Looking forward to Bromsgrove 2013

who is going?


Martyn Joseph – Comparisons have been made with many other singer/songwriters of world acclaim but Martyn stands in his own right, built on a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives – Friday night

Whapweasel – at the forefront of contemporary English roots music weaving colourful strands of folk, rock, ska and Eastern European sounds into a wonderful melee that will leave no toe untapped. Prepare for a hoe-down – Saturday night

Mick Ryan & Paul Downes - Mick is well known on the scene as a fine writer and singer of traditional & original songs - probably most underrated singer in the country. Paul has a sensitive, yet fun approach to live performance which puts him among the most respected musicians on the music scene today. Together? Pure Synergy – Saturday night

Lucy Ward – One woman dynamo Lucy must have played about every folk club on the circuit over the last couple of years or so since she first popped into Bromsgrove. In that time she has also won an Horizon Award, released a best selling CD, toured the Netherlands, represented English Folk Music at Celtic Connections and been the guest of the EFDSS at The International Folk Alliance in Canada. Friday night

Luke Jackson - This 18 year old roots singer/songwriter from Kent was this year nominated for both the Horizon Award and the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award. His debut album More Than Boys was produced by Martyn Joseph and launched to wide acclaim last year. Luke is a confident and captivating performer demonstrating an astonishing maturity. He has a bold, show stopping voice and honed guitar skills. A great future lies ahead of him. Friday night

Anthony John Clarke – Nothing really needs to be said about this fine singer/songwriter who has won the hearts and minds of just about everybody at every venue he has ever played - especially Bromsgrove. An inimitable talent and a great friend. Saturday/Sunday

Bram Taylor – another great friend of Bromsgrove, Bram is probably the best interpreter of song on the scene today. He'll be spending the weekend with us and popping up all over the place – All weekend

Skyland - Elly Beurskens and Bruno van Hoek play their music, straight, clean and simple – from the heart - using their voices and the stringed instruments that are so typical for old-time country and bluegrass: banjo, dobro, mandolin, guitar and Elly's bass. Fine harmonies complete this talented couple's appeal. Friday/Saturday

MumboJumbo - Oliver Carpenter, Abby Brant and Chris Lomas – aka Mumbo-Jumbo – deliver eclectic, acoustic close harmony, piano based music, intimate and entertaining interaction with audiences and bring the fun back into live performance. Saturday night

Tosh Ewin - Tosh has served a long apprenticeship in pubs and clubs doing rock gigs, cabaret and generally having fun make this accomplished vocalist, front-man and entertainer who likes nothing more than to get his audience involved in all aspects of his performance, a must for any festival. All weekend

Dave Gibb - Hailing from the village of Wanlockhead in Dumfries and Galloway Dave describes himself as a left-handed, balding, middle-aged songwriting folky from Scotland's highest village. A superb guitarist with a style that is as distinctive as it is effective, a voice that can carry traditional and contemporary songs and a songwriting ability that produces songs ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous, he is an established performer throughout the acoustic/folk club, festival and concert scene – Saturday/Sunday

Nothing To Prove - Guinness, hard work and attention to detail has resulted in the band becoming firm favourites at local clubs and festivals. They have developed a well-crafted and individual take to traditional, contemporary and self-penned songs. They have developed the happy knack of judging what their audience wants and then supplying it with both barrels - Saturday afternoon (but you will feel their presence all weekend!)

Fairfield – Bromsgrove Folk Club's resident band has undergone many transformations over the years and none more so than in the last twelve months. The sadly departing John Connor, our loss being Devon's gain, has been replaced by two younger members in the persons of Luke Smith (guitar, mandolin, banjo) and Lewis Jones (mandolin, melodeon) However, the sound and the repertoire may change but the philosophy of the band goes on…if we like it we sing it and we'll have fun in the process All weekend
