Support on the night comes from the mighty Shy Boy, a melodic 4-piece indie delight who take Owen Hackett’s wonderfully memorable songs to new heights with soaring harmonies and dynamic extremes.
Opening the night, and recently long-listed for the Glastonbury Emerging competition, are the superb Lucas & King: Lucas and King are a truly exciting new young duo emerging from Brighton. Songs of exceptional craft and depth pull influence from classic folk and American roots flavours, delivered with the spine-tingling, unforgettable voice of Bo Lucas and perfectly judged guitar accompaniment from Hayleigh King.
