Forty Elephant Gang - Young Mans Game
A rousing and innovative acoustic three piece. Their songs relay tales of heartbreak, misdeeds and revelry, presented with elements of Blues and Americana but with a classic British feel. A bit like Crosby, Stills & Nash but with Ray Davies and along for the ride!

Daisy Chute - London's On Fire
Edinburgh-born, half-American, hyphen-loving Daisy Chute is a folk songstress and multi-instrumentalist with a particular penchant for the banjo. Formerly of Decca's platinum-selling classical group All Angels, she is excited to be working on her d├ębut album of original songs with producer and songwriter Tim Baxter (Andy Burrows, Editors, Nick Mulvey, Jasmine Thompson).

Ariana Brophy - A Bit Of Fresh Air
Ariana Brophy is the songwriting equivalent of mulled wine; sweet, nostalgic, perfectly paired with a rainy evening and a fireplace. With vocal clarity that would suggest she has been singing a lifetime, Ariana's listeners are invited to observe an unreserved and vulnerable portrait of the soul behind her lyrics.

Honey And The Bear - Dark Heart
Honey & the Bear combine interweaving vocal harmonies with a diverse range of sounds and textures. Conjuring stories in song, they tell tales of Suffolk folklore, courage, passion and heartbreak with rhythms that flow from the fast and furious to gentle ballads.

The Countrymen - The Trees On The Hill
Six middle-aged musicians with tight four-part harmony vocals and a token Cornishman. With a relaxed and light-hearted presentation style they take the audience on a journey through the history and culture of Cornwall, featuring their own arrangements of traditional and contemporary songs, as well as some original material.

Neal Hoffmann - Instinct And Feel
In lots of ways I think of myself as someone who follows his head and has a very rational side. But I also follow my instincts a lot and have learned to trust that side of my personality. The song explores this and looks at the impact the approach has on a relationship.

Steamtown - The Kids
Steamtown are a duo from Knaresborough with a guitar, a Banjo and a suitcase singing about love, politics, hard drinking and trains. This is Yorkshire Americana delivered with a smile and acoustic music to make you tap your feet.

Henry Parker - Silent Spring
Having supported the likes of Michael Chapman, Lau and Soft Machine, Henry Parker toes the line between folk music and progressive rock. His finger-picked guitar style owes much to the 60's/ 70's style of Jansch, Renbourn and Nick Drake.

Nic Norton & The County Band - Matthew I Never Knew
Nic Norrton & The County Band are made up of wonderful singer Alice Mills with the colourful and often dark songwriting from Nic Norton and the inspired fiddler Mollie Narayn-Barrow. Independent music at it's very best, said one review

Amy Hopwood - The Call Of The Wind Witch
The song was inspired by the old harbourside tradition of selling knotted ropes to sailors to help them control the wind at sea. What could possibly go wrong with that? It's taken from Amy Hopwood's second album, "All At Sea".

Karen Marshalsay - The Road To Kennacraig
