Featuring

Neil Young & Promise Of The Real

Neil Young & Promise Of The Real appearing at this event

Acclaimed as one of the most important composers and performers of all time, Neil Young could almost be two artists in one body. His work ranges from the beautiful and moving folk sounds he has produced as a solo artist and with Crosby, Stills and Nash to the powerful and energetic rock which has often been the result of his collaboration with Crazy Horse and which earned him the nickname 'the Godfather of Grunge'.

Caitlin Rose

Caitlin Rose appearing at this event

Powerful Nashville country-folk singer-songwriter, drawing on influences from Linda Ronstadt, Gram Parsons, Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell. Caitlin tells stories of an evolving country. She speaks in a new generation of American twang of young American alcoholics falling in love at backyard weddings. The stories are old themes voiced with a new ease and energetic pace. Hers are evolutionary stories in surprising but truthful directions, where sometimes dead flowers mean so much more than live ones.

Jack Savoretti

Jack Savoretti appearing at this event

A bohemian troubadour in a long and sometimes glorious tradition. Maybe you've seen him busking on a street corner, and stopped for a moment, caught by a delicate web of soulful music spun for any passing ear. Think about Jeff Buckley, Ray LaMontagne, Nick Drake, Ben Harper, Damien Rice. Think of the grit and soul of Richard Ashcroft, the raw emotiveness of Neil Diamond. It's the singer and the song. Jack Savoretti is something special. Just one man and his guitar. This is pure music from the source.

Midlake appearing at this event

Texan band Midlake formed in 1999 after meeting at the University of North Texas. The band were originally influenced by jazz and funk, but after a few band member changes, they began turning their hand to music similar to that of early Radiohead and Grandaddy before beggining to dabble in lo-fi and electronica and seventies vintage-pop. The result is a band who are as diverse as their influences but whose southern charm and imagination constantly shine through.
