Those who performed for you (in no particular order):

Fiona Sally Miller - a swift return for this charming troubadour who will be pedalling to great effect her wonderful musical wares, including tracks from her soon to be released 10" EP on Vacilando '68 Recordings.

Beeching's Axe - An improvised train-wreck of archive steam railway sound recordings and live electrified guitars, attempting to reflect aspects of a pivotal moment in British transport history. Featuring Kevin Younger and Mark Braby.

Roshi featuring Pars Radio - Iranian/Welsh Roshi returns with her beautiful mix of exotic electronica, folk and the ethereal.

Jude Cowan Jude returns to Scaledown with her inimitable take on the week via Reuters and song.
