Stew Simpson appearing at this event

Stew Simpson is mostly known as the frontman and lead singer for contempory folk duo Hadrian's Union. He has been performing as a singer and songwriter for over 20 years and is signed to Fellside Records as a part of Hadrian's Union. Stew has played all over the UK at folk festivals, Clubs and on Radio Stations. Stew says: "I wasn't brought up with folk music, folk music found me and it made me fall in love with my roots in a way that may never have happened if i'd stayed in Newcastle. I'm proud to call myself a folk singer and i've really enjoyed the journey in discovering that to be the best person I can be, is by being honest and open with my audience."

Jack of Hearts

Jack of Hearts' music is like taking a journey you didn't expect through a rich landscape - each song tells a story, is melodically catchy, unapologetically folky and romantic; a beautiful blend of guitar and flute that lifts the soul, and rouses the spirit. You'll find yourself singing along without even realising it. Sounds like if Nick Drake and Cat Stevens fell through a George Ezra song.
