The Askew Sisters

Great folk duo of sisters Emily and Hazel, performing English tunes and songs ('Lord Bateman', 'The Bonny Bows of London Town') on fiddle and melodeon, producing a sound that's as robust as it can be spine-tingling, with Hazel's high, clear vocal underpinned by long melancholy drones interspersed with some dynamic jigs and reels.

Jim Causley

Five times BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominee Jim Causley is a singer/musician who is passionate about traditional song and particularly that of his native West Country. He became involved with traditional music from a young age via his family, the local folk scene and an historical tradition of wassailing in his home village of Whimple, East Devon. Jim has become reknowned for natural gift for interpreting traditional song, his deep, rich voice which belies his years and his relaxed and playful stage presence.

Keith Kendrick & Sylvia Needham

Keith and Sylvia sing mainly English traditional and traditionally influenced contemporary songs and work extensively all over the UK, Europe and beyond. Both have a very wide ranging repertoire, strong voices and uncannily compatible and complimentary styles of delivery, affording an exciting enhancement in duo and between them produce a striking acapella harmony sound. With a formidable history of performing experience behind them, their recorded work is matched only by their live gigs which are always a vocal and musical revelation as well as a hoot! They also frequently accompany themselves and play lively dance tunes on three different systems of the only English invented musical instrument the Concertina. And when they're not doing that you'll probably find them playing lively and stirring music for the Winster Morris Dancers.

Len Graham

County Antrim born, Len Graham has been a full-time professional traditional singer since 1982. After he won the All Ireland Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann traditional singing competion in 1971 his reputation began to spread, and at the same time his own passion for the songs of his native Ulster was growing. From the early 1960s Len sought out and recorded older singers such as Eddie Butcher and Joe Holmes.

Over the years, Len has collaborated and worked with numerous musicians, poets and storytellers. His association with the late John Campbell brought storytelling and song to a world audience. Their work together over twenty years made a significant contribution toward creating a deeper cross-community understanding of shared cultural traditions during many years of conflict in the north of Ireland.
