Widely acknowledged as one of the finest acoustic and slide guitar players in the world, Martin Simpson's interpretations of traditional songs are masterpieces of storytelling. His solo shows are intense, eclectic, spellbinding and deeply moving. His own song writing has produced some real gems, from the truck-stop epic Love Never Dies, to the profoundly moving Never Any Good. His career includes collaborations on stage and record with June Tabor, Kelly Joe Phelps, Jackson Browne, Danú, Martin Carthy, Cara Dillon and many more. Simpson is a very regular nominee in the BBC Folk Awards and received Musician of the Year in 2002 and 2005.

Hudson Taylor are brothers from the southern suburbs of Dublin who write beguiling folk songs. Comprising brothers Harry and Alfie, Hudson Taylor take their inspiration from both folk and pop, with a vivacity all their own.
Hudson Taylor tour dates
A Wolverhampton born singer / songwriter, Scott's musical past has seen him experiment with funk, indie, rock and soul, but his solo career has seen him take a more focused route towards folk and blues and he spent most of June 2006 supporting the Foo Fighters on their string of acoustic concerts across the UK.
With influences including The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, Joni Mitchell, Marc Bolan and Joe Satriani, his music is often likened to that of American singer/songwriter Jeff Buckley.
Scott Matthews tour dates
Sarah McQuaid is a gifted and captivating performer whose warm, haunting alto is delicately cradled by her sparkling guitar. She performs Appalachian folk songs, Elizabethan ballads and 1930s jazz numbers interspersed with eloquent story telling. She has released three solo albums -
'When Two Lovers Meet' (1997), 'I Won't Go Home 'Til Morning' (2008) and 'The Plum Tree and the Rose' (2012) - in addition to 'Crow Coyote Buffalo' (2009), released with co-writer Zoë under the band name Mama. 'A great songwriter and traditional singer, and a wonderful guitarist' - Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2.
