LAVINIA BLACKWALL:

Folk power pop songwriter, composer, arranger Lavinia Blackwall is well known for her previous work in Trembling Bells, who released seven albums, all met with critical acclaim. She has also worked as a performer and arranger with Nick Garrie, Kaleidoscope, Mike Heron and Bonnie Prince Billy.

Her debut album ‘Muggington Lane End’ was universally well received, earning excellent reviews from publications as diverse as Rolling Stone France, Shindig!, RnR, The Financial Times, Uncut, Moof Mag, The Scotsman, and online editions, Backseat Mafia, Spectrum Culture, and Line Of Best Fit.

Lavinia continues to work on her second solo album,  a rich tapestry of lyrical melodies and beautifully arranged song smithery ably accompanied by ‘Stilton’ the talents of Marco Rea ( The Wellgreen, Euros Childs) Jim McGoldrick (The Wellgreen) and Seb Jonsen (Helicon and The Tomorrow Syndicate).

LAURA J MARTIN:

Support from the incredible Laura J Martin, a mercurial and bewitching live performer who interweaves layers of vocals, flute, mandolin and electronics; Laura and her band have toured regularly across the UK and Europe and supported acts such as PJ Harvey, Teenage Fanclub, Cate Le Bon and performed and collaborated extensively with Euros Childs.  Consistently played and supported by BBC6 Music DJs such as Marc Riley, Cerys Matthews, Lauren Laverne, Gideon Coe and Stuart Maconie; Laura's most recent release was a collaborative project 'Wyndow' written with Lavinia Blackwall of Trembling Bells.  Currently finalising her next solo album, Laura will be playing new material and songs from her wide catalogue.

GRANFALLOON:

"Granfalloon - what's not to love about that?!" - Chris Hawkins, 6 Music
"A lovely mass of chiming chords, deadpan wordplay and a wispy psychedelic otherness." - Now Then Magazine
"Utterly enchanting" - Crack Magazine
"Alt-folk music that wouldn't sound out of place in a Wes Anderson film" - Drunken Werewolf
Richard Lomax (aka Granfalloon) first embarked on writing songs for a proposed year-long journal in 2014 – a maddening yet rewarding journey which documented the fever dream of a chaotic year in the form of fifty-two pieces of music. Almost 10 years after its initial conception Lomax is about to release Calendar – Chapter II as a collaboration with fellow songwriter Lobelia. Chapter II is the follow up to 2022’s Volume I album, taking those fifty two ramblings, ideas, half baked thoughts and overcooked dreams and turning them into what will become a triptych of albums.
