Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Lee Southall brings a wealth of experience to his solo acoustic performance. As a founder member of eclectic Liverpool band The Coral, he’s already enjoyed a career that spans seven albums; a Mercury Prize nomination and a Music Producers Guild album of the year. His solo work hinges on finely crafted songwriting and virtuoso acoustic ability. Folk, pop, blues and country thread their way through songs that move from the melodic intricacy of Bert Jansch or Davey Graham, through to the raw sparseness of Karen Dalton or Townes Van Zandt. Currently residing on the West Yorkshire moors, Lee’s recently supported the likes of Blue Rose Code, Ryley Walker and Laura Marling at venues across the North.

A firm favourite of the New Roots Sessions, Jack Harris was a South by Southwest showcasing artist at 17. He was the first international act to win the New Folk songwriting competition at The Kerrville Folk Festival, Texas- previous winners include Steve Earle, Lyle Lovett, Gillian Welch and Devon Sproule.. A virtuosic guitar player and wonderfully authentic folk singer and songwriter, he has shared the stage with everyone from Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick to Anais Mitchell and Jeffrey Foucault.
