Mand'stock Warm Up Party: Brooke Sharkey + Will Varley + Adam Beattie + The Yuya + Theo Bard + Dan Korn + DJ CousCous
Brooke Sharkey has spent most of her life in London and France. She writes gypsy and blues inspired folk ballads in both languages, contrasting cotton wool folk melodies with strong and soulful vocals throughout her songs. Brooke Sharkey’s lyrics are emotional ponderings about relationships and life, its struggles and indeed its glories.
Words and melodies contain hauntingly poetic imagery strongly influenced by her time spent in France and her keen passion for travel, flitting between chanson and traditional English folk with a plethora of genres fused in-between. She has drawn comparisons to the likes of Kate Bush, Ane Brun and Cat Power.

The Yuya are Constance Dalrymple and Eliseo Soardi, formed in 2008 after a chance meeting at a fancy dress wedding and take their name from the Japanese boys name meaning '100 nights'. They play acoustic fuelled, avant-garde, toe-tapping indie-folk music.

A leading figure in the East London music scene, Theo is a skilled lyricist and multi-instrumentalist (guitar, violin, bass), with intelligent lyrics and a deft ear for melody. His songs celebrate love, friendships and good times, the thrills and spills of busking in London’s markets, and his legendary Woodburner music nights in Hackney.
Always delivered in the direct and frank narrative style that marks him out as an exceptional songwriter, his songs are borne of a lifetime steeped in music and song. He played violin from the age of four, spent his childhood singing round campfires at Forest School Camps, and honed his craft busking in London’s busy markets.
