Scottish folk musician Donovan Philips Leitch rose to fame in the 1960s with a mix of folk, jazz, pop and psychedelia. Between 1966 and 1970, he produced several albums that were hits in both America and the UK and collaborated with The Beatles. After a lull in the following decades, Donovan experienced a revival with the Rave scene in the 1990s, later to release the album Beat Cafe in 2004.

The BRIT awards winner of Best British Female Solo Artist of 2006 needs little introduction these days - the evidence of her success is unavoidable in Britain today. By her own testimony, her rather personal and reflective music is rooted in her adopted childhood; 'I grew up knowing I could have had a million different lives. It makes your life mysterious and your imagination go wild.'
She's earned a solid reputation as a live performer and also pioneered the use of live sampling in chart music, which features significantly in her concerts with the use of a pedal she refers to as 'Wee B**tard'.
