Folk21 London Showcase: Tattie Jam + James Findlay + Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin + Gren Bartley + GU4 (Guffaw)
This event takes place at Cecil Sharp House, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
With its big sound and unmistakable blend of instruments and vocals, Scots duo Tattie Jam brings a uniquely playful contemporary spin to trad and self-penned songs and tunes. Everything from 'bas to the wa' reels played in ways not normally associated with the cello, to haunting or provocative songs. 'The new face of Scottish traditional music', The Record, Ontario. 'No ordinary musicians', Festival Previews.
Tattie Jam tour dates
BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award winner 2010.
James comes from a family of folk singers and his enthusiasm lies firmly within the English tradition. He is particularly passionate about songs from his native west country. He couples this with an extensive repertoire and love for song.
"Bloody hell, what a voice! This was my first thought as he launched into his songs. He's warmly charismatic with that sparkle of personality that draws a crowd along with him." - JON BODEN
James Findlay tour dates
Phillip plays slide guitar, dobro, harmonica, beatbox harmonica & chatturangui. He is a figurehead for the next generation of English slide guitarists. His virtuoso playing encompasses 360 degrees of influence. He has studied the Delta blues bottleneck for many years and has developed a touch reminiscent of Ry Cooder, while his astounding harmonica technique is inspired by Sonny Terry.
Completing and complimenting this feast of music is Hannah, who is a fine fiddle and banjo player, as well as being a gifted vocalist and songwriter. Her interest in the traditional music scene around Devon (where she grew up) has led to a beautiful catalogue of songs that innovatively blend old traditions and new melodies.

Gren Bartley is a prolific and exceptional songwriter. He is constantly touring and forever writing. The critically acclaimed new album "Winter Fires" (out Spring 2013) is yet another giant leap forward and is building further upon the success of "Songs To Scythe Back The Overgrown" 2012. "A quiet triumph, no less" - fRoots

GU4 are a four part acappella harmony group based in Leicestershire. Their rich sound has won many fans and is now taking them to clubs and festivals throughout England. Armed only with a set of pitch pipes, they perform a wide variety of material ranging from gentle and sensitive love songs that can hold an audience rapt in silence, to raucous chorus numbers delivered with such verve that even the most reticent are encouraged to join in. Their repertoire comes straight from the English tradition or from contemporary writers such as Peter Bellamy, Graeme Miles, Benny Graham, George Thomas and their own Miggy Campbell.
