Hosted by Alex Vellis

Maggie Spokenword - Poet:
Maggie's heartfelt and passionate performances about love, lust and heartbreak get pulses beating a little faster, tears flowing in empathy, and laughter forcing itself out from deep inside us as we recognise our own personal experiences of love and loss reflected through her stories.

William Thomas - Musician:
William has been performing round the UK for the last year and along the way has been writing his own material. Taking influences from artists such as Van Morrison, Ray Lamontagne and Foy Vance, William has a unique style of warm vocals over strong guitar melodies. At the end of last year he went into the studio with Dan Lucas of Anchorbaby Recording Company and produced a new 4 track EP “Come The Autumn” with the help of friend and fellow musician Luke Jackson and was released in February 2017."

Neelam Saredia - Poet:
A spoken word poet who writes about gender, culture, and sexuality. She is currently the Chocolate Café’s feature poet in residence, and collaborates with illustrators and musicians to create multi art form pieces. Performing makes her feel taller than the 5 ft 1.5 inches that she is.

Phoebe Warden - Musician:
Phoebe’s songwriting skills show a level of maturity that belies her young age. Her lyrics are often raw and painfully honest, and her lilting voice captivates audiences. She is a versatile performer, making full use of her self-taught guitar, harmonica and piano skills to craft music with a range of styles and tempos. After heading Stateside in 2015 playing gigs around Chicago, Nashville and New Orleans, Phoebe spent 2016 gigging and playing a host of festivals including the prestigious Glastonbury festival. 2017 looks to be just as busy with the release of her new single 'The Girl' in January

Henry F Maddicott Spoken Word - Poet:
A live wire spoken word artist who has been performing across the Uk and America for the last three years. His influences draw upon hip hop, story telling and his time spent in different places.

Gentlemen of Few - Musicians
BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Finalists, Gentlemen of Few, play an eclectic blend of old-time bluegrass and classic rock with skillful vocal harmonies and powerful lyrics perform their music with a raw passion and intense energy hardly to be believed, giving them an almighty sound that they've coined as "Nugrass".

A band with five years experience of performing their shows to a plethora of welcoming audiences and dedicated fans across the UK in rooms and halls of both homeliness and esteem. The Royal Albert Hall, London; The Leas Cliff Hall, Folkestone and The Forum, Tunbridge Wells to name a few, but the boys have found themselves at Tiree Music Festival 2014/15, Scotland; Secret Garden Party 2014, Cambridgeshire; Boomtown Fair 2014/15, Hampton and even supporting the likes of "The Blockheads", "The Beat" and "Hayseed Dixie"! 

"Fusing an old time bluegrass sound with a youthful English vigour, impeccable harmonies and song craft way beyond their years. Mighty impressive." - Smugglers Records

“So young yet so amazing” - Chris Evans, Radio 2

“Incredible live sound” - BBC Radio Kent
