This event takes place at O2 Academy Leeds, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
The brainchild of Brighton born singer/songwriter Mike Rosenberg. Formerly a five-piece band, Passenger has now pared back to basics, quite literally bringing music to the streets on a series of lengthy busking journeys across Australia, America and the United Kingdom. A classic journeyman musician, cut from the same mould as Van Morrison, Neil Young and John Prine, Passenger has the unique ability to move from the humorous to heartbreaking with every song.

From their beginnings as three actors who loved to sing together, Newfoundlanders The Once keep things uncomplicated, depending on the power of their voices and acoustic instruments. Singer Geraldine Hollett has a voice of rare power, so expressive she can tell a novel-length story with a few words. Accompanied by Phil Churchill and Andrew Dale on guitar, mandolin, fiddle and bouzouki, The Once create a perfect blend of voice and melody - sometimes melancholy, sometimes funny, always poignant.
