Kaya Burgess

Kaya Burgess is a British singer-songwriter whose brushstroke lyricism combines with a folk-rock-n-roll sound to create a compelling image of life, literature and London town. "A lovely voice." ----- Guy Garvey, lead-singer of Elbow "I can't put my finger on it, but i like it a lot and it's very personal and unique. It's got this old, worn feel to it, like a historic city after the lights go out and only a few dim pubs are still open, a handful of patrons inside drinking up the last dregs of the day. In other words, it's brilliant." ----- Tortoise Crossing

Steve Tilston

Steve was born in Liverpool and raised in Birmingham. Tilston was a graphic designer before taking up music in 1971. In the early eighties he ran a folk club with Bert Jansch in New Kings Road, London. "In For A Penny - In For A Pound" was a rock album, but he soon reverted to quieter music. In 1985 he has toured with Ballet Rambert. It was his skill as a guitarist and mandolin player, not as a dancer, that brought this about. In 1987 he formed his own record label, called "Run River". He was a member of John Renbourn's group "Ship of Fools" (1988), who released one album on his label.

Bert Jansch

Herbert Jansch (b. 3rd November 1943), commonly known as Bert Jansch, is a Scottish folk musician and founding member of the band Pentangle. He was born in Glasgow and, particularly in his early career, was sometimes characterised as a British Bob Dylan. This, however, was misleading, in that Jansch's best work has always been fundamentally instrument-driven unlike Dylan's, which is primarily lyric-based.
