark Song (Alex & Emma McRae) grew out of a mutual love of warm melodies, close harmonies and the odd natural lyrical reference. The Crack Magazine describing them as Utterly gorgeous and the kind of folk music that feels like it's been constructed from hedgerows and wild flowers.

Sour Mash Trio
If you like hot authentic country / rockabilly / roots music played to perfection with the added bonus of them being all their own songs, then this little trio will make you happy. The music usually does anyway!

Kentucky Cowtippers
Bluegrass troupe, The Kentucky Cow Tippers have deservedly earned a reputation as one of the hardest working and most exciting new acts on the UK's acoustic/roots music scene. Geordies - Sam (banjo), Rupert (guitar) and Evan (mandolin) plus American fiddler Niles + Double Bass, have a deep appreciation of every aspect of the genre


Mary Jean Lewis & Her Lowmen (A very classy live performer with a dynamic personality, Louisiana born & bred Mary Jean Lewis - niece of Jerry Lee Lewis brings her retro Rock N Roll -country/western swing outfit up north again after trips to JHot Club & to Summertyne Fest)

The Honeycutters (Their music has been described as Appalachian honky tonk, and being based out of hip and happening Asheville, North Carolina, that's about as close as it can get to presenting them a handy style tag. Perhaps the band's most potent force is, singer and song-writer Amanda Anne Platt, who has been rightly compared to some of the great female performers of the post-war years )
