Ma Polaine's Great Decline plus Gareth Lee & Annie Baylis

Taking inspiration from the 1940's jazz of Billie, the blues grit of the Wolf, and the genre sidestepping of Waits, Ma Polaine's Great Decline create their own style of broken-down roots music; from painfully sparse bitter-sweet love songs, to fearsome tales of revenge, alongside country-soul ballads and infectious vaudevillian tango.

The concept behind the band was not predetermined, the songs are written without a requirement to stay within the boundaries of a particular genre, the lyrics cover veiled tales of love, the joys & pains of the music world, and are told with melodic invention and an emotive vocal.

Beth and Clinton performed the early gigs as a duo, placing an emphasis on writing and instinctively developing a distinctive sound for the band.

Gareth Lee & Annie Baylis are an up and coming acoustic folk duo from the South of Cornwall; they have been performing together for about 18 months and have been winning acclaim from both local and national sources including Folk Radio and Radio 2 Folk Award winners Lau.

Kezia & Harry Collier

Kezia is a singer/songwriter who’s sound drifts between folk and blues with a tinge of country. Her lyric based songs are accompanied by thoughtful melodies on the guitar and piano. Although just 22 years old, Kezia’s mature voice sings heartfelt lyrics of matters that many can relate to, conveying a certain melancholy that is heard throughout her music.

Expect a stripped back performance with only his unique and mesmerising voice and acoustic guitar, with newly penned tunes and some unusual but inspired covers. Harry started his musical career in the much-loved Cornish surf rock band Rootjoose, before he went on to sell over 250,000 albums with Kubb. During Kubb’s existence they performed on Later with Jools Holland and were invited to play on the Friday Night with Jonathan Ross Show as part of extensive touring and promotion of their critically acclaimed debut album Mother.

Melosa


"The most enjoyed headliners Budstock has seen in 20 years of rocking the Southwest. Melosa blew away the capacity Budstock festival crowd with fresh upbeat sounds which had em up and dancing like loons from start to finish. Superb entertainment"

This musical army has conquered festival crowds all over the UK fusing big fat doses of Ska and Funk with lashings of Swing, Blues and Hiphop. Throw in some infectious grooves from all over the world and you've got a massive bouncy soundthat you just can't help but dance to.
2015 is the tenth anniversary of the first Melosa gig (they played as an acoustic four piece to a packed room upstairs in the Globe pub, Exeter) so it's going to be a year of celebration with loads of gigs all over the place, a new album (new songs are being written & plans are being made as we speak!) and loads of other tenth birthday stuff!

Martha Tilston

Of her latest album  The Sea  Tilston says Ive always had it in mind to make a traditional album. Singing trad songs is what I grew up with, not just from my father (Steve Tilston) and step mother (Maggie Boyle) but also on my stepfathers side of the family with its Geordie heritage (her stepfather is Frank Whately and uncle Kevin Whately, the actor known for his iconic roles in such beloved TV series as Lewis and Morse as well as movies like The English Patient). As noted earlier (above), among the family friends of her childhood was the legendary Bert Jansch (and Martha includes Black Waterside as a nod to his influence and presence in her work). The Sea is a brand new album of traditional songs about the sea and the stories of those whose lives are intertwined with and guided by contact with it. Each song has one of the above-mentioned family members, plus brother Joe Tilston and friends, singing or playing with Martha and she says: it has been a beautiful experience. We recorded most of it in a cliff side cottage in Cornwall and enjoyed trying to capture the magic and treachery of the deep.
