Friday 26th October

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

Pete Evans - Another from the 'welcome return' department, Mr Evans charmed you all with his acerbic wit and nifty picking in May this year. May he play again? He may.

Me and Deboe -Double acoustic guitar assault, Mercy Elise and Sarah Deboe play with ferocity and urgent rhythm. Come here. Come hear.

Matthew Lee Knowles - The composer, artist and experimentalist decontextualises Jude's collection of poetry 'For the Messengers'. Tonight, friends, we are going to join his audio spectacle as avant-garde participant artists, but in a comfy way.

Krillit - Krillit is a coming together of Alison Blunt (UK) and Juun (AT), hailing from diverse backgrounds and creating a musical interchange drawing on the freedom offered by improvisation via violin, 'pianoguts', zither and hammered dulcimer. The listener is invited to float in a microcosmos, the energy of which oscillates between fragile and finely chiselled sounds.

Miss Roberts And The Rude Mechanicals - The mysterious and ethereal Miss Roberts along with her Rude Mechanicals is a whirling dervish of strange songs, sounds and looks...exploring many a musical dark nook and mysterious cranny.

Nigel Burch - what's that you say? bring back the Burch. why of course, dangling his ditties before your very eyes the master of bile returns to tell you 'orrible lot a few home truths (he's a teddy bear really).
