Gig 16th July – Tom Baxter & Michelle Nadia

Headlining..the legend that is… Tom Baxter  tombaxter This is so exciting. Tom ranks amongst my favourite artists and has generously stepped in to take the Headline spot on Saturday. After gathering broad critical and public acclaim for his first two albums – “Feather & Stone” and “Skybound” – Tom took time out to rediscover his passion for the guitar and love of song-writing. He writes, plays and sings with a power, clarity and extraordinary delivery. His songs inspired by Rumi, life, love and loss have  been played  extensively across the world, not least all over Radio One and Two …used in films and TV…and at six foot something, he’s a hunk of a man…sadly girls, he’s spoken for, but you can still swoon your night way whilst he serenades you. 

Support comes from Michelle Nadia michelle-nadia..Beautiful… just gorgeous!’ – Graham Norton, BBC Radio 2 ..’It’s a lovely record’ – Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2 ..’She’s rather good’ – Robert Elms, BBC London

2nd July – Speak Brother & Cheryl Hillier

I’m soooo excited…Speak Brother
speakbrotheriiii are coming to Chesham,  folk/indie mix Mumford and sons with Cold play. You will have heard their music (try this)even if you are not yet familiar with their name. Vulnerable, honest, ethereal, they’ve been compared to AthleteBen Howardand The Swell Season, and their self-titled debut EP earned them airplay across the UK and beyond.

Mentioned at the 2014 International Songwriters’ Competition There are lush vocal harmonies over their rustic instrumentation, with heartfelt lyrical storytelling, driving melodies and passionate performance, They are such a band to watch.

They’ve captured the imagination of large festival audiences, and come to us directly having appeared at a major festival in the midlands and have received  a huge amount of airplay by Radio 2 with follow up live sessions booked.

Support comes from Cheryl Hiller who is standing in for  Sylva Kay  who returns in September
