Sugar Magnolia





Click here for their website



Fans of Elvis and/or American industry may already know that Crown Electric is the name of the power company that employed the young Presley as a delivery truck driver until he got the call to record his first session at Sun Studios. Sixty years later, it’s also the title of the tenth album from Liverpool-born, Newcastle-based singer-songwriter Kathryn Williams.




Sugar Magnolia is the new collaboration between Jack Day and Bryony Afferson. Bryony Afferson is part of folk-trio Troubadour Rose, whose record Tell Me, released in September this year, attracted rave reviews from The Guardian and the Daily Express amongst others. Jack Day’s The First Ten, released in January this year, also attracted top reviews across the music press, including being named Best Roots Album in Q Magazine.

Furnace Mountain





Click here for their website


A great success when they played here two years ago, the music of Furnace Mountain is at times lively and raucous, with spirited fiddle melodies weaving in and around the powerful rhythms of the bass and bouzouki. It is at other times poignant and poetic, with sublime vocal harmonies beautifully interpreting some of the oldest songs ever written.

Members of the band have been playing together since 1995, and grew up in the same area of Virginia on or near the mountain bearing the same name.

Jez Lowe and The Bad Pennies

Jez Lowe and The Bad Pennies have been playing their songs and music of Northern England for a decade and a half around the folk festivals, clubs and concert stages of the world. “Acoustic simplicity coupled with electric vitality” was how they were described in their early days, and with half a dozen albums to their credit, along with solo albums by Jez and by other members of the group, their following has continued to increase.

The Wiyos






Click here for their website



The Wiyos have been rolling for over a decade. They were one of the first "old-timey" bands to emerge on the national scene in the first wave of acoustic bands riding the renewed popularity of early swing jazz, rural folk, old-time blues and Appalachian music. Here’s part of the review from their last Whistable Session - “…All the way from New York to Whitstable, they brought their unique blend of old time and contemporary, swing jazz, folk, blues and their strange-in-a-good-way take on the Wizard of Oz, their album Twist, which has just won the concept album title in the Independent Music Awards. They also threw in some great cover versions, from Woody Guthrie to Harry Nilsson.”

Details of our forthcoming sessions are listed below with links to the artists’ websites.

All sessions are upstairs at The Royal Native Oyster Stores Whitstable.
