Walking Wounded

Walking Wounded are a 5 piece band from East London playing a wide variety of original material from Rock to Arabic, Reggae to Balkan, Celtic to Ska and more…
They feature accordion, guitar, harmonica, bass, percussion and harmony vocals.
Don’t be fooled – despite their eclecticism the Wounded retain their distinctive sound that makes them instantly recognizable and the band rock with an energy that many an electric band would envy. The band were one of the winners of the 2004 Glastonbury unsigned bands competition and one of The Guardian’s ‘Best of the rest’ at Glastonbury 2004.

Craig Harris

When Craig Harris exploded onto the jazz scene in 1976, he brought the entire history of the jazz trombone with him. From the growling gutbucket intensity of early New Orleans music through the refined, articulate improvisation of the modern era set forth by J.J. Johnson, and into the confrontational expressionism of the '60s avant-garde, Craig handled the total vernacular the way a skilled orator utilizes the spoken word.

Kodō (鼓童) is one of the elite taiko drumming groups today. Based in Sado Island, Japan, they have been a major force in the post-World War II revitalization of taiko drumming, both in Japan and abroad. They regularly tour Japan and the United States. Although the main focus of the performance is taiko drumming, other traditional Japanese musical instruments such as fue and shamisen make an appearance on stage as do traditional dance and vocal performance.
