Hark Hark with Coope, Simpson, Fraser and Freya will offer their "Sublime singing, supremely joyful, glorious sound" (Michael Morpergo) and you will hear a mix of old and new. With a firm foundation of traditional polyphonic Yorkshire and Derbyshire carols this show is augmented by spicy instrumentals showing the link between carols, dance and accompanied song.

Pete Morton's shows are dynamic and thought provoking while remaining approachable and fun loving. He sings from the heart, songs that tell compelling stories and speak of the human condition from a unique perspective.

The Newcastle-based Rachel Hamer Band is one of those young bands that has arrived on the scene thoroughly assured and confident with a well-defined musical identity.

Gavin Davenport is a bold, distinctive vocalist and skilful multi-instrumentalist while Tom Kitching stands at the leading edge of the folk scene as a fiddler.

Barry Goodman, one of the best callers on the ceilidh scene calls for The Old Swan Bandwho are an 8 piece band with a driving fiddle section that is enhanced by keyboards and percussion plus bass sax, trombone and tenor sax.
