Friday 28th September

Those who delighted by performing (in no particular order):

Joey Herzfeld - post-apoplectic musical doings from Joey, at long last promoting his Orchestra Pit Recordings album release 'Other People's Pain'. there will be a special Q&A with Joey after his performance where you will have the opportunity to harangue him at the bar and buy him a drink.

Stuart Turner - dredged up once more from the Medway Delta, is about time we welcomed back the blues-infused vocal scorch of Mr Turner, stripping things back especially for our lovely Scaledown audience.

Roshi feat. Pars Radio - is always a pleasure to welcome back Roshi + Mr Dids, who have already enjoyed such an incredible musical year both collectively and individually that is difficult to know where to start, but maybe the forthcoming single "Don't Breathe It To A Soul but Amarilly Is Getting Gay With A Dude" says enough?

Jude Cowan - what news? Jude, do tell...

TCH - TCH is Timothy C Holehouse is Tim Holehouse. The same but different. Tim is a folk/blues troubadour but his alter ego, Timothy C, AKA TCH, will be along tonight to aim some ambient drones at ya.

Bows & Bellows - Bow and Bellows play accordion, violin, baritone horn, sopranino recorder and foot percussion and they sing. A stunningly versatile duo, they play and sing their own compelling arrangements of Balkan and Klezmer music with occasional sorties to savour the musical traditions of other countries. Strawberry & Cream - Two double bass players scaling down to ukelele and bass ukelele! And all because the scaledown boys asked them to scaledown.
