Track Dogs have been barnstorming the UK with some major festival appearances and collaborations. It has been a pivotal year including playing to a heaving, rocking Trafalgar Square and surprise on-stage participation of Show of Hands’ Steve Knightley and Seth Lakeman at Shrewsbury Folk Festival. Well-established in Spain where they are based, they are surprising UK music lovers with “Sun-shiny songs thriving on dark themes behind irresistible rhythms.”The four international“madrileños” (Garrett Wall, Dave Mooney, Howard Brown & Robbie K. Jones) whose artistic name derives from the dark subterranean world of New York's subway system, present Fire On The Rails, a kicking album that grows on the work that has opened so many doors for the band. If they are still new to you, check out previous releases Kansas City Out Grooveand Uke Songs By Track Dogs and see why they are so hard to pigeonhole
Saturday 21st March
Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin have proved themselves one of the most captivating and innovative acoustic duos in the UK – winning the ‘Best Duo’ accolade at the 2014 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and being nominated for the same title again in both 2016 and 2018. The Devon duo have been making ‘world music from the West Country’ since 2010. Now known as Edgelarks they are a class act built on Henry’s much extolled musicianship, Martin’s highly original songwriting and her deep, soulful voice.
“One of the best duos on the planet”- Mike Harding
“Really sophisticated, quite brilliant.”- Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2 & 6
