Arcelia (pronounced Ah-KELL-ia – meaning ‘treasure chest’ in old Spanish) is a soulful folk trio from the valleys of Kent. An exquisite sound which has been likened to Crosby Stills & Nash, America, Paul Simon and Squeeze (they regularly perform and tour with Chris Difford). They have also been in demand as a support act for the likes of Scott Matthews, Oysterband, Coope Boyes and Simpson, Boo Hewerdine, Michele Stodart and Maddy Prior. Following up their 2014 debut Wrap Your Bones, on their new album Building on the Land the band continues to evolve into an exceptional songwriting and performing unit, further exploring everyday life and loves.

Jo Hook
Jo Hook sings songs that will make your neck hair rise. Her soft husky voice soothes and inspires and her quirky style of songwriting is hard to attribute to any style of music other than her own. she makes you laugh, sometimes she moves you to tears. Jo is a cheeky but soulful performer, self-deprecating but underneath all the grins is a songwriter of depth, with great observations about life, love and the world as we know it.

Carmen & The Devil
Folk and country influenced rock with soul! Performing tonight as an acoustic 3 piece, Carmen & The Devil bring a fresh approach to classic rock. Red hot original songs with blues, soul and country flavours. Think...Tom Petty, The Band, Fleetwood Mac, The Rolling Stones, The Pretenders, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, George Michael…

Mark Lees . . .

Iain Spink (From Carmen & The Devil) is running the London Marathon this year for Shelter. Iain is also a Trustee for the East Kent Friends for Mental Health. The proceeds of this event will be split between the two charities.
