Andy Cutting is a rarity. A musician's musician (BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Winner Best Musician 2009 and 2011): a soulful and technically outstanding melodeon practitioner with an ear for a fine tune. Many of his tunes have been purloined along the way: some considered contemporary classics on the folk scene. But then, Andy is also a warm and emotive performer, modestly engaging his audiences with his self-deprecating wit and then flooring them with downright staggering musicianship.

Gavin Davenport's bold, distinctive vocals, multi-instrumental skills wrapped around a unique percussive guitar style and a knack for stark, contemporary songwriting unite the best of the oral tradition with a modern relevance. He is a winner of the John Birmingham cup for newly composed song and as a member of the Albion Band was nominated for Songlines and Fatea awards in 2013 as well as winning a Spiral Earth award.

Forged from the voices of Hannah James (Kerfuffle, duo with Sam Sweeney), Hazel Askew (The Askew Sisters, The Artisans) and Rowan Rheingans (Fidola), Lady Maisery explore vocal harmony to breathtaking effect, through their fresh interpretations of songs and ballads. The trio burst onto the scene in summer 2011 and their live performances during the festival season created a real buzz. They were nominated for the Horizon Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2012 and for Best Debut at the 2012 Spiral Awards.
