Live Music : Bernard Hoskin

Bernard Hoskin is a songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist from Cambridge whose distinctive and original sound is based upon English songwriting and world music rhythms as well as the more common folk, country and blues styles. An experienced performer, he accompanies himself on 6 and 12 string guitars and mandolin playing a mixture of original and traditional songs and covers.

He has opened up for many of the big names of the folk scene including Bert Jansch, Martin Carthy, Harvey Andrews, John Renbourn and Jacqui McShee, Clive Gregson, Isaac Guillory, Andy Irvine, Phil Beer, Colvin Quarmby, Johnny Dickinson, Pete Atkin, June Tabor and the Oysterband, Dougie MacLean, Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker, Megson, Gigspanner, Henry Priestman, Greg Russell & Ciaran Algar, Carrivick Sisters, O'Hooley & Todow, Lucy Ward and the Amy Wadge Band.

He has produced eleven CDs and a Rock and Reel magazine review wrote of “his fine tradition of crafting accessible, mellow acoustic folk with occasionally well-placed African pop flavours ...reminiscent of the work of Ralph McTell, Paul Heaton, Johnny Clegg and the later work of Paul Simon.”

Live Music : Diamond Family Archive

The Diamond Family Archive are an English lo-fi, psych-folk, multi-instrumentalist duo.

Live, The Diamond Family Archive craft a mesmeric live-show from drums, acoustic guitars, lots of FX pedals, keyboards set to drone, tape delay, loops and bellows, bows, harmonicas, cosmic harps, toys and broken cymbals. All coming together to create music which holds echos of post-rock, traditional folk, spiritual soul music, psychedelic rock and lo-fi.

Foot-stomping, finger-picking, hollering vs pin-drop hush - fragile, lazy grace.

In the last year alone The Diamond Family Archive have played shows in Belgium, Germany, Holland, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.
