Mae & The Midnight Fairground

Mae Karthauser (of Mae & The Midnight Fairground fame) boasts a collection of vibrant and shadowy songs that tell vivid stories of wayward characters both human and animal. Her rich and acrobatic voice is mingled together with the bounce of humming organ keys, the gentle slinky screams of clarinet and guitar and the sensuous swoops and slides of an old cello; and anecdotes are delivered with a distinctive twist of humour and come eccentrically woven.
The Midnight Fairground was born in 2009 concluding a degree at the late Dartington College of Arts: a multi-arts show weaving together song, dance, film and theatre. Since then Mae has performed extensively in UK, California, France, Austria, Belgium and Italy. Mae snatched “Best Busker in the Southwest” at the competition hosted by Born Hectic and won the stage at last years Glastonbury Festival. "Black Horses", the latest album was released in March 2012 and features, along with Mae, on “Little Red Bus” a circus documentary by Sebastien Montaz Rossett released in June 2013. The new solo album is set for release in spring 2014.

Martha Tilston...special Guest Ewan Mclennan

Martha Tilston has grown up immersed in music. So much so that she thinks of song
writing as the coat she wears on the journey, not the destination she is travelling to.
It has taken her to many interesting places; opening the acoustic stage at Glastonbury;
touring the far reaches of the globe; gaining a BBC nomination for best new-comer at the folk awards; recording and releasing several of her own albums, being a guest vocalist for zero 7, and meeting and playing with some of the world’s most inspiring.

Martha, now based by the sea in Cornwall, followed the many adventures and diversions along the way, -with the support and inspiration of her parents including:
father Steve Tilston (acclaimed Singer songwriter) and step mother Maggie Boyle (renowned folk singer), she ran from the London recording studios of the plastic pop scene as a girl, into the beduin tent of the ‘small world stage’.
Martha formed duo MOUSE with Nick Marshall and together they travelled the country with the solar stage, its musicians, clowns, lantern light and canvas. Mouse very quickly gained a large word of mouth following. They released a ground breaking album and had a magical couple of years discovering the underground acoustic music scene and living a lifetimes’ worth of stories to tell.

The Razorblades/Honey/The Eyelids

Germany's sharpest surfband travels around Europe since 2002. Rob Razorblade guitar Ringo/Randy bass Ralph Razorblade drums sound like Dick Dale on speed and come over you like a Tsunami wave of powerful guitars & pounding drums....

Out of the board shorts and into the black leatherjacket is the new mantra of the band. Dick Dale’s twangy guitar sounds are getting punked up by grooves reminiscent of Rancid, Agent Orange and
the Turbo ACs. Put some noisy feedback on top and you get a dark-
er, more dangerous version of the classic Razorblades sound. Sorry, no Hawaiian shirts allowed…

Rob Heron and the Tea Pad Orchestra

"Pinpoint accurate period ragtime blues"

Rob Heron and the Tea Pad Orchestra are one of the hardest working bands in the UK roots circuit, with thousands of touring miles under their belts, they have earned themselves a sizeable fan base in the UK, Europe and beyond. Based in Newcastle Upon Tyne, they play their own brand of Western Swing, Blues, Gypsy Jazz and Country, or “North Eastern Swing” as they've coined it.

Their style is more eclectic than most, influenced by early 20th century American music, with the addition of “razor-sharp” solos, great arrangements and original songs; their music harks back to a golden age whilst staying perfectly modern. The songs are penned by Rob Heron, a crazy fool for country music and a full time dandy-cowboy. His songs are full of character, satire, and good old fashion hollerin’.

The band played to their biggest audiences yet when American riverboat rag-time band, Pokey LaFarge & The South City Three invited them to open for them on their last big UK tour. Pokey has praised them as “the gem of the bunch” while comparing them to others.

Pussy Cat & The Dirty Johnsons

Put out a saucer of milk and some moonshine, 'cos Pussycat And The Dirty Johnsons are coming...

The formidable Pussycat is renowned for prowling the audience whilst the adrenaline fuelled Dirty Johnson boys pound out their infectious brand of Dirty Rock'n'Roll. Like all cats they are hard to pin down and have been described as one of the most incendiary live bands in the UK.

With the high impact raw energy of their live shows artfully captured in the studio by producer Alex McGowan, their debut studio LP 'Exercise your demons' received many great reviews, the eagerly awaited power-packed follow up LP 'Dirty Rock'n'Roll has been receiving the same accolade since it's release in February 2013, comprising 11 blistering tracks the band - now a trio after deciding not to have a bass player - have kept the new album exciting and fresh, they've also brought in double bass skills of Phil Bloomberg (The Polecats) to guest on a couple of numbers!

Formerly in a band just called The Johnsons, this Basingstoke based power-trio are fronted by Puss Johnson (origins dubious and unknown), with founding guitarist Jake (Feckle,Lube), and drummer Antz (The Krewmen). Inspirations are wide and varied for each band member but all share the same fundamental taste in music.

Their first video 'Trouble With The Devil' (directed by filmmaker Oliver Harrison) has received over 32,000 hits and the last three years has seen the band play over 150 shows, including 5 UK tours and some great festival slots. They've supported the likes of The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Thee Oh Sees, The Fuzztones, Mad Sin, The Creepshow, The Polecats, Bow Wow Wow, The Meteors, The Rezillos, The Vibrators and The Urban Voodoo Machine, as well as playing with great touring band DragSTER, Trioxin Cherry, The Dogbones, Atomic Suplex and 100% Beefcock and the Titsburster

'PREPARE TO DANCE TILL IT NEARLY DOES YOU IN'
(Alan Raw - BBC Radio Leeds)

It was a fateful night when six young musical hotshots bumped into Klezmer in a Leeds backstreet and decided to go on an epic club crawl. By the next morning the passionate and soul-stirring traditional Yiddish dance music had somehow got all mixed up with reggae, electroswing and amps that go to 11.
www.tantz.co.uk

And Tantz was born.

Tantz deliver a failsafe fusion of virtuoso instrumentalism, smart-alec arrangements and all manner of pulse-grabbing grooves that turn on a sixpence and keep you on your toes. Wailing clarinets? You got them. Soaring fiddlesticks? You bet. Footgrabbing basslines? What else! Smash’n’grab drumstuff? Check (and checkmate). Showmanship? Need you ask … Put them on a stage with room to swing a cat and the next thing you know it’s a heaving dance party that you won’t want to leave.

It takes a special kind of talent to take an old school musical idea and turn it into the Next Big Thing but that’s what they did. After a year packed with storming shows, including festivals like Bestival and Kendall Calling, it seemed inevitable when they were picked to headline the Brit Awards After Party, 2014. But that was merely a star-studded curtain raiser to what looks like being an even more successful year. If you dig klezmer you’ll love what they do to it. If you don’t - then you will.

FrenziedHyperKlezmer – it’s coming soon to a good-time near you.
