SUNJAY BRAYNE 2

 

“A great guitarist who can sound so much like me that it scares me. He can also sound like Steve Tilston. Come to think of it, he can probably sound like anyone he wants, including himself. Check him out.” – Chris Smither

“Great playing and above all else it really swings...I'm going to have to connect jump leads to your fingers." – Steve Tilston


“An amazing picker, a must see.” – Terry Reid

 

Winner of the Wath Festival Young Performers Award 2012, BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award Nominee 2012 & New Roots           Competition Finalist 2012, Sunjay’s accolades are formidable for somebody who turned 19 just a few months ago. It’s a           testimony to how hard he has been working, travelling all over the country since the release of his first album ‘Seems So Real’, performing whenever and wherever possible. Whether headlining or supporting, in 2012 Sunjay played just over 100 gigs. So is   it any wonder that he’s now embarking on a Tour right through to August, with dates already in the calendar up to the end of   2014?

Ruth-Ken-300x200 Dave Walmisley

RISKY BUSINESS 
www.ruthandkenpowell.co.uk

Ruth Fuga, Ken Powell and Dave Walmisley came together many years ago to form Risky Business after they had all had successful individual music careers and after 13 years they again went their separate ways before coming together again for another tour. Not surprisingly they were readily engaged by those who knew of their former brillance and we are glad to say that not only were we at their farewell concert but we shall be there at their renaissance.

Winter Wilson

WINTER WILSON 

After meeting in a pub session, Dave & Kip's first musical collaboration was with folk-rock band Ragtrade, playing a mix of traditional and modern covers, with a few of Dave's original songs.

Following the demise of Ragtrade in 1994, a chance offer to play in their local pub (the Cross Keys in Upton, Notts) led  to the formation of Winter Wilson.

Since that date there have been 6 albums, numerous tours, festival and radio appearances. And a wedding.

Today Winter Wilson are known for beautiful songs, beautifully sung. Stunning harmonies, thought-provoking and often challenging lyrics, all held together with a weird, off-the-wall humour all of their own.

THE HOUSE DEVILS

The musicianship from this band is outstanding - UK Folk Music

The Band consists of Mat Walklate, Matt Fahey, Jonny Hulme and Anthony Haller.

A little bit about the House Devils
One day back in 1930s Dublin, Matt's grandma Mary Fahey was walking down Rialto Street when she stopped to chat to a neighbour. 

When the conversation turned to the subject of their respective children, the neighbour remarked that Mary must be very proud of her son Colm (later to become Matt's dad) as he was such a “lovely, well-mannered boy”. 
Mary replied that Colm was indeed a fine young man, but that he could be a handful at times, especially at home. When the neighbour expressed surprise at this, Mary replied,
“You know what they say: Street Angel – House Devil.

Flossie2

FLOSSIE MALAVIALLE 

a voice as clear and tuneful as a lark - Colum Sands 

She has released 10 albums since 2002, "Thistledown" (September 2002), "Mistral" (March 2003), "Flossie sings Piaf" (May 2003) , "Making up the Miles" in December 2004, "The Wilderness Years" in November 2006, "Flossie sings Brel" in November 2007, "What a Wonderful World" (June 2009) with pianist Michael Mulroy, (mainly a collection of jazz standards alongside some very famous modern classics) "The Tour Collection" (September 2009) which release coincided with the Show of Hands 2009 County Towns Tour, "Dark Horses" (January 2010) which is a collection of songs written by Keith Donnelly and interpreted by Flossie. Again, this album was released to coincide with the Fairport Convention Wintour for which they did the support in 2010 as their duo Dark Horses. They also took the album to Australia where they toured extensively in the Spring of 2011. 
The latest addition to the collection is called "X" (as in "10" and not the letter "x") and celebrates the 10 years that Flossie has spent in the UK so far... incidentally it's also her 10th album so the title wasn't too hard to find ;-) The album was recorded in August 2012 with Paul Donnelly at the Cluny Studios in Newcastle and features songs by Martyn Joseph, Kate McGarrigle, Carole King, Eva Cassidy, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Randy Newman etc...

Zoe Mulford banjo

ZOE MULFORD

A brilliant, highly original songwriter who delivers her music with warmth and sincerity and a bit of a twinkle.

A set by American songwriter Zoe Mulford is like a small volume of short stories - evocative, beautifully crafted, and endlessly varied. Whether her starting-point is a polar expedition in 1845 or a Greyhound bus ride in 2007, her vivid storytelling and down-to-earth humor take listeners on an enjoyable journey. Backing her clear voice with guitar or claw-hammer banjo, she draws on the traditional music of the US and the British Isles to make sense of the modern world. She has four albums on Azalea City Recordings, an independent label based in Takoma Park, MD. She was raised near Philadelphia, but now lives in the northwest of England and plays on both sides of the Atlantic.
