Thunder and Rain

With their roots in traditional bluegrass and folk, this Colorado-based five-piece has established a strong footing, appealing to the same audience as The Stray Birds, Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys and The Pine Hearts. Fusing elements of rock and pop with acoustic instrumentation, they have created a very distinctive sound of their own.

May Erlewine

Jackie Oates

Jackie Oates is synonymous with the reinvigoration of English folk. Her mellifluous voice, plaintive fiddle and tantalizing approach to traditional songs gained her several BBC Folk Awards in a career that’s seen her perform as a member of the nascent Unthanks, collaborate with Alasdair Roberts and Belinda O’Hooley, and release six acclaimed solo albums.

An inventive and enthralling artist; who else can say they’ve been immortalised as a Lush cosmetic, featured on Lauren Laverne’s 6 Music show and appeared in Midsomer Murders.

Six months after releasing the album True Born Irishman, Daoirí won two prestigious BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2017 for Best Newcomer and Best Traditional Track, and performed live at the awards ceremony at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

His most recent album So Much to Defend has received wide critical acclaim. 

On stage Chris has the air of a craftsman who no longer needs to be precious about his art. Without any apparent effort he reaches deep into an enviable repertoire of songs before revealing another gem.
