The Meadows – Welsh Based Listen Again
are a Classically-trained Wales-based multi-instrumentalist Celtic-Classical Crossover band consisting of four siblings. Their concerts are quite a journey of sounds and textures: a combination of atmospheric, contemplative, emotional pieces along with high-energy, exhilarating folk music which gets people dancing. They have performed numerous concerts including two tours, appearances at various festivals, events and concert venues including Cardiff’s Wales Millennium Centre.

Huradal – Edinburgh – Listen Again
brings together four traditional young musicians and dancers from across Scotland in a dynamic ensemble which showcases the rhythmical links between puirt-à-beul (Gaelic mouth music) and step dance. Dancers Sophie Stephenson and Màiri Britton follow in a revival which has seen an old style of percussive step dancing reintroduced to Scotland from Cape Breton. They are joined by Mòd Gold Medallist Eilidh Munro on clàrsach and vocals, and, BBC Young Trad 2016 Finalist, Robbie Greig on fiddle and guitar.

Singer Songwriter Stuart’s music is “acoustic with a twist of folk”. Stuart currently half way through recording a cd which he hopes to have out later this year . Is well known in the local folk scene as well as round the festivals. Has a busy 2016 schedule lined up
Alan Carberry – Dundee – Listen Again
Is a 22 year old singer songwriter, currently based in Dundee. Has developed as a performer over the past two years playing original material all over Scotland, getting the opportunity to play at some small festivals such as Eden and Doune The Rabbit Hole, has also had the privilege of supporting some of my favourite Scottish singer songwriters such as Miss Irene Rose and Rachael Sermanni.
Madam Tsunami – Aberdeen – Listen Again
Originally from Auckland, New Zealand folk/pop duo Madam Tsunami have recently relocated to Aberdeen, Scotland. Husband and wife Adam Usmani (guitar/vocals) and Coralie Usmani (violin/vocals), each a successful musician in their own right, have been quietly songwriting and arranging material to perform together as a duo since moving to the UK in May 2015. The result is a blend of Adams rhythmic rock, blues and jazz approach with Coralies more melodic classical and folk influences.
