Serious Sam Barrett – the highly acclaimed Leeds based singer, guitarist and songwriter – plays honest, heartfelt self penned and traditional songs on 12 string guitar and banjo. Sam’s latest album ‘Where The White Roses Grow’ is full of fine songs of that conjure up the spirit of Yorkshire and beyond.

His vocal resonates with vitality and at times, an inner longing. Bryony Hegarty

Henry Parker plays with an intricate finger-picking style that brings to mind the late 60’s folk, psych and progressive rock scenes, with influence drawn from the likes of Bert Jansch, Nick Drake, Pentangle and Fairport Convention. His songwriting lyrically entwines landscapes, people and politics with roots that run deep into the traditional folk songs of England.

His latest album – Silent Spring – is garnering great reviews and showcases the range of Henry’s talent.
