Sun 11th August – Gem Andrews & Band
Americana and folk music with an honesty and rawness backed up by full harmonies, blooming fiddle melodies, piano and accordion. Gem Andrews supports all of this on a sea bed of acoustic double bass and drums. Her music is deeply rooted in alt-country that captures the energy and warmth of the North East region carrying inflections of Patsy Cline, Lucinda Williams and Kate & Anna McGarrigle.
Original bass player and lead singer with 70’s/80’s Brighton-based punk rock band The Chefs. Helen McCookerybook – John Peel favourites purvey gentle, jazz-folk melodicism, with a dark underside. Her bossa-inspired jazz lilt vocals, her glorious melodies in simple sparse arrangements are juxtaposed with subtly dissident, occasionally dark lyrics, a critically praised feature of her music.
