Brooks Williams & Aaron Catlow

Brooks Williams & Aaron Catlow bring soaring Trans-Atlantic melodies and bluesy-folk brilliance to the time-honoured guitar and fiddle tradition. These two are masters of their respective instruments.

This inspired pairing has been gathering praise from the likes of "Songlines", "Folk Radio UK" and "Penny Black Music" among others, and delighting audiences from festivals like Ely, Middlewich, Raunds and venues like Stoller Hall and The Atkinson, who stated their concert was "one of the best nights ever."

Cambridge UK-based, Georgia US-born, Brooks Williams has a long-standing solo career in both North America and the UK and is also known for his adventurous collaborations with the likes of Dan Walsh, Sloan Wainwright, Boo Hewerdine and Rab Noakes, among others. He is named one of WUMB-FM Boston's Top 100 All-Time Artists. Fatea refers to him as “one of those select few 'how on earth does he do it?!' artists."

Aaron Catlow is a master violinist and half of the Bristol-based duo Hawes And Catlow, with guitarist-singer Kit Hawes. He is also the fiddler in UK festival favourite Sheelanagig. Catlow's other credits including playing with Grammy Award-nominated Yola, Mad Dog Mcrea and Afro Celt Sound System.

The Riproaring Success

The Riproaring Success

The Rip Roaring Success are the hottest Western Swing Band East of El Paso featuring Wild Miss Lucille on double bass, Miss Jay tearing it up with some smokin' hot fiddle and the token gent, the one and only Rusty on six strings of flamin' geetar and hillbilly vox. Folk at venues and festivals up and down the country will testify that when you want the prairie set on fire with jumpin' ho-down tunes then there ain't no success like a rip roarin' one.

Vera van Heeringen & Dave Luke

It's unusual to find someone who's as good a songwriter as an instrumentalist. Vera van Heeringen is that person. Firmly rooted in transatlantic traditions, her original contemporary Folk/Americana music showcases both these skills: Poignant, emotionally astute songwriting and firebrand instrumental virtuosity. In September 2019, Vera released her third album, Won’t be Broken, which got rave reviews and has been described by the press as her best one yet.

A compelling performer, Vera conveys an easy warmth on stage. Her live performances are intimate, understated affairs, allowing the music to speak for itself. Stripped back, potent, and full of groove.

Vera will be joined by her long-standing musical partner Dave Luke on mandolin, guitar. Dave has been the backbone of many hard-working country bands and toured extensively with Nashville singer songwriter Gail Davies, playing venues like the Grand Ole Opry.
