Sarah Gillespie - Sarah Gillespie was born in London to an American mother and British father. She grew up in Norfolk, England – interspersed with numerous trips to Minnesota, where she soaked in the sounds of Bessie Smith, Bob Dylan, Cole Porter and early blues and jazz. From the age of 4, Sarah composed songs on piano, and then at 15 began playing guitar. At 18, she moved to the USA, busking in the streets and playing gigs.
On returning to London whilst supporting The Blockheads at Ronnie Scotts on e night ,Sarah met the saxophonist and composer Gilad Atzmon and Gilad went on to produce Sarah's critically acclaimed debut album Stalking Juliet (Egea). Sarah has since performed live on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour, played festivals, jazz clubs, venues and Arts Centers across Britain and toured in Europe.
Described by Rock'n'Reel as 'a bracingly eclectic mix of Beat poetry with jazz, folk and Middle Eastern elements' Sarah's music is a sonic reflection of the contemporary London street, a melting-pot mix of urban-folk stamped with her trademark lyricism that knits everyday banter with raw poetry.
Shadrack Tye - South London based, they are all members of the same family, each with many years professional experience. Since the Summer of 2010 they have been playing at venues in London and the south west, in both duo and trio line-up, to great acclaim from audiences and promoters alike.
The line-up consists of Tina Longford (vocals, violin, recorder and percussion), Sam Robson (guitar and vocals) and Paul Robson (violin, mandolin, English concertina and vocals)
Their combined talents produce a vibrant approach encompassing the bands' eclectic musical tastes. They blend skill and finesse with punchy rhythmic riffs and innovative harmonies resulting in a fresh and sometimes quirky approach to their chosen material - mostly folk songs and traditional material but also early music, modern songs of different genre and anything else they fancy putting their personal stamp on!
