Lera Lynn

Lera Lynn appearing at this event

Lera Lynn is a singer songwriter from Athens Georgia who specialises in southern folk and American music. When Lera Lynn takes the stage, there is an undeniable feeling that she is something different, something special. Her sultry voice has a way of wrapping around melodies, enveloping the listener in her lyrics, rife with a plainspoken yet cutthroat honesty. When combined with her chordings, which are distinct, original and timeless in their own right, what is revealed is a songwriting craftsman already well on her way to establishing a niche that is very much her own.

Worry Dolls

Worry Dolls appearing at this event

Worry Dolls are a compelling duo born out of the joint talents of multi-instrumentalists Zoe Nicol and Rosie Jones. Serendipity brought them together at an open mic night when they were 18, both studying music in Liverpool. Both redheads with guitars, on their chosen path of becoming solo singer songwriters, and both falling under the spell of ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’ T?hey set off? from University? together?,? making music as Worry Dolls. It was a new sound, blending the tender urgency of Zoe’s Irish-influenced voice with the fiery integrity of Rosie’s vocals and rhythmic guitar. Zoe transferred her fingerpicking skills to ukulele, followed by Earl Scruggs-style banjo, motivated by players like Emily Robison (Dixie Chicks).? These days playing piano has been added to the live performances and Worry Dolls frequently perform with a band.? They have also started touring in Europe spreading the special blend of UK Americana folk rock.
