Sunjay is one of the UK’s brightest young stars and is gaining critical acclaim from the national press and his peers,

His latest album, his fourth, Black & Blues, was released in November 2015.

“Quite a few of these songs I have been singing & playing since I was about 5 years old. My dad taught me Buddy Holly songs when I first started playing guitar. Pretty soon I realized that finger-picking the guitar looked much better than strumming. That was my introduction to the blues, although I don’t think I would have been able to define ‘Blues music’ at the time. There was something about that kind of music that intrigued me. It’s funny to look back now and to realize that I knew very little about the content of the song!”

In 2014-15 Sunjay continued to build upon his reputation as a great performer and a rising star, with two headline tours across the UK and continued critical acclaim for his third album "Sunjay".
He has had the opportunity to share the stage with some of the industries’ finest supporting Steeleye Span, Passenger, Chris Smither and most recently Show of Hands at Abbotsbury.

After a sold out tour with Sarah Darling and Jenn Bostic as part of Nashville In the Round in September 2016, Kyshona Armstrong returns to the UK.

Originally from South Carolina, Kyshona has been resident in Nashville since 2014. Her songwriting skills and powerful, emotional voice are demonstrated on her latest two albums 'Go' and 'The Ride'. We encourage you to check out Kyshona's songs and voice to understand the buzz that followed her last visit to the UK.

Kyshona was recently named one of the Top 5 Roots Artists to watch by CMT Edge (country music television) been featured on NPR's "World Cafe Live" and network television shows "Conviction" and "Criminal Minds".


Hope In High Water are a duo from Milton Keynes, UK whose distinctly British take on acoustic Americana has captivated audiences across the UK since early 2014. The pair incorporate folk, blues and country into their compositions, delivering what Rock’n’Reel Magazine describe as ‘exuberant songs performed with passion and intensity’. Inspired by the LPs of Johnny Cash, Tom Waits, Townes Van Zandt and Howlin’ Wolf – Hope In High Water seek to reinterpret American sounds of the 20th century for 21st century Britain.
