    “The precision and sophistication of the writing and playing blows me away. I am so glad to be involved,” writes guitar legend Michael Chapman in his introduction to Sarah McQuaid’s fifth solo album If We Dig Any Deeper It Could Get Dangerous – which he offered to produce after meeting Sarah at a festival where they were both on the bill.

    Recently honoured with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Ards International Guitar Festival in Northern Ireland, Sarah’s also drawn critical praise for her voice (which has been variously likened to malt whiskey and melted chocolate) and her engaging rapport with audiences: “I’ve attended hundreds of concerts of all kinds, and her subtle mastery onstage launches her straight into my fave shows ever,” wrote The Huffington Post.

    Reviewers of the Madrid-born, Chicago-raised, Cornwall-based singer/songwriter’s previous albums have repeatedly alluded to her “relative obscurity” (The Big Takeover) and “under-the-radar” (The Vinyl District) profile. With her new album – on which she expands her battery of instruments to include piano and electric guitar – she looks set to change that.

    “One voice, one guitar, and the wondrous reminder of the magic of music. Sarah has the gift.” – The Huffington Post

    “The songs are acutely observed and literate, almost like journal notes set to music. They’re measured and tranquil but they’re never dull because there is always a sense of restlessness and unease behind the poetry.... And it’s all lovely.” – R2/Rock 'n' Reel

    One of the country's leading tribute bands, celebrating two of the greatest rock bands of them all: Deep Purple & Led Zeppelin - on the same bill for the very first time.

    In a ‘full on’ show, using the same stage costumes, guitars and equipment as the original bands, you’ll hear more than 30 classic songs. Basically: the best bits!

    However, this is more than just a great band performing the ‘Greatest Hits’ – it’s a theatrical insight to these two giants of Rock, complete with special effects, onstage ‘artistic differences’ and even some audience participation!

    With the accent firmly on entertainment, this is a show not to be missed, complete with Ritchie Blackmore’s on stage antics, Jimmy Page’s twin neck guitar and theremin and a very special violin bow solo.

    Purple Zeppelin are four talented and versatile musicians – with decades of playing between them comprising thousands of sessions and gigs, both in the UK and overseas.

    Mitch Benn: 'I'm Still Here'

    Congratulations! It's 2018 and you're still here! So is Mitch, ("the country's leading musical satirist" The Times) looking backwards, forwards and sideways trying to make the world a better place, one silly song at a time. Join him as he looks back over what for the lack of a better word he still refers to as his "career" and ponders where he - and indeed all of us - might be going next.

    "A seriously talented laugh-maker, musician and satirist. Mitch Benn should be more widely known and appreciated. He’s Britain’s answer to Tom Lehrer”
    The Swindonian

    A stalwart of BBC Radio 4's Now Show for more than a decade, Mitch has also presented many radio specials. Following on from the success of Mitch Benn Is The 37th Beatle, a further three specials on music icons Bob Dylan, David Bowie and Elvis have been broadcast. He also co-presented with Harry Shearer BBC Radio 2's Anatomy Of A Guitar and presented Spank The Plank for BBC Radio 4. Most recently, in December 2016, he appeared on (and won) BBC1 television's Celebrity Mastermind!

    "Well crafted, well sung, his songs are just plain funny” The Guardian

    Mitch is the author of two novels, Terra and Terra's World both published by Gollancz and co-author with Jon Holmes of The Twitter History Of The World.

    “Ability to tackle any subject with insightful wit… It’s worth catching this consummate entertainer and skilled musician while he decides what to do next.”
    **** To Do List

    “Mitch Benn remains an optimist, despite the way the world is, and it is his mission to improve the world with words which deflate pomposity and pretence,”
    **** Scotsgay

    "A wicked sense of humour and well-crafted jokes and stories.”
    **** One4Review

    Son Yambu play authentic Cuban son, the intoxicating fusion of Spanish and African rhythms that gave rise to salsa.

    They give this irresistible music a contemporary edge, bringing their audiences a truly, sensational, authentic Latin music experience.

    "Absolutely tremendous…. if you don't start to move to this there is no hope for you! Extraordinary music." Sean Rafferty, BBC Radio 3

    Kelly Oliver is 'fabulously gifted, something special' says Chris Hawkins at BBC 6 Music and is also a 'vital voice in British Folk' according to 'Whispering' Bob Harris who has given the Hertfordshire born and based artist five of her ten BBC Radio 2 spins over the last year.

    Following up her debut album This Land, for which Kelly received a 4* review from The Telegraph, and an Emerging Excellence award from Help Musicians UK, Kelly has released second album Bedlam, which gained a recommendation and review in The Sunday Times Culture Magazine, 4* from R2 Magazine and was featured on multiple blogs. 'Blending traditional values with bold indie pop sensibility' according to The Times, with accomplished guitar technique and harmonica which is sponsored by international brand Hohner and 'distinctive and breathtaking vocals' (The Telegraph), Kelly is 'an exceptional lyricist' (Penny Black magazine) and 'an amazing songwriter' (Mike Harding).

    Dear departed Dave Swarbrick, who has performed with Kelly and added fiddle to one of the tracks on her debut album, had this to say "Kelly has the vocal skills and an exquisite voice to boot. For one so young to have such a grasp of life's travails is unusual, I like Kelly Oliver's approach to the present and the past and I predict a glittering future for her"
