Here are just some of our top picks for the weekend
Brit Nominee Beth regularly appears on stage with some giants of the music world including Burt Bacharach at the Electric Proms and has recently been on a year-long tour with Jools Holland which has seen her both performing as part of Jools’ ensemble and as opening act on some of his key dates. Fans of BBC's 'Strike' will have already fallen in love with her title music for the series 'I walk beside you'. Find out More HERE
Cecil has just scored her Festival stripes by recently opening at Henley Festival for legendary female artist, Grace Jones. You'll also see her performing at the likes of The Royal Henley Regatta, o2 Academy, London and even Ronnie Scott's. More HERE
Harp and A Monkey
With an instrumental line up as eclectic as their lyrics, Harp & A Monkey combine curious beats with kooky british folk. Their harp ‘n’ banjo driven electro-folk-storytelling is imbued with a deep Lancashire sensibility that shines through in their beautifully crafted and sometimes spooky vignettes of northern life, love and remembrance.

Laura has enjoyed live dates at some of the UK’s most prestigious festivals and stages including C2C: Country 2 Country and BluesFest at the 02 Arena. We're delighted to have Laura back for a second year as her debut at Eroica Britannia in 2017 was hailed as one of the 'stand out performances'. More HERE
A tweeded troubadour and purveyor of delicately energetic pop for music-loving cyclists everywhere join him to sing dance and swing and ask him why the Prince of Wales has just booked him! Read more HERE
