Grey Hairea

 

Snazzback

After playing together for the first time on corn street (Bristol) in September, Snazzback have been busking the cold-stretch, bringing the streets an echo of something else. Their songs play with undulating jazz/ improvisation, shimmering afro-cuban rhythms and deep soul/funk grooves. Having hosted several impromptu street-parties last summer in Bristol, the 5-piece street-jazzers are now jumping between street and stage, bringing their cold new grooves off piste!

Beccy Farr


Born in South Wales, Beccy Farr spent her childhood playing piano and aspiring to be a songwriter. In 2008, she moved to Bristol and was drawn into the music scene around her, giving her the push she needed to perform her own songs. Her debut album ‘Impact of a Whisper' was released in 2013 and her follow up EP ‘Burdens' was written in 2015 but not released until early 2017. Her songs are melodic and her lyrics are honest.


 

Fly Yeti Fly

Fly Yeti Fly are acoustic duo Lorna Somerville and Darren Fisher. Blending sensitive vocal harmonies with intricate guitar arrangements, mandolin and harmonica, they have a natural and free-spirited sound, and a warm engaging personality to their music, telling tales of love, loss and living off the land. With a musical style that has been described as ‘dream-folk', their melodic songs echo influences from 1960s folk musicians, modern Americana and their home in the South-West of England.
