Headliner Essex born singer and musician Kevin Pearce broke into the music world with his debut album, “Pocket Handkerchief Dream”, with its unique cocktail of acoustic sounds, vintage electro FX and souring vocals produced by Dean Honour who previously worked with Human League and Roisin Murphy (ex-Moloko). His follow up, concept album, “Mathew Hopkins & The Wormhole”, is an album of dark and haunting selection of songs evoking the flat, grey skied landscapes of pastoral Essex.
“Pearce’s delivery, emotional yet mellow, will invite some comparisons to Nick Drake, but it’s a comparison that Pearce can bear, as the material is of such quality……” Acoustic Magazine
“A keening vocal reminiscent of Cat Stevens …..” The Independent.
Support artist, rising singer-songwriter Saskia Griffiths-Moore has been #1 in Bristol’s folk charts since August 2015. Frequently compared to Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell and Eva Cassidy for her clear, enchanting tones, passionate and creative melodies and her perfect, natural sound, Saskia’s original songs draw on Americana, Roots & Folk music. Her thoughtful, mesmerizing and strikingly beautiful songs delivered with humour and passion have made Saskia a tour favorite both in her native Gloucestershire and the folk and acoustic scene in general. “…a fine singer-songwriter…wonderful voice and great guitar playing …..” Johnny Coppin, BBC Radio Gloucestershire.
