Mabowunje and The Family Band
These guys will be performing a set of African and Reggae songs guaranteed to move the heart and stir up the soul.

Vicki MacWinyers aka Pixievic
Vicki lives and loves in Birmingham (UK) with her son and a cat! A musician and poet she writes from the heart, as she sees it, of human experience that is instantly recognisable and although much of her work is personal, intimate even, it speaks to us all. She is a commanding performer who draws you into her physical stillness with not much more than the mesmeric quality of her velvety voice and an occasional raised eyebrow. Vicki is both extremely funny and exquisitely poignant.

Mr Wright
Mr Wright blends rhythm and rhyme, through riff based blues with a hip hop edge.’
