Greg Hancock appearing at this event

Greg Hancock is a Devon-based singer-songwriter with a growing following around the UK. After many years overseas writing songs in private it was only five years ago that he began to perform in public supporting some of the top names in the modern folk/ acoustic scene such as Cara Dillon, Boo Hewerdine, Lucy Ward, Jim Causeley, Jacob and Drinkwater and Charlie Dore, in 2017 he recorded a full length lalbum titled “A303” which fully showcased his intricate guitar playing and quirky, unexpected song structures and subject matter - and was enthusiastically received and has been given extensive airplay. A new album called "The State of My Hair" is to be released on March 1st 2019 and a series of live dates around the country will accompany the release. Most of the live events will be collaborations with other musicians Greg has become friends with, in the form of songwriters circles or double headline gigs. The review from Blues & Roots Radio said: “..the finest folk album I have heard for years.”

Chris Cleverley

Chris Cleverley's trademark solo live sound has been likened to the magnitude of a full orchestra, only to moments later pull audiences to the very edge of their seats to soak in the delicate spider-like touch of his fingerstyle guitar playing. Chris has gone from strength to strength since winning Bristol Folk Festival's 2014 Isambard Folk Award, joining the ranks of previous winners such as BBC folk award nominees Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker, followed up by a memorable performance at 2014's Stroud Folk Festival. Chris has stirred up a formidable word-of-mouth reputation.
