Here is our Line-Up:
Anne-Marie Sanderson is a British singer-songwriter, recently returned to the UK after five years in America, where she released two EPs and toured up and down the west coast. Her most recent EP, Shadows & Sparks (2015), explores twin-opposite themes of light-dark, mystery-certainty, love-loss, with songs arranged for a luscious chamber-folk ensemble comprised of Sanderson on guitar and vocals, Mirabai Peart (Joanna Newsom) on violin, Anna Fritz (Portland Cello Project) on cello.
Following in the tradition of timeless singer-songwriters, her music is often compared to that of Joni Mitchell and Nick Drake, but fans and critics alike recognize that Anne-Marie Sanderson is all her own.
...like a more symphonic Laura Veirs [...] Sumptuous. - Higher Plain Music
...confessional, literary folk... delicate and powerful at once... - The Modern Folk Music of America
Born and raised in Wythe County in southwest Virginia, Sam Gleaves performs innovative mountain music with a sense of history. Under the direction of local teacher and barber Jim Lloyd, Sam took up stringband instruments as a teenager, including the banjo, guitar, fiddle, autoharp and dulcimer. With his mentor ballad singer Sheila Kay Adams, Sam found his voice and fell in love with the mountain love songs, which he carries into his generation with pride. Sam’s performances combine traditional Appalachian ballads, dance tunes, original songs and the stories that surround the music.
Matt - A
“Matt – A” is a Singer/Songwriter and Guitarist. This summer in 2017 he is embarking on his second solo UK tour, to promote his recently released album, “Hidden Light”.
Matt’s greatest passion is his solo act, although he has played with various artists, including Boy George and TIESTO. In 2013 he took part in the world famous TV Show “THE VOICE” (Israel), where he aroused the curiosity of all the judges, especially after a breath taking cover of the song “I Wanna Be Yours” by the Arctic Monkeys.
As well as countless gigs, and Radio Airplay, his ground breaking solo tour of the UK last year really put him on the music map and brought him many new fans, the highlight of which was performing at The Cambridge Rock Festival, where he wowed the audiences. He has played many other well-known venues, such as The White Elephant (Glasgow), The Drovers (Loch Lomond) and Jumpin Jacks (Newcastle).
Brand-new Alt/indie band Dosed will be performing their first Half Moon show.
