Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys






Visit their website


When Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys found each other jamming at open mics and music festivals around Michigan they couldn’t have predicted what would lie ahead of them. Having earned their name late night at a Michigan Bluegrass festival from a fellow picker who proclaimed, "It's good to see you Flatbellys out here pickin with us Greybeards," today Lindsay Lou and the Flatbellys keep one foot in The Great Lakes State and the soul of Motown, and one in Music City, USA: Nashville, TN. They still embody the soul of a good jam or late night pickin’ session, and also have honed in on a sound that’s entirely their own drawing from soul, blues, folk, jazz and maybe even a traces of that techno beat.

Hannah Brown




Visit her website



Lewis & Leigh – Al Lewis from Wales and Alva Leigh from Mississippi – release their debut album ‘Ghost. A stunning collection of self-penned originals, ‘Ghost’ is the culmination of a collaboration that began in 2014 when the two solo musicians first began writing together. Recorded in January 2016 at Urchin Studios in London with Matt Ingram, ‘Ghost’ celebrates the differences in their individual experiences whilst finding common ground. They received two nominations (Best UK Song & Best UK Act) at the inaugural UK Americana Awards earlier this year. A stand out acoustic performance around one microphone at that event led to invitations to join Billy Bragg’s songwriters’ round at Glastonbury, to open shows for Deacon Blue on their UK tour in November and to make a return visit to the US Americana Festival in Nashville in September.

Hannah Brown is a 16-year-old singer songwriter born in London.

In addition to singing, Hannah plays guitar, piano, ukulele and harmonica. When she was two years old her parents temporarily moved to the Maltese island of Gozo, where they ended up staying for 14 years. The family will be moving back to the UK in 2016 where Hannah will be studying music at a Brighton college.

She grew up listening to the likes of Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, John Martyn and Tracy Chapman being played at home; not only has she been influenced by these musicians but also has favourites of her own including Laura Marling, Ben Howard, Paolo Nutini and Damien Rice.

Bronwynne Brent Trio







Visit her website


Mississippi Delta songbird, Bronwynne Brent returns to these shores having entranced the UK on her last visit.

Now established as a major force, Bronwynne ended 2016 on a high, carrying off the Best Female Performer title (voted by the general public) at the hugely-influential AmericanaUK website for the second year running.

Her spine-tingling vocal style has been compared to Billie Holiday, Peggy Lee and Amy Winehouse - a remarkable singer-songwriter who simply oozes class.  Bob Harris, playing tracks repeatedly on his BBC Radio 2 show told listeners her music is “absolutely gorgeous - really special!"
She was flown in for headline appearances at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections festival last year and recorded a BBC studio session at Whispering Bob’s invitation.

This time, she brings her illustrious producer and highly-rated guitarist Johnny Sangster over from the USA to accompany her, and top bass player Jay Darwish completes the trio. Sangster played on both of Bronwynne’s last albums and has recently toured with both KD Lang and Neko Case, and Darwish is heavily in-demand too, having worked with musicians of the calibre of Sting and Newton Faulkner.

“Stunning” American Roots UK
