Canadian-born Brit-punk, guitarist and songwriter Baz has played with Sunderland punks Toy Dolls, Smalltown Heroes, The Troubleshooters (1000+ gigs) and Sun Devils. Most recently called up by the Stranglers to fulfil their guitar requirements, Baz continues to play solo performances playing a selection of his own material with maybe a few Stranglers songs thrown in for good measure.

Huddersfield's Jon Strong had early musical collaborations with many well-known names from the folk scene, such as Kieran Halpin and Tom McConville, and toured with Ry Cooder, Van Morrison, Robert Palmer, Talk Talk, Danny Thompson and Clannad. With original members Roy Whyke on drums, Duncan Waller on bass and Jon Strong on dazzling acoustic guitar and booming, passionate vocals, this is one of the tightest 3-piece bands you will see.

Reg's imaginative and finely crafted songs have earned him the title of Master Storyteller (Pennyblack Music), and prompted Mike Harding to introduce him onto the stage of The Royal Albert Hall as 'one of the finest singer-songwriters this country has produced'. Reg is a true modern day troubadour – commenting on life as he sees it, with some of the most beautifully disarming songs and lyrics ever written.
“…sounds like a forgotten, American 60s classic with echoes of Dylan, Tom Paxton & Leonard Cohen” Robin Denselow, The Guardian
“There’s something special about the way he writes and delivers a song” Townes Van Zandt.
In the mid-1980s Reg Meuross formed the Panic Brothers with Richard Morton, mixing Americana with humour and slick harmonies. Then came the Flamingos, Hank Wangford, and now 11 highly acclaimed solo albums have established his songs as ‘the hinges upon which swing the doors of perceptive English folk’ (Folkwords).
Reg’s songs comment bravely on life as he sees it, bringing wide ranging stories from the ghosts of WW1 soldiers to the ravages of dementia, and some of the most beautifully disarming songs and lyrics ever written. Reg has that rare gift of being able to touch people, through his songs and performance, on a really human level. His words and music paint pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung.
“Meuross, quite simply, is one of the best” Malcolm Carter, Pennyblack Music
“Powerful and moving songwriting” Martin Chilton, The Telegraph
“A mighty songwriter and an equally fine singer” Martin Carthy
'Magnificent, powerful & moving' (Pete Townshend).
'Intelligent and thought-provoking songs, beautifully made and skilfully delivered' (The Times).

Legendary North East band, The Caffreys, have earned a formidable reputation based on heartfelt and uplifting original songs, incredible musicianship, dynamic live performances and – at the core of The Caffreys sound - astonishing close harmonies. The Caffreys create a sound which is variously rocky, rootsy, folky and always engaging.
