Friday 7 July 

Ali Horn
Ali Horn is a Liverpool based singer, songwriter and producer. Originally hailing from London he found himself, from a very young age with an appetite for music that couldn’t easily be quelled. He burrowed into the corners of any working studio that would let him hang around and set about working on his own music. He quickly caught the attention of rooftop records and funnel music with which he released his debut singles and an E.P. in 2019 gaining valuable fans in Liz Kershaw at BBC6 Music with her dubbing his single Dreamers her track of the year. Since then Ali has released his debut full album Balcony Boys in 2021 to critical acclaim with a follow up planned for this year.

Tenements is the solo project of Liverpool psyche folk rock artist Matt Reekie, currently recording his first album with the help of some friends, songs with great melodies and unexpected twists and turns, and stories.

Clara Day
Clara Day is a psych-folk artist based in Chester who has performed her carefully crafted, horror inspired tunes at various venues across the
North WestHer sound has been described as having “dreamy, hypnotic melodies” with “intimate and haunting lyrics and a sensual sparseness”.  Her first two singles, The Ritual and The Harvest, have been played on BBC Introducing as well as various other radio stations. For fans of Vashti Bunyan, Mazzy Star, Donovan and Fairport Convention.


Sunday 16 July

Butterfly Moon
Butterfly Moon radiate passion and energy in their acoustic sets with soulful harmonised vocals and intricate guitar playing. The last year has seen them perform in magical fireside slots and main stages at festivals including Timberfest, Just So Festival, Pantfest, FEAST and Napton Cidery. Ash and Gareth lead a life of adventure, travel and narrowboating which infuses into the sound of their original music and playful covers. As freelance performers and theatre practitioners, Butterfly Moon bring life and storytelling to their music and a welcoming feel to their performances.

Mondegreen are a Widnes born indie folk trio. Comprising sisters Laura and Leanne Griffiths and childhood best friend Claire Smith. Formed through a mutual love of First Aid Kit and Laura Marling the band has been described as lush, harmony drenched pastoral folk suitable to soundtrack hazy summer nights and lazy Autumnal afternoons.
