THE KETTLE GIRLS - Heather, Jenny and Ilona have been singing together in one form or another for the past 30 years, beginning with a youth singing group run by Heather with Jenny and Ilona among the members. For the past fifteen years, the Kettle Girls have sung together as a three-strong vocal harmony group with a penchant for jazz, folk, contemporary and traditional pieces. They’re an eclectic mix of everything and are influenced by noises they love, words that make them laugh, songs that break hearts and any piece that lends itself to a beautiful harmony [and sometimes a prop or two!] Facebook

MIKE GAGE - Suffolk based singer/songwriter, currently involved with 2 bands Suffolk Slappers (Rockabilly covers) and Stone Crows (original Alternative heavy rock). My solo set consists of stripped-back versions of tunes from these bands and my own acoustic solo songs, plus a few random covers from an eclectic variety of music. Some may say at the age of 54 it’s time to grow up, but when there’s music in ya blood, that’s easier said than done. Facebook

Aartwork have expanded from a duo into a full five piece Celtic groove, their tunes creating a lively, feel-good atmosphere. Aartwork play parties, festivals, ceilidhs and pubs. Facebook

PETER HEPWORTH - “Instantly identifiable, Hepworth’s beautiful, funny and sometimes painful folk songs paint colourful and personal stories, intimately portrayed through his jovial and idiosyncratic interpretation of the world around him. Inspired by legends such a Joni Mitchell, Don Mclean and Neil Young, and following that 70s ethos, Peter performs with an emotional clarity reminiscent of an early day Paul Simon.” Facebook

AIMEE IRIS - I am a bubbly acoustic singer/songwriter from Ipswich. I love writing original songs and putting my own spin on some classic hits. My favourite thing when playing a gig is audience participation so please feel free to join in and sing along. I will be performing a variety of acoustic bedroom pop and chilled out hits. If this is something you enjoy please feel free to check out my social media @aimeeirismusic. Facebook

JAMES MORGAN – James Morgan first picked up a guitar at the age of twelve, in order to become windswept and interesting to women. That didn’t really work, but he is pretty good with a six-string... Hailing from darkest Suffolk, James crafts folk songs for the modern age, with a hefty lump of punk sensibility thrown in for good measure. Not to be missed! Facebook

ADAM YOUNGMAN – Singer-songwriter from Ely, Cambridgeshire. Writing, recording and self-producing music in the indie-folk and lo-fi genres. Facebook

Billy takes influence from Catfish and The Bottlemen, Bruce Springsteen and The Kooks and brings a sweet, soulful acoustic indie sound that promises to please! In another life he was known as a bit of a wild man and his songs tell stories of all the tales he has lived and learnt without sparing the details! . Facebook

ABERRANT DABBLER - Aberrant Dabbler (Joe Moses Leggett) is a Kent-based, Suffolk-raised, alternative musician. His prime tools of choice are the mandolin and loop pedal.
