Butesong 2019: Nerina Pallot, JJ Gilmour, The Dunwells, Chris Difford, Boo Hewerdine, Jill Jackson
Butesong is a 2-day festival of music dedicated to the art of the songwriter on the stunning Isle of Bute. Now in year 2 this is going to be another memorable event.
Ivor Novello and Brit Award-nominee Nerina Pallot is a gifted singer/songwriter who writes soulful lyrical songs woven with passionate sentiments. Driven by an obsessive love of music, she manages to create material that has a life all of its own.
In the words of Times Online, she has an 'astonishingly versatile voice' and a 'knack for alchemising half-focused images into phrases that haunt as long as her opulent tunes echo in the head'.

Leeds-based folk-rock outfit, The Dunwells, feature a pair of siblings - Joseph (vocals, guitar) and David Dunwell (vocal, piano, banjo, guitar) - along with a pair of their school friends: Rob Clayton on bass and Adam Taylor on drums.
Formed in 2009, the band specialise in lush four-part vocal harmonies and employ a heady mix of electric and acoustic instrumentation, drawing comparisons to Mumford & Sons and Fleet Foxes plus legends like the Eagles and Crosby, Stills & Nash.
