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.

Carrie Tree support Ashley Height

 'One of the most natural voices you may ever hear' - XYZ Magazine (Brighton)

Q Magazine - "There's a disarmed gentleness to Carrie's second album, incorporating the elegant meandering of Jeff Buckley and the more esoteric aspects of John Martyn and Damien Rice."

'Bjork filtered through an English folk sensibility, awash with the chilled acoustics of Elbow.' The Source/xyz magazine

 

Sussex-based Carrie Tree has an established career through Uk and Europe and has become a well known voice on the festival and acoustic scene. Carrie has toured and/or collaborated with the likes of Damien Rice, Fink, Rumer, Carly Simon and worked with Albert Mazibuko from Ladysmith Black Mambazo on her new album. She performed on the new 2000+ capacity William’s Green stage at Glastonbury Festival and appeared on Dermot O'Leary's BBC2 show with the project Lowb to 1.6 million listeners. Having just released new album 'Home to the Invisible' Carrie has been enjoying touring it across Europe, both as a solo artist and with a band.

 

With a unique voice of depth and originality, Carrie touches listeners when she plays with her heart-felt lyrics and intricate guitar melodies.

Ashley is an accomplished guitarist and singer with wide ranging influences. He is local to Falmouth and plays for the bands Lantern Quartet, Jonah's Lift and Dakadoum, as well as performing solo. He had a major release last year with his guitar instrumental 'Painkillers' and is hoping to record more over this winter with plenty of gigs to follow in the new year.

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

Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin support Georgia Lewis & Friends

Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin are one of the most exciting and innovative duos to appear on the folk/roots/acoustic scene in recent years. They have been nominated for 'Best Duo' in the 2014 BBC Folk Awards. With a rapidly expanding following and a truly unique sound that effortlessly spans many genres, the duo have been touring constantly for the past three years, winning new fans of all ages wherever they go. Festival appearances have included regular Glastonbury slots; all the major folk festivals including mainstage slots at Sidmouth Folk Week; Broadstairs; Warwick; Shrewsbury; Gate To Southwell; Shepley Spring; Priddy; and a constant presence on the greenfield festival circuit, at events such as Larmer Tree (mainstage); Sunrise Celebration (mainstage); and Green Man.

Hannah Martin is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Devon. Her songs weave folklore and legend old and new with beautiful melodies, creating haunting compositions delivered with "a bold and beautiful singing style all her own" (BBC Radio Two). Writing mainly on fiddle, viola, and banjo, and drawing on the traditions of the British Isles, she has been commended by Mike Harding for her "really fantastic singing" (4/5/11). 2012 saw Hannah selected to be part of the National Theatre's War Horse School, working with John Tams, Nancy Kerr, John Kirkpatrick and Chris Parkinson. She was also involved in The Nursery Rhyme Project for the Bristol OId Vic, co-writing and performing in a show exploring one of our oldest oral traditions.

Georgia Lewis & Friends

"The clarity of her voice and choice of material combined with her extrovert personality and stage presence is a winning formula." – Rosie Upton (Village Pump)

Georgia Lewis is an up-and-coming folk singer with a penchant for taking well-worn ballads and adding a little spice! She is joined onstage by Felix Miller (guitar) & Rowan Piggott (5-string fiddle) and together they are garnering attention on the English folk scene with their signature panache!

'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.
