Sam Kelly is a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winning Cornwall-based singer, song-writer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. As a young child, Sam spent many a night enraptured, listening to his Irish grandfather tell folk tales, sing folk songs, and play folk tunes on his melodeon. Having caught the bug, Sam has dedicated his life to rediscovering and renewing the sounds of his Gaelic heritage, and creating exciting new music that transcends the boundaries of traditional and popular music.
Already known for touring as a trio with Jamie Francis (banjo) and Evan Carson (percussion), Sam now also has a six-piece band; The Lost Boys, to help his songs reach their full potential. Joining Sam, Jamie and Evan are Ciaran on fiddle and guitar, Graham on cello, and the exceptional Toby Shaer (John McCusker band, Heidi Talbot band) on flutes, whistles, and cittern.

John first achieved notoriety with his eye-watering performance on Old Grey Whistle Test and subsequent hit single 'Really Free' in 1977. A heady mix of blind ambition and rank incompetence was to keep this microstar shining for almost two decades despite Otway's ability to turn any situation to his own disadvantage.
His autobiography 'Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure' out sold, by a factor of ten, all the records he had released since his hit, and now Otway is struggling to live up to this billing - selling out London Astoria for his 2000th gig in 1993, filling the Royal Albert Hall in 1998, and charting at number 9 with his 2002 single 'Bunsen Burner'. For John 'Two Hits' Otway, 'the future's bright; the future's Otway!

Blackbeard's Tea Party combine fiddle, melodeon and voice with the interlocking grooves of two hand percussionists, a distorted electric guitar, and funk-inflected bass patterns. Though their music often takes traditional tunes and songs as the starting point, it's clear that Blackbeard's Tea Party is not for folk purists. Theirs is a gutsy take on folk which aims to renounce the trendy twee of bands like Mumford and Sons in favour of folk's darker and more primitive origins, all by way of classic rock, funk and dance music. The resulting arrangements are often quirky and boisterous. This playfulness - along with their anarchic and ebullient stage show - has won Blackbeard's Tea Party a small legion of fans.
Blackbeard's Tea Party tour dates

Amongst a digital mountain range littered with accomplished folk-ish bands and singer- songwriters, it is a rare miracle to come across a cave so rich in jewels as the one beneath Ida Wenøe’s ribcage.
While she has an obvious appreciation of Americana, her sound is laced with more English undertones: the kind of sound Edward Woodward might have heard downstairs in the local inn had the Wicker Man been filmed in a remote Danish village, while Sarah Lund scoured for clues in her jumper. Like the best of the Nordic Noir leaving the Danish mainland, the recordings are at once both sonically pure and grimy; there’s a shared loneliness that makes you feel that you’re not at all; and all the while there is an honesty to the song-writing that tugs at your sleeve.
Sure, she has the usual credible influences from Vashti to Joni, from Neil Young to Danish folk
hero Sebastian; and there are hints of Sandy Denny, Linda Perhacs and a vibe shared with current artists such as Julia Jacklin and Odetta Hartman. But to list artists she sounds like would be to miss the point entirely. As anyone who has witnessed a live show can attest, Ida Wenøe is very definitely Ida Wenøe.
Wenøe´s debut album “Time of Ghosts” (2017) created plenty of attention, resulting in national radio coverage in the UK & Denmark, live showcases in Denmark, Sweden, USA, England, Germany, Switzerland, The Faroe Islands & Poland and a Danish Music Award nomination as “Folk Songwriter of the Year”, followed by well received tours in the UK, Italy, Germany & Austria and a growing list of international festival appearances including Folk Alliance (USA), Nordklang Festival (Switzerland), Spring Break Festival (Poland), Live At Heart (Sweden), Torstrassen Festival (Germany) & numerous festivals in Denmark.
Collaborations with the likes of US artists Matt The Electrician and The Brian Jonestown Massacre and Canadian troubadour Nick Doneff have epitomised Ida’s sense of adventure and brought her unique voice to a wider audience.
Second album The Things We Don’t Know Yet, co-produced by Esben Svane in Copenhagen, is released via Songcrafter Music/Integrity Records on 12th April 2019, preceded by new single Another Kind of Love.

Sam Brothers is a massive talent - a remarkable guitarist and unique song-writer, blessed with an astonishing voice that recalls the gentle sensitivity of Nick Drake, but underscored by the screaming power and swooping range of Jeff Buckley, and yet with something more, an honesty and intensity that is purely Sam Brothers.
His songs reflect the truths that his single-minded lifestyle and tough choices have delivered. Rooted in the raw passion of the early protest singers and touching on the beauty of the first wave of folksters – Sam’s songs are invested with echoes of Dylan, Buckley, Drake, Van Zandt, and all the stops along the long, old, lonely road that those illustrious names illuminate.
