Brian Ashley-Jones

Great original Americana songs influenced by traditional Country and Blues! Brian Ashley Jones is a soulful singer, acclaimed guitarist, and versatile touring songwriter whose Bluesy Americana guitar-driven tunes have found their way into film and television and have been recorded by many other performing artists.

John Crampton

John Crampton is an amazing musician who will have everyone up on their feet. Born in London and self-taught on a national steel slide guitar, banjo and harmonica. Influenced by Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Bukka White, John Hammond and Mississippi Fred Mcdowell.

Morganway

Morganway’s fiery brand of alt-country is all about driving riffs, charismatic four-part harmonies, emotional song writing and compelling live performances. The band’s distinctive Americana glow wears its heart on music that’s raw, melodic, sincere, full of energy and yearning for the open road.

Coffeepot Drive

Larger than life blues rock band. Infectious, original music that will get you stomping your feet and sweating it out! You’d be forgiven for thinking this London based blues band had just crawled out of the hot and still waters of a Mississippi bayou with the hot, sticky and gritty blues they lay down.

The Thumping Tommy’s

Quickly establishing a reputation as one of the most sought after groups on the British folk music scene, The Thumping Tommy’s are a collection of talented musicians specialising in old-time music. The Thumping Tommy’s play a heady brew of Irish and American folk music performed with a distinctly English style.

Belle Roscoe

With their new wave indie folk/ rock sound this independent and international band, hailing from Melbourne, Australia has been building a solid underground buzz in Europe and the UK recently. Led by siblings Matty & Julia Gurry, Belle Roscoe has spent time in Europe defining their sound & collaborating with European musicians. The band have recently worked with legendary US producer Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, The Shins, Paper Kites). Refreshingly cool & epic indie melodies married with an underground contemporary electronic world are the result.
