12 Dead In Everett: Playing syndicate-folk, anarcho-Americana and old time rebel songs - music to fan the flames of discontent and tell the Boss to go to hell. Guitar, banjo, accordion, and sweet harmonies of reason in a world deaf to exploitation. All members or fellow travellers of the anarcho-syndicalist IWW Union ('The Wobblies').
Andy Whitehouse (The Silver Darlings): Solo set from The Silver Darlings' singer/guitarist. A varied collection playing the songs of downbeat romantics, helpless optimists, wandering forth glass in hand...

Paul Pearson: Affectionately known as the Steel Town Troubadour, Paul, from Sheffield, specializes in taking songs from excellent but obscure songwriters and turning them into PP Originals.
Break a Leg! (Chris Rust & Karen Hisom): Playing a mixture of folk, jazz and blues songs, chosen for their emotional and narrative qualities and the opportunity for voice, clarinet and guitar to work together.

Vinna Bee: Alt contemporary folk: A solo, a collective, a duo, a band, a project... But mostly the single visions of Sian Vinna Bevan helped out by various members of her musical collective.
