Peace One Day Celebration: Imelda May + Newton Faulkner + Guillemots + Wonder Villains
One of Ireland's most celebrated female artists, Imelda May takes you on a twistin' ride influenced by the likes of Wanda Jackson, Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent, but all delivered with Imelda's own unique voice and lyrics. Her stompin' anthems 'Johnny Got A Boom Boom', 'Psycho' and 'Inside Out' all sounded like 1950s classics. However, the modern queen of Rockabilly has since broadened her sound, now taking in elements of blues, rock, soul, gospel and jazz.

Newton Faulkner makes soulful and heartfelt acoustic blues with a pop edge and a distinctively laid-back style. Hailed by many as the 'next Jack Johnson', his music covers many genres, including folk, blues, soul and country.

Epic, tuneful music, as bizarre as it is beautiful, Guillemots take the audience on a journey through a melting pot of synth, strings and jazz breaks with an overlying melody that breaks your heart and rouses, all at the same time. As odd as the Flaming Lips, but as sweet as Elbow, gUiLLeMoTs are quirky, experimental and vastly entertaining to watch.

Wonder Villains are brother and sister Kieran and Eimear Coyle, Cheylene Murphy and Ryan McGroarty. From Derry – the UK Capital of Culture 2013 – they make blistering anti-pop not entirely dissimilar in spirit from that legendary Derry band the Undertones
The band have played America, Morocco, toured the UK and supported the likes of New Young Pony Club, Castiotone For The Painfully Alone and The Undertones amongst others, as well as playing on the Introducing stage at Radio 1’s One Big Weekend
They smash through two minute pop songs while cranking the distortion on their homemade keyboard sounds and their first three singles Zola, Ferrari and TV received plays nationally on BBC Radio 1, Radio 2, 6 Music, XFM, Q, Absolute Radio. Radio 1 support also came in the form of a Maida Vale Huw Stephens session and a BBC Radio 1 Introducing playlist.
