Fos Brothers

The FOS Brothers are Dave and Sam McCrory from East Belfast, N.Ireland, joined by Rom Dobbs an innovative drummer / percussionist from the South West of England.
Together they create a unique soundscape of acoustic music heavily influenced by their Irish roots.
"The FOS brothers have played on our stage at Glastonbury every year for the last 10 years and still pack the house with their superb musicianship and sublime vocals. I used to be a nun until I heard Sam sing - now I'm a monk!!
Take every chance that you get to see these guys - they are worth it every time"

Friend Of All The World

As their name suggests, Montreal indie-folk outfit Friend of All the World craft tunes that evoke the camaraderie of a kitchen party or the fellowship that springs up between strangers who meet on the road. Perhaps that’s because songwriter and front man, Rob Cole, employed a hitchhiker’s optimism and an ad on Craigslist to assemble the band. Friend’s 2009 debut, Up These Branches, was largely a solo effort by Cole, released in the hopes of attracting like-minded musicians with his haunting harmonies and rustic acoustic riffs.

Whole Schebang

A young band with five primary players scattered around East London making some d.i.y. folkpop music. Formed in late 2006 as a duo to explore open-mic night hotspots with guitars in hand, they have gone on to acquire a drummer, flugelhornist/flautist and bassist. What you can hear here is their recorded music to date - four collections of songs: 'A house and everything in it', 'Supermalt EP', 'Will it grow back? EP' and the latest offering 'Stranger Than The Weather'. The latter shows the band testing out their fullest sound yet and is replete with big harmonies and a string-section.
