January Line Up: 

Kirsty Macleod: Tightly melodic songs draw on universal themes of love and separation. Ranging from the hauntingly lyrical to punchy, anthemic ballads, they stay with the listener long after the doors have closed. Kirsty, whose voice has been likened variously to Eva Cassidy and Amy Macdonald, lists Thea Gilmore, Richard Walters and William Fitzsimmons amongst her influences, but she also draws inspiration from her roots in the Scottish Highlands and her love of the Kent countryside. https://www.facebook.com/kirstymacleodmusic/   , https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xJTkWDyrcks

Fred Clark: An acoustic singer/songwriter from Maidstone, Kent. He performs with incredible energy and writes with an emotive, vibrant style mixing pop, folk and surfy vibes to create a truly exciting sound. The last 9 years have seen Fred play over 600 gigs including at Maidstone Hazlitt Theatre, Maidstone Pizza Express, Chatham Central Theatre, South of England Show, Kent County Show and many more pubs, churches, theatres, festivals, weddings, care homes and other events. Since 2009 Fred has released 6 albums , the latest of which, ‘Eternal Sun’ showcases an emotive, catchy array of original songs. Each release has been produced in his home studio and made with love and passion for the music.  

Fred takes inspiration from musicians such as Ben Howard, P!nk, Newton Faulkner, Ed Sheeran, Robbie Williams and blends many sounds to create truly wonderful songs. With lyrics showcasing a huge amount of emotion from personal experiences it is easy to relate to so much of his music. With a path set out in front of him of continued musical exploration and a focus set firmly on gigging as much as possible, the months and years ahead are sure to hold an great deal of memories waiting to be made.

Funke and the Two Tone Baby is a one man sonic explosion. Uncategorized and uncharted.
Jammed halfway between frenzied alt-blues and metronomic dance beats. Combining guitar and harmonica with beatboxing and effects that seamlessly collide the organic with the mechanical to create a fresh sound of unstoppable rhythm and unrelenting melody. From supporting Skinny Lister, Beans on Toast, Hayseed Dixie and Mercury Prize nominees The Comet is Coming to a 40 date festival tour this summer, including standout shows at Beautiful Days, Bearded Theory and Hungary's Sziget Festival, Funke has quickly becoming a must-see act on the festival and touring circuit.
