TOM MCCONVILLE 

Tom McConville:  A virtuoso musician and fantastic singer, his rich and warm voice makes his interpretation of traditional and contemporary songs greatly admired by singers throughout the world.

In great demand as a performer, session musician and teacher; playing the fiddle is his lifelong passion and he has achieved every player’s dream of creating his own unique, instantly recognizable sound.

His live performances combine a rollercoaster of musical delights from fast, rhythmic dance tunes , through beautiful slow airs and of course, great singing. All presented with his inimitable sense of humour and style.

CHAPIN-WICKWAR

Chapin-Wickwar are an acoustic duo from the west of Cumbria. Both singer-songwriters in their own right, Sue and Lisa met at the end of 2013 and realised there was great potential in their combination of guitar styles and natural vocal harmony. With this new found synergy, the two decided to get out and about performing together and the Chapin-Wickwar duo was born.

In their first year together, Sue and Lisa had performed in excess of 100 gigs, had their original songs aired on BBC Radio Cumbria, Radio Portsmouth, Heart Radio and produced two EPs.

The duo's style has been described as Folk/Americana. Their musical partnership has been described as compelling, their music exquisitely dynamic and their songs intricate, gorgeously crafted and beautifully executed. Their debut album, 'If...' was released in April 2015 and presents a collection of 11 original, evocative songs. An album truly from the heart.

DAN WEBSTER

Dan Webster is a seasoned English singer-songwriter, his music is influenced by sounds and story telling traditions of American and British Folk music (in it’s broadest sense), Americana and Rock and Roll. Americana UK described him as ‘A Hybrid of Damien Rice, Seth Lakeman and Tom McRae’.

Dan has played too many shows to count over the years. Live, Dan inspires attention; pulling you into his work with finely crafted melodies and lyrics - delivered with a powerful, and honest vocal.

His previous album release DIAMOND LAND received a number of plays on BBC Radio 2 and was well received critically in the press. His 2012 single release Frank Dalton was nominated for Fatea magazines track of the year.
 
His new self produced release for 2015 THE TIN MAN is the pinnacle of his work to date.  It explores folk, country and rock and roll across the album fusing these styles throughout the body of the work. Webster’s delivery sits perfectly within English folk and American styles through rock and roll to Country/Americana and beyond.
