Ed Harcourt was born in the seventies ("the year punk broke, days before The King was dead"), and lived with his parents in East Sussex. Over the years, he has become a well-read, well-dressed, well-travelled English gent and a songwriter of some repute.
Of his six albums to date, one was Mercury nominated and the rest have picked up an array of blush-inducing plaudits from the music press. He’s composed film scores, toured with the likes of REM, Wilco and Snow Patrol, performed with everyone from Patti Smith to Nick Cave, and his CV is littered with co-writing credits that include the likes of Paloma Faith and Lisa-Marie Presley.
Teleman – 'Tele', from the Greek for 'distance' – are a band you're invited to, not inundated with. Their sparse, welcoming minimalist synth tones, gentle motorik beats and balloon-light melodies seeped quietly onto the radio last year and hypnotized the alt-pop nation.
Having brought last year to a close by touring with Suede, the quartet will support Franz Ferdinand, Metronomy and Maximo Park at upcoming shows this Spring before they head out on their own headline tour.
The Drystones are a young (18) lively folk duo from Priddy in Somerset playing violin, guitar and whistle, who have made a big splash since they formed in July 11 and within four months they won the 2011 Mid Somerset Battle of The Bands. They have played festivals all over the West Country (including Glastonbury, Sidmouth, Village Pump, Bromyard, Purbeck and The Sunrise) where they engage audiences with a maturity beyond their years. They have played on the Radio 4 Today programme and even a National Geographic Fishing programme (its a long story!).
Compared to Tom Petty, The War On Drugs and The Gaslight Anthem, Carousels and Limousines perform catchy, vintage rock n' roll with irresistible riffs.
The mini festival will be kicking off from 12pm and finishing at 6pm
