“A great writer. He expresses his lyrics with his own inimitable style really because he sings like no one else.” (Kid Jensen, The Blues Hour) Adam Giles Levy is an amalgam of acoustic bluesy goodness, apocalyptic rock bangers and cinematic dark folk, elegantly delivered to striking effect. Not shy of using his lyrics to reflect on humanity’s big questions, Adam’s emotionally charged live show has earned him the call to open for such class acts as Newton Faulkner, Noah Gundersen and William Fitzsimmons. Adam’s blues-rock heavy 2018 release, “Peninsula” (2018), was the catalyst for a year of European touring, with support for Steve Hackett (Genesis) at the Pordenone Blues Festival (Italy), the highlight. Whether writing about the power of the ocean or capturing the ephemeral beauty of a dream, Adam’s emotive songs, both dynamic and profound, ultimately led to him signing with UK independent record label, “Hillside Global” in 2020. Adam’s new single “Wild Earth”, a rallying cry for a more just and compassionate economic system, is out now. For fans of: Eddie Vedder, Robert Plant, Kaleo, Pentangle

"Seafoam Green are Irish band Dave O'Grady and Muireann McDermott Long. The pair specialise in what we now call Americana. If you want blues, gospel, and folk, they’ve got it, but what they’ve actually perfected across two albums and countless live shows is the sound of a glorious rock n’ soul revival. Seafoam Green even find room for a dash of Dublinese, just to remind people where they’re coming from. Heavy hitters like Rich Robinson, Derek Trucks, and Tyler Greenwell have all chipped in, and it’s not hard to hear why, for this is thrilling, vital, and – that word again - soulful music."

Celtic influenced music and song. Frank (harp and guitar), Paul (whistles and bodhran) and Julian (accordion, mandola and vocals) initially met several years ago at informal folk sessions. They started pinching each other’s tunes and eventually decided it was easier to play them together 😊 and found that the unusual combination of instruments actually worked. Since then they have played as an occasional trio at various gigs, their tunes and songs having a strong Scottish and Irish influence.
