Those who appeared (in no particular order):

Lorraine Bowen - crumbles! The terrific mistress of melody and domestic goddess is going to pop in and show us how to celebrate summer! Never mind the rain when there's rhubarb, beaches and balloons! We love her lots.

Eze Chimalio - the mysterious cosmos will be revealed in art of intrigue and breath. The trumpet brings to life other planets, inner realities. Experience yourself with universal notes drawn in the Scaledown air by your musical guide. *** Love IS Power *** Eze's book MonoMono-Banza Diaries is published on Dark Windows Press

Raf and O - Raf Mantelli and Richard Smith are Raf and O, and you, people of Scaledown, are in for a sublime mix of live electronics, acoustic instruments and fragile, magnetic, strange lullabies married to a pop spirit.

Charles Hayward - to simply run off a roll call of bands that Charles has played with would just seem a little bit crass, so we shan't, oh is Scaledown Now that interests us, and we are delighted to be hosting the immense talent that is Mr Hayward and the musical treat he shall serve up.

Keith John Adams + Matt Armstrong - The excellent Mr Adams will bring his fine array of witty ditties to scaledown on double bass by Matt Armstrong (of instrumental combo The Windsors). You lucky lucky people!

Jo Thomas - Jo Thomas is an artist of the ambient electronic variety who has just released a new album entitled Mermaids. 'A richly detailed sound world in which the listener can explore without feeling the over bearing structure of impressions or interpretation' (The Wire) 2012
