The Big Comfy Bookshop
Coventry, United Kingdom
The Big Comfy Bookshop proudly presents the award winning acoustic evening 'Comfy & Acoustic'.
Intimate performances from the best UK (and beyond) musicians covering folk, Americana, singer-songwriters and roots.

Gitta de Ridder
Anglo-Dutch singer and songwriter Gitta de Ridder sings things as they are. The simplicity of her song-writing leaving the space for her heart-filled vocals to purvey the words in their purest form. Inspired by modern folk artists such as Anais Mitchell and Iron & Wine she has been playing and releasing her songs since late 2014 which led to appearances on Dutch national TV and Radio and support from BBC introducing and several local stations in the UK. An engaging lady who has the ability to mesmerise and draw an audience into the magical world of her songs. A world full of feeling, warmth, kindness, honesty, joy and sadness. Her folk­pop songs with beautifully poetic but also conversational lyrics go straight to the heart and are performed on a bed of warm finger-­picked guitar topped by a voice full of character and emotion.

Ferris & Sylvester
Ferris & Sylvester are a London based duo made up of Issy Ferris and Archie Sylvester. The two met as solo musicians, battling through the carnage that is London's vibrant music scene and started writing together. In early 2016, Ferris & Sylvester's thoughtfully crafted song writing caught the ear of legendary producer Youth (Paul McCartney/The Verve/ Crowded House). The pair recorded their first record 'The Yellow Line EP' with Youth in his Space Mountain Studios, Spain. With clear references in their catchy folk setup to the mid-60s sounds of NYC's Greenwich Village such as Bob Dylan and Simon & Garfunkel, the duo also sit firmly amongst contemporaries like Laura Marling and Ray Lamontagne. Their clever combination of Archie's blues influence and Issy's soft folk tone has created a distinctive genre of their own

Laura Frances
Laura Frances is a new and haunting voice, calling to mind artists such as Hope Sandoval and the classic Mazzy Star.

A dark, baritone Joni Mitchell baring herself in her songs with a refreshing depth and brevity. She conjures mystical images in the vein of Leonard Cohen and delivers them under misty melodies from a world where everything is ethereal and half hidden.

Stage Times
Gitta de Ridder 9.45-10.30
Ferris & Sylvester 8.50-9.30
Laura Frances 8.00-8.35
