Since they burst onto the music scene in 1990, the alt-rockers from Bellshill have made a huge impact on music with their Byrds-esque guitars and harmony vocals. Although pigeonholed as an alternative band, they are known for incorporating a wide variety of elements from various music styles in their songs.

The Divine Comedy

The Divine Comedy appearing at this event

Neil Hannon's band has been through several changes of style and line-up since their 1990 debut EP. Although the original band split up shortly after their second release, Neil continued as a singer/songwriter and released two more low-key albums in 1994, still under the name The Divine Comedy. The band's breakthrough came in 1995 when Neil wrote the theme tune to the hit TV comedy Father Ted and Chris Evans played their new track, Something For The Weekend, on his breakfast radio show. The song became a hit, as did their next two singles: Becoming More Like Alfie and The Frog Princess. Since then The Divine Comedy have gone from strength to strength, known for their superb indie and baroque tinged pop songs and innovative live performances.

Cabbage

Cabbage appearing at this event

'Cabbage are a neo-post punk band from Manchester, whose drum beats a different beat and whose musical axis free-wheels along its own off-centred path. A truly original band, Cabbage is steeped in satire and diverse musicianship. With Lee Broadbent on vocals, Eoghan Clifford and Joe Martin on guitar, Stephen Evans on bass and Asa Morley on drums, Cabbage appear to be making it all up as they go along, through all their evolving creativity and bursting spontaneity.'

John Smith

John Smith appearing at this event

John Smith's mesmerising percussive guitar and storytelling has been winning fans everywhere. Whether it be playing the guitar lap-style like a drum, detuning the strings mid-chorus or just straight-forward rumbling fingerstyle, the Devon man's playing has prompted both hushed appreciation and riotous standing ovations. 'John Smith again demonstrates why he is the guitarists’ guitarist. His steel-strung acoustic playing adding a beguiling complexity to songs that possess a sharp communicative clarity and directness' (The Sunday Times) 'A man with one of those rattling hearts. It's a true heart. It's a hurt heart' (Daytrotter) 'Songs that impress with the beauty of John's guitar work and intertwined vocals. Staggeringly good' (Acoustic) 'Beyond beautiful' (Jo Whiley, Radio 2).

Palace Winter

Palace Winter appearing at this event

Palace Winter are Copenhagen-based Australian Carl Coleman and Dane Caspar Hesselager. Having played in bands separately for years, a mutual respect for each other’s styles encouraged them to start writing together. Carl coming from a song-writing background. Caspar, a producer and classically trained pianist. Both, however, appreciate a strong melody, which is evident throughout the atmospheric dark-pop they create.
