Most widely known for being the underground independent act that topped the UK and Irish charts with The JCB song in 2005, Nizlopi have a fierce reputation for unforgettable live shows, often taking the show into the heart of the audience. John Parker (double bass/beat box) and Luke Concannon (vocals/guitar), have made folk hip-hop their own private genre and when they perform live, they are a positive force like no other.

Cocos Lovers (pronounced Co-Coss) are a distinctive musical force, seamlessly channelling influences from Africa, the US Deep South and several other real and imagined corners of the globe, while staying faithful to their Kentish roots. They have earned a reputation for fantastic live performances with an ever-changing instrumental line-up of mandolin, banjo, acoustic and electric guitars, harmonica, violin, musical saw, flute and percussion.

Fabian Holland is a remarkably fine singer, guitarist and songwriter. Following his self-titled debut Fabian began exploring new sounds with percussionist Fred Claridge to create material goes further to establish his distinctive songwriting style. “He’s not good, he’s bloody good! We can’t wait to hear more!” – Folk Radio UK
