David Kitt,

Having spent the last year on the road with David Gray, David Kitt is now touring his own solo show performing many of his much loved and well known songs along with eagerly awaited new material ahead of the launch of his seventh solo album later this year. 
The stunningly talented Margie Lewis will also take to the stage throughout the electric set, as the talented pair belt out some old, new and borrowed classics.

Our Kryton Son,

Chris McConaghy, aka Our Krypton Son, first cut his first musical teeth with psychobilly art-rockers Red Organ Serpent Sound. Having graduated unscathed from those rambunctious ranks, Chris established his song writing credentials as an acoustic solo act sharing stages with David Kitt, Gemma Hayes, Jape and Cashier No. 9 around the Irish club circuit.

Gathering plaudits as a writer of note, Chris gathered close musician friends together in early 2010 to create Our Krypton Son and record a debut album of the same name. His sophomore album, Fleas and Diamond's, has been nominated for the NI Music Prize 2017.

Ports & Joshua Burnside

Ports

Four piece Derry band Ports  -  Steven McCool (Bass and Vocals), Mark O’Doherty (Drums), Ryan Griffiths (Guitar) and Conor Mason (Piano) rose to prominence in Ireland after an exciting performance at ‘Other Voices’.
After the release of their first demo ‘I’d Let You Win’, the band received a flood of fantastic reviews including; ‘Flavour of the Month’ and ‘Ones to Watch’ from BBC Introducing which resulted in extensive airplay from BBC Radio 1, RTE and countless others. 
Their debut album, ‘The Devil’s A Songbird’, was released in 2016 to rave reviews and has seen the band's reputation as an unmissable live band grow across Europe, USA and Australia. 

Joshua Burnside

Joshua Burnside is something of a regional anomaly. With a brooding, powerful sound echoing artists of places afar and time long gone, his enthralling craft defies local comparison in striving towards an aesthetic as much as visual as it is sonic. Recorded at home in Lisbane, Co. Down, his new single ‘Black Dog Sin’ is the current distillation of his increasingly unmistakable approach; a fragile, yet ultimately commanding, chamber folk sound gloriously underpinned with unique zeal.
