The brilliant Stick In The Wheel are fROOTS Magazine’s Editor’s Choice Album of 2014 winners, Radio 2 2015 Folk Award double-nomineesBest New Act/,Best Traditional Song, and are favourites of Tom Robinson on 6Music andXFM‘s Jon Kennedy, having recently recorded sessions for both. Featuring Ian Carter on dobro, singers Nicola Kearey and Fran Foote, plus Si Foote on Percussion and Ellie Wilson on fiddle, they specialise in distinctly London-centric, rarely heard traditional British folk songs. Their repertoire includes pieces up to 400 years old, and they seamlessly combine this deep link to the past with their own compositions. Their music is sparklingly original, fiercely fresh and fearless in it’s attitude- they’re a breath of fresh air, definitey not to be missed.

Jack Sharp is the singer and guitarist with psych folk-rock band Wolf People. In his years with the band, he has developed a keen side interest in finding, singing and interpreting folk songs from his home of Bedfordshire, inspired by the music of Nic Jones, Lal Waterson and Peter Bellamy.

Folk troubadour Nigel of Bermondsey is head of the ‘South East London Folklore Society’, a group dedicated to London folklore and the esoteric. It inspired his musical gazetteer of London- ‘Gemini City’. The album contains scenes of mild terror, foul history, supernatural fairytales and heartbreaking pathos. Recent performances include the Southbank Centre, the Globe Theatre, and Cecil Sharp House.
