12:30-13:30 Ellisha Green

Colourful, positive, human. West Midlands based singer/songwriter, Ellisha Green is intent on making a musical career for herself. She focuses on intricate lyrical content as well as developing delicate accompaniments to support it. Her modest attitude appears shy but don’t be fooled. With strong vocals and dynamics, she can obtain the attention of an audience in a second. From her inability to speak when she was young to playing in Nashville, she has grown into a mature young artist who is only at the start of her journey.

 

14:00-15:00 Garrington. T Jones

Garrington T. Jones is an accomplished instrumentalist, vocalist and harmonica player from Worcestershire. Described by the BBC as a “Purveyor of New Tradition Blues”, this lover of acoustic Blues, Folk & Roots music has to date, clocked up 126 live performances in the UK and Australia since June 2016.

“A masterful performance of New Tradition Blues that will leave you wishing you’d discovered Mr Jones years ago”

– BBC HW Introducing

 

15:30-17:00 Snazzback

Snazzback began as a busking band in late 2016 and have built a reputation for high-energy parties on the streets of Bristol. They approach afro-funk, psych-jazz and hip-hop with a free improv sensibility and in the past year have been exploring a darker, more electronic sound palette with new saxophonist Dave Sanders. Their most recent groove driven jazz collaboration with singer/songwriter China Bowls draws influence from the likes of Christian Scott, Portico Quartet, Jordan Rakei and J Dilla. Their new album ‘Hedge’ will be released in June.

 

17:30-18:30 The Brass Funkeys

The Brass Funkeys draw from the traditions of New Orleans with skilled musicianship, rolling from spirited second line revelry to soulful jazz funeral marches and pumping brass driven funk. Reggae, DnB, gypsy, swing and Latin influences are exposed in an eclectic live show revealing a band bursting at the seams with ideas and infectious energy.
