Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
A great Leicester acoustic singer-songwriter, counting Billy Bragg amongst her fan base. She writes indie folk rock songs (a couple with an acoustic punk twist), plays the guitar and sings with a voice that has been described by listeners as similar to Laura Marling, Kate Nash and nothing you’ve ever heard before.
Grace Petrie tour dates
Claiming her first BBC Comedy Award by the age of 17, Josie returned to performing after finishing University, notably at the Edinburgh Fringe, where she carried on winning awards for 'Kindness and Exuberance' (Best Newcomer) and later in 2007/8 for 'Trying Is Good'.
The Telegraph have described her as 'one of the most exciting female comics around'. Josie's humour is warm, optimistic and endearing, filled with rambling daft tales and all the things she likes in the world and which cheer her up.
'An original and unflagging spirit, oozing enthusiasm and intellect… Long builds delightful comedy worlds' (The Times)
'An absolute delight' (Time Out)
'An original and unflagging spirit... A passion for ideas and creativity... this is a lovely show' (The Guardian).
Josie Long tour dates
London singer-songwriter now based in Bristol/Bath mixing bitter-sweet romance with wry comedy. Usually appearing as a solo artist, but occasionally performs with a cellist and backing vocalist. "Gavin Osborn writes minutely detailed, bittersweet story-songs on an acoustic guitar and sings them with a comic timing usually absent from the works of his anti-folk contemporaries" - Stewart Lee, Sunday Times.
Gavin Osborn tour dates
Known for her observational comedy and songs, Joanna is established as one of the country's top character comediennes.
Joanna Neary tour dates
Described as 'a Jacques Brel for the '90s', Philip Jeays is a critically acclaimed singer / songwriter / pianist / showman.
Jeays carries the influence of Jacques Brel and the Gallic chanson tradition, all bound by a dry English wit.
Philip Jeays tour dates
Jim Bob was, and occasionally still is, singer with indie/punk legends Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine with whom he headlined Glastonbury and had a ton of chart hits, including a number 1 album. He is also the author of two novels ‘Storage Stories’ and ‘Driving Jarvis Ham’.
