Jack Harris’s songs take a compassionate look at things both common and uncommon, and see them differently. They are literate, curious, often in character, and always intriguing. His latest album, ‘The Wide Afternoon’, produced by UK folk giant Gerry Diver (Sam Lee, Lisa Knapp, Tom Robinson), was released in November 2016 to universal press acclaim. Jack was a SXSW showcasing artist at 17, and the youngest ever winner of the Kerrville Folk Festival‘s New Folk Award in 2005 (previous winners include Gillian Welch, Devon Sproule and Anais Mitchell). He has been the recipient of the PRS ATOM award for new music creation, as well as an EFDSS creative bursary for songwriting.
Originally hailing from the North Yorkshire Moors, singer-songwriter Elaine Palmer’s distinguished career has seen her share stages with Ryan Adams, KT Tunstall, Paolo Nutini, Joanna Newsom, Jessica Hoop and David Gray amongst many other distinguished artists. After seeing her in concert, Inspiral Carpets’ Clint Boon invited Elaine to record at his home studio, culminating in the recording of her debut album, Into the Spotlight. She has released a further three albums since to widespread press and radio acclaim, with her current album ‘Still Life’ reaching the Indie Top 10 and garnering extensive US and UK airplay
