Jess Vincent is a highly original artist with a growing following in the folk/indie/Americana acoustic scene. The September tour is a preview of the vibrant, new and infectiously catchy songs from soon to be released album (her fourth). This new release, recorded in her home studio in Bulgaria, brings with it a thread of the people, stories, colours, flavours and instruments from her new life there as well as Jess’s trademark subtle arrangements on guitar, baritone uke, banjo and harmonium, along with her uniquely soaring vocal. Jess will also be playing old favourites from her previous three albums.
The full band is Jess: vocals, guitar, uke, banjo; Joe Chowles: vocals, guitar; Graham Brown: percussion, keyboards harmonium; Hannah Krakiec: vocals, percussion.

Edd Donovan is a highly distinctive singer and songwriter with a rare, original talent. His sound is heartfelt – comforting, yet challenging – wise. Rooted in Indie Folk and Americana, he draws on a broad spectrum of influences and makes use of the talents of his full band, The Wandering Moles, and features meticulous, intricate arrangements, rhythmic shifts and close harmonies that recall classic artists such as The Band, Crosby, Stills and Nash and Nick Drake.
