Ady Johnson, a London based singer songwriter, has shared the stage with the likes of Willy Mason and Ben Howard. His accomplished, finely crafted style filters the distinctly English mod tones of Ray Davies and Steve Marriot through a classic, soulful acoustic pop style. His most recent release was recorded with Mercury nominated/ BBC award winning producer Gerry Diver (Lisa Knapp, Sam Lee, Tom Robinson) and brings together the soulful delivery and intimacy of Ady’s live performances.

A favourite of BBC 6 Music in his previous musical incarnation, ‘The A Train’, James McKean and his band the Blueberry Moon specialize in splendidly epic melancholic country-soul vignettes supported by rich full band arrangements. They will be previewing songs from their forthcoming album ‘No Peace For The Wicked’.


Elly O’Keeffe stunning vocal abilities have earned her favourable comparisons with such giants as Janis Joplin and Eva Cassidy. Already a majoir success in her native Ireland, she counts the legendary Paul brady as a mentor and fan, having shared the stage with him on numerous occasions. She’s currently in London recording her second album withg producer Joe Hurst (Beth Gibbons/ Ian Brown), and briongs her deeply soulful roots style to The Glad for the first time.

‘Elly O’Keeffe- earthy, passionate, and deeply real in a world of musical confetti’ Paul Brady.
