All four tracks from the EP reached the blues top ten with the international distributor CD Baby in the same week.

    Based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, JINSKI are song writer Stephen Wegrzynski and musician Dave Kennedy, a partnership forged from acoustic roots and the love of a strong melody. Their music touches the borders of folk, country, and pop, keeping alive the song writing tradition whilst remaining resolutely modern.

    Playing ‘live’ with just two voices and two guitars JINSKI have been touring the UK, honing their craft, chalking up the miles and making new friends wherever they play. They have built a reputation for delivering music for the head and the heart that is full of passion, meaning and originality. Notable supports have been to Joe Jackson, Eliza Carthy , The Proclaimers, Lindisfarne and Raintown. In October 2016 they opened two shows for Kathryn Tickell at The Brewery Arts Centre in Kendall Cumbria and The Malting in Berwick, Northumberland. Recent TV appearances include BBC 1 The One Show.

    In the last few years JINSKI have released two full studio CD albums (‘Down Here’ and ‘Hurry Home’) and a 10” vinyl only EP ‘Live Long’ all on general release through Lucky Smile Records/Proper Music Distribution. Their albums deliver memorable tunes with a cutting lyrical edge, taking the little things that matter and revealing the bigger picture. Here are songs that capture the moment, ask simple questions and offer some reflection. JINSKI tell stories capturing the mundane and the magic in everyday life.

    Guest artists have included the English accordion queen Karen Tweed, New Rope String Band member Pete Challoner (banjo and fiddle), Jez Lowe’s pipes and piano man Andy May and JINSKI stalwart Neil Harland on double bass. All their albums have been produced and recorded by Dave Maughan (who has notably worked with Kathryn Williams and Maximo Park).

    In December 2016 JINSKI released a free download track ‘Keep A Little Light On’ available for fans through their website... a little quiet contemplation after a harrowing year.

    Gary Fletcher, renowned bass player and songwriter with The Blues Band, brings his own blues roots band to The Limelight. Gary first met Blues Band guitarist Dave Kelly when they both played in a band put together by Wilgar Campbell, the ex Rory Gallagher drummer, called The Wildcats. Gary was suggested by Dave for the bass job when, together with Paul Jones & Tom McGuinesss (ex of Manfred Mann), plus ex John Mayall/Eric Clapton drummer Hughie Flint, The Blues Band first got together. The success of The Blues Band was almost instantaneous and they were soon playing to packed houses and after twenty plus albums & countless tours, The Blues Band is still going strong with Gary on bass and occasionally on guitar and vocals.

    For a number of years Gary Fletcher, when not working with The Blues Band, has performed as a solo artist and with his own band, producing several acclaimed albums.

    Gary fronts his band playing acoustic/electric guitar, banjo and mandolin producing a concoction of blues roots music which is mostly self penned and draws on traditional and contemporary music. The Gary Fletcher Band repertoire also includes some of Gary’s songs made famous by The Blues Band.

    Opening the evening will be Aylesbury’s very own folk/blues musician Steve Upstone.

    A chance meeting at their local Black Fen Folk Club in Cambridge uncovered Hannah and Ben’s shared musical passions and sympathies, that over time has developed into a unique and intimate show of American roots and English folk music.

    Huddled round a single microphone, singing intimate duets with just mountain dulcimer, dobro and guitar Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage are a folk duo that look & sound classically timeless, yet feel refreshingly unique.

    Fleetingly, they may evoke a memory of Gram & Emmylou, Shirley & Davey, or Gillian & David but their warm distilling of influences from both sides of the Atlantic produces a refined sound that is decidedly their own.

    Their unique unplugged presentation creates a widescreen, cinematic soundscape with open spaces and atmosphere, giving their beautifully pure vocals room to share the songs’ emotion and narrative.

    The material is as joyful and fun as it is intense, but the common factor is the duo’s warmth and confidence in each other; their natural ease and connection is clearly evident on the recorded music, and a genuine pleasure to witness on stage.

    British Blues Award winners Catfish have carved a reputation for themselves as an excellent live band with a phenomenal frontman in 23 year old guitarist/vocalist Matt Long who plays with a real passion for the blues. Catfish received 5 nominations in the British Blues Awards and they have reached no 1 in the IBBA Blues Airplay Charts with their two albums.

    The band crashed onto the blues scene in January 2015, with their debut album ‘So Many Roads’ going straight in at no 1 in the IBBA blues airplay charts. Their EP, a tribute to BB King called ‘When BB Sings the Blues’, charted at no 5 in February 2016.

    They received two nominations in the British Blues Awards 2015 , taking third in Emerging Artist, and followed this with three in 2016, taking first in keyboards and third in Young Artist.

    In 2017 they released their much-anticipated second album ‘Broken Man’ which is almost entirely original material. Broken Man also reached no 1 in the IBBA blues airplay charts in March 2017. This is blues with a very broad brush - from epic prog anthems to stripped back piano ballads.

    Vicki Swan & Jonny effortlessly blend traditional material with contemporary sounds. Their performances showcase new interpretations of old songs alongside original self penned tunes and new contemporary songs that are entirely at home in the tradition.

    Out of this combination they have developed a sound that is both familiar and fresh. Strong believers in letting the music tradition live and breathe through sensitive interpretation, Vicki and Jonny allow the melody to sing without any constraints.

    Be entranced by the haunting nyckelharpa, amazed at the cow horn (one of the worlds earliest communication devices) and meet some of the bagpipes that didn’t come from Scotland.

    Suitable for all ages, their evenings are packed with toe tapping tunes and songs of love, death, trains and dressing up (not always at the same time) all presented with sparkling gentle humour, lots of smiles and skillful musicianship.
