SUNJAY - From 9pm

- A massive talent and very popular at our festivals, please see his website and Facebook page for lots more information on new releases!!

Sunjay is very much the man of the moment. Not so much the flavour of the month as the
flavour of the year." – Living Tradition
You could be forgiven for thinking at first listen that Sunjay is older than his 26 years.

With a relaxed and confident manner, vocal style and mastery of his instrument he walks onto a stage and addresses the audience as though he is sitting down to play music with a group of close friends; a completely natural approach for a young man who picked up the guitar when he was just 4 years old and hasn’t put it down since.

We are delighted that we can present the multi talented Heidi Browne. See her website and facebook for lots more information.


Selected by BBC Introducing as one of 25 unsigned UK acts tipped for success back in 2013, Heidi was invited to attend a musician's masterclass at Abbey Road Studios and was met with high praise from BBC Radio 2's Tom Robinson.


In 2014 Heidi went on to beat over 9,000 competitors to win Open Mic UK winning an artist development deal.

Heidi Browne's first two albums were aired on BBC Radio1, BBC 6Music & Amazing Radio, with 'Lost in Grey' tipped a 'stand-out release' by The Musician Magazine. Heidi Browne's music ranges in genre from rootsy-pop to jazzy-folk, seasoned with reggae influences and a touch of the theatrical. Drawing inspiration from many sources, Heidi's creative flair spans into the visual arts and her illustration skills can be seen in her animated music video 'Paris'. The song was an instant hit on soundcloud, quickly reaching 100,000 plays. Thea Gilmore tweeted that 'Paris' would be the "best £1 you'll ever spend".

A self confessed devotee of 'real music', Robbie Cavanagh is not defined by genres.
The only rules are good musicians, real instruments, great microphones and performance with emotion. Capturing sound, not producing it.

Robbie performs self penned, unscrubbed tales of heartbreak, loss, love and discovery, and when he puts pen to paper, he lives by his own words. 'The more you wrestle with an idea, the more contrived it becomes'. Robbie writes with honesty, emotion, and most importantly; instinct. Though his latest record ‘To Leave/To Be Left’ has received high praise from fans and industry professionals, it's Robbie's live performance that has really turned heads and attracted much deserved attention. 

Stepping out on stage with his long hair, Levi's and Stetson, a guitar over his shoulder and a well earned confidence in his chest, Robbie can hardly open his mouth without also opening his heart. Performance is Robbie's way of channelling emotion and his passion and energy are incredibly contagious.
