The Stride- Piano-fuelled Bristol 5-piece taking you on a musical journey from soulful reflection to foot stomping grooves, presented by the gloriously rich tones of miss Sophie G


DUB THE EARTH have shaken festivals, parties, raves, clubs, squats & protest/benefit gigs with their massive bass lines & pumping acid-dub fueled rhythms.

Originally formed in the Hungerford area alongside & with members of dub/punk pioneers RDF, Revolutionary Dub Warriors & Jah Works.


Mae & The Midnight Fairground boast a collection of vibrant circus-esque songs that tell vivid stories of wayward characters both human and animal. Collective brainchild of Mae Karthauser, song and music is coupled with a distinctive twist of humour and eccentrically woven anecdotes (on topics as wide as resident ladybirds, the violent homeless, and literature for 8-10 year olds).


Harry Sankey - The Fiery and smart jazz and swing guitarist.

The Temporary Trio came together accidentally. Su started off as the founder of the trio with a bundle of tunes from various sessions and recordings. She introduced Old TIme music and the playing style to Tony on guitar and Keith being very keen, joined them later with harmonicas and other interesting noises! Together they performed three or four tunes at a time at open mic nights.


Jack Bird- County music with a twist, Dark and Bluesy Americana, described as “earthy” and “honest” with a set “full of whiskey aching songs”


The Roving Crows- Formed in early 2009 The Crows inexhaustible energy gives them stand alone status in the up-surging live music scene; boasting fiery fiddle playing, trumpet, guitar, drums, bass and vocals.

Described as completely unique and uncontainable, an original Celtic vibe, also drawing influences from genres including jazz, ska, folk, kleizmer and blues. An unbridled festival sound, Crow 'n' Roll.


Christian Walsh- A blues and roots music lover, Christian has spent 2012 playing across the south west including Glastonbury and the Big Chill festivals as well as a cheeky trip to the O2 arena for the Empire Film Festival. Playing lap slide, and bottleneck and acoustic guitars keeps the evening varied and fun!

Hawthorn finds her strengths in folk song and electronic looping,

blended together with a touch of the sacred medieval and today's

technology. She is a one woman band, who uses a loop station to layer

vocal melodies into a wall of sound. Taking stories from mythology,

fairy tales and video games, she tells them to music.
