Singer/songwriter with a crystalline voice and a sound that meshes country rock with acoustic ballads combining elements of Woody Guthrie and Townes Van Zandt. Dean Owens is one of Scotland’s most acclaimed and established singer songwriters, with fans including Bob Harris, Irvine Welsh and Russell Brand. Armed with a searingly soulful voice and a neat line in memorable heart-twisting melodies, Dean filters his love of Americana through a gritty yet lyrical Scottish sensibility. A compelling and engaging live performer, with an innate ability to connect with any audience.

A four piece band from Brighton playing a mix of old-time bluegrass, original roots-based songs and idiosyncratic versions of country, folk and pop. Guitar, banjo, lapsteel, mandolin and upright bass accompany hoarse but heavenly harmonies.

Society are a three piece country rock band from West Sussex who specialise in gorgeous three part harmonies that set them apart from the current crop of Americana or West Coast rock wanabees in the UK. Comprising guitarist Matt Wise, bassist Ben Lancaster and on all things percussive F.Scott Kenny, their recorded and live sound has echoes of C.S.N.Y, The Band, The Heartbreakers, The Jayhawks and the late great Ronnie Lane and Slim Chance. Matt Wise composes most if not all of their material and when all three sing in harmony the result is simply stunning.
