“Esteban call it Desert Funk, a powerful concoction of mesmerising guitar, four part harmonies, driving funk bass and high desert drums. If you witnessed one of their parties somewhere along the way, then you’ll know to leave your inhibitions at the gate. If it’s your first time… it's ON!”

The Rogue Embers

“Formed in 2016 in the thriving Derbyshire music scene, the Rogue Embers have quickly established themselves as one of the fastest up and coming bands in the area. They have honed their performances into an unmissable, foot pounding, storm of a show. Their distinctive fast paced blend of Americana/Folk Rock is fuelled by driving rhythm and powerful harmonies.”

Nastee Chapel

“Jethro Tull meets blazing bluegrass to tell a twisted tale of inequality through the veil of a nursery rhyme.”

Frankie Archer

“Her imaginative and bold mash of electro alt-trad shows Northumbrian fiddle roots, her deep love of electronic music and her immersion in soulful folk songs from the North East of England and around the world. Mark Radcliffe (BBC Radio 2) described her music as “Fascinating and Intoxicating.” 

Project Emptyhead

“Andy Cooper and Boz from Off the Tracks with Kev Treanor from Headshrinker come together to perform a special hybrid Dance set. Influences include psytrance disco rock and roots music. A sound collage of cinematic sound and driving beats.” 

Jack's Rake

“Playing mostly traditional songs & tunes plus original compositions Jack’s Rake are one of Sheffield’s favourites, with good reason. Loads of energy and crazy fiddles."

The Rye Sisters

“Local to Lincolnshire, the Rye Sisters perform a heady mix of country, Americana and transatlantic folk numbers from upbeat dancing tunes to mournful close-harmony ballads accompanied by guitar and fiddle.”

Faint Line

"Award-winning producer teams up with a singer/songwriter whose voice could melt the stoniest of hearts. Think Kate Bush, London Grammar, Portishead, The Smile, Pain, Grand pianos, RnB hi-hats, Lo-fi horror, Broken strings. On Red Lantern Records. Quite simply your new favourite band."

Christina Alden & Alex Patterson

“Christina & Alex are multi-instrumentalists and songwriters from Norwich who’s music is rich with intertwining harmony, sensitive accomplished musicianship and a creative song-writing style that is both delicate and moving.” 

The Peet Jackson Group

“An Irish/Ukrainian singer-songwriter born in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, his sound is an eclectic mix of Celtic Folk, Soul, Country, and Old Fashioned Rock n Roll. The Peet Jackson Group just adds to these songs, expanding arrangements and style for an exciting, spontaneous live show!  ‘Absolutely stunning’ - Christian Carlisle, BBC radio Sheffield”

Detta Kenzie

“Detta Kenzie is a Devon based folk singer creating original songs alongside reworking ancient Celtic music. A deep connection to the natural world is ever present in Detta’s work. References to the landscape of England’s beautiful Southwest bring a local strength to Detta’s creations.”

Satin Beige

“Satin Beige is an R&B cellist and singer-songwriter. Her music has been described as “cello infused, lyrically soulful R ‘n’ B” with “something of an Ed Sheeran and Alicia Keys lovechild vibe”. She has performed across the UK and has had her tracks spun on 6Music, 1xtra and Rinse FM.”

Wes Finch & The Silver Wye

“The Silver Wye is a band named after a moth, a river and a device for changing track. A collaborative project featuring a core of Midlands based musicians Ben Haines (drums & percussion), John Parker (double bass & electric bass) and Wes Finch (guitar and vocals).

It is a space for this group of musical friends to step a little outside of the realms of folk and Americana music into more electric, experimental and electronic places.”

Seb Stone

“Seb Stone is a traditional singer, whistle player and uilleann piper from the Peak District. In 2022 he won both the Future of Folk and Shantyman of the Year awards at Bromyard Folk Festival. Since then he has performed at a multitude of folk festivals around the country, as well as regularly playing at a variety of sessions in Sheffield.”


“RAKESTONE sing contemporary songs written by the likes of Richard Thompson, Karine Polwart, traditional songs and songs of their own broken up by high energy boot stomping Celtic tunes !!!

Basically, a band that offers a vibrant approach to the folk/roots genre.”

Barefoot & Fly

“Jazz-flavoured soul, funk, disco and rock. A 7-piece band from Sheffield and the Hope Valley with Sophie on lead vocals and a 3-piece horn section. An exciting amalgamation of all things good and groovy. Songs you've heard and some you maybe haven't. Dance, listen or both!”

The Newcranes

“With a new album out in 2024 and a history that began 30 years ago, The Newcranes deliver “crackling folk punk” that sits happily alongside pop-rock-roots numbers. A firm festival favourite, the band blends accordion, mandolin, and fiddle into a rock rhythm setting, add layered harmonies galore, and delight audiences in any setting.”
