Gordie Mackeeman & His Rhythm Boys

Hailing from Prince Edward Island, the award-winning Gordie MacKeeman and his Rhythm Boys serve up old-time roots music and Western Swing with an energy level that practically yanks you out of your seat by the collar. If ever someone was deserving of the nickname "Crazy Legs", it just might be fiddler Gordie MacKeeman.

Jeremy Hardy

Jeremy Hardy is in his 4th decade as a stand-up this year. That’s a more dramatic way of saying he started 32 years ago and, without a lottery win, probably has at least another 32 years to go. In 2014, the tenth series of Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation was broadcast on Radio 4.

Martyn Joseph

Martyn Joseph is as performer like no other.
He's a jaw dropping guitar player who has developed a unique percussive style, teamed up with a powerful show stopping voice, and has been called “The Welsh Springsteen”, but there are also shades of John Mayer, Bruce Cockburn and Dave Matthews there may be – but he stands in his own right, built on a reputation for giving what thousands have described as the best live music experience of their lives.

Joe Brown

Joe Brown MBE is unique, a genuine one off. With a history that spans music hall, skiffle, Rock ‘N’ Roll, Theatre, Films, TV, Radio and even Circus (his Grandfather performed with Buffalo Bill), there aren’t many that can claim such an entertaining background. He is one the very few to have successfully traversed the years and the genres and still be contemporary.
