About The Artists
Rosie Eade Band
Rosie (“Folk-Pixie”) Eade Ban is a Female Fronted Folk-Rock with 3/4 size classical guitar.
Rosie plays lively and evocative life inspired songs written over a number of years gigging around the country, interspersed with carefully chosen traditional gems, all arranged around her love of folk, rock and thrashing her old nylon strung guitar.
“One of the loveliest new voices on the folk and acoustic music scene” (Village Pump Folk Club, 2013)
Equally at home within the folk, rock and acoustic genres, Rosie plays at folk-clubs, pubs and festivals throughout the country; recent years have included Glastonbury’s Avalon Cafe, Beautiful Days, Wimborne, Rochester Sweeps and Bearded Theory. Likened to the voices of Kate Bush, Maddy Prior and Grace Slick, yet inspired by The Who as much as Steeleye Span, she has supported the likes of the Oysterband, Julie Fowlis, Nick Harper, Martin Carthy & Dave Swarbrick, Dave Pegg & PJ Wright, and Holly Golightly, to high acclaim.
“Sprightly and pleasing blend of contemporary singer-songwriter and folk stylings.” Rock-n-Reel, 2013.
“Rosie’s voice ranges from fairy-like frailty to rich, rounded and rocky – she’s equally at home empathising with gentle lyrics or punching out a potent folk rock vibe.” FolkWords, 2012.

Jon & Alfie
Jon & Alfie are practising multi-instrumentalist folk musicians emanating from Cornwall. They arrange both original material and traditional folk tunes from all over the world with a distinctive and unique style.
Jon’s mischievously jazzy and adventurous flute and whistle melodies sit playfully atop the darkly sparkling thrum of Alfie’s guitar and various stringed instruments. Their arrangements are rhythmically charged, at once foot-stamping and unpredictable and their sound is experimental in its subtle questioning of folk music idioms. Their performance is guaranteed to put a twitch in your face and a grin on your toes!
