    Award winning singer/songwriter Chris Cleverley is renowned for his ability to draw audiences to the edge of their seats with hauntingly delivered tales of ghost women, lonesome clock towers, lovelorn mariners and hospital beds.

    Chris’ critically acclaimed debut album ‘Apparitions’ sailed into The Telegraph’s top 70 folk albums of 2015, while the national music press championed his unique song-writing and fingerstyle guitar techniques. Acoustic Guitar Magazine have hailed him as one to watch out for and the likes of fRoots, R2 and Folk Radio UK celebrate the raw, and at times unsettling honesty of his lyricism.

    The contemporary style of his songwriting is grounded in the traditions and techniques of those who came before with clear influences from folk heavyweights like Martin Simpson, Nic Jones and Bert Jansch, while his arrangements of British and American traditional music reflect a strong affinity with the genre.

    Since winning Bristol Folk Festival’s 2014 ‘Isambard Folk Award’, Chris’ national presence has grown exponentially, bringing his dynamic solo live sound to sell-out dates across the UK and over to the Continent too.

    Sarah McQuaid’s voice has been likened to malt whiskey, melted chocolate and “honey poured into wine” (Minor 7th). Her new album Walking Into White (2015) is her most honest and adventurous work to date, with a depth and texture of soundscape that are reflected in her beautifully crafted live shows.

    A captivating performer, she seduces her audience with cheeky banter and stories from the road, as well as with stunning musicianship; in her hands, the guitar becomes much more than merely an accompanying instrument.

    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"
