Tom says that he’s still relatively new to live performances, but you’ll be hooked on his laid-back style and conscious song writing. Just great
Cosmo is the guita-pickin' son of a lapsed Hungarian baron and a disinherited Scottish noblewoman allegedly descended from William the Conqueror. We love him
Susan Raven
Susan’s spiritual song writing combined with her driving 12 string guitar really is a joy to behold. Highly recommended
Brian Copsey, Tommy Mills and George Jackson line up with a fine selection of original songs. Intricate guitar, soulful bass and tight rhythms – quite simply a must-see

Just a man called james who does his bit for queen and country by serenading
passers by with sweet tunes of lost love and.. people drowning.

Acoustica organiser and songsmith Craig will be doing…something. Though he’s not exactly sure what yet. Wait and see…
Harry’s powerful performances have already knocked the socks clean off audiences nationwide, and he’s been a huge part of Acoustica since we started in 2005

She is a very special new addition to the line-up. Definitely one not to miss.
A unique mix of infectious dance rhythms & memorable tunes, real music that is fun & uplifting.

Its all about the lyrics with Dumb Instrument and these are enriched with simple yet poignant accompaniment from piano, fiddle and bass.
Nat Jenkins plays with a band called 'The Delmars'. Together they have had many adventures....

He has a reggae style to his acoustic vibes and lyrical content that speaks volumes about the unbalanced nature of modern living, here lies a man who knows there are greater things to sing about than boy meets girl.
Its all there in the music, the country, bluegrass and pop of Jeb's early years, the rebel music of punk and reggae, one connecting to the other, all of them intersecting and crossing over.
