Me For Queen - Leave

The Most Ugly Child - Today You Said Goodbye

Toby Hay - Claerwen
"Place, memory, nature, loss and dreamed-of geographies are the subjects of this beautiful music.  There is a sadness at what has gone here, but not a nostalgia. The world's dew gleams on this music, but the world's dust swirls through it too." Robert Macfarlane.

Thom Ashworth - Tyne Of Harrow
Thom hails from Hampshire, but calls East London home, and has a stripped back approach to British traditional music, taking his 'home' instrument – bass, from supportive roles to the fore, along with restrained percussion, and Thom's powerful tenor voice.
