Steve Jinski is a solo artist, musician, singer, songwriter, performer and music educator who champions musically inclusive practise. He believes passionately in music as a form of expression, engagement, enjoyment and education, and admires the songwriting skills of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Elvis Costello, Kate Bush, Stevie Wonder, and Nick Cave. He and guitarist Dave Kennedy make up the acoustic duo Jinski, with whom he has toured widely in the UK, including an appearance on BBC’s The One Show. However, this evening Steve will be appearing solo.
His solo EP ‘Hope Street’ was released in Autumn 2020.

Kimberley Rew & Lee Cave-Berry
Kim and Lee are a songwriting, recording, singing, guitar and bass playing and gigging (usually plus a drummer) husband and wife team, from Cambridge, England. Kim and Lee have a considerable pedigree with local bands Jack, the Barefoot Doctors and the ever -rocking Wednesday Session.
Kimberley Rew’s history includes Robyn Hitchcock and the Soft Boys (whose album Underwater Moonlight will be found in the history books), Katrina and the Waves (whose Rew-penned “Walking on Sunshine” will also be found in the history books) and the Eurovision-Song-Contest-winning “Love Shine a Light” (these people have a lot of history books). To which Lee can add adventures with Mal Gray, Martin Newell, the Soft Boys, Fourth Labyrinth and Lexie Green.
Both Kim and Lee have recorded band and solo albums before, but 2019’s “Enjoy the Rest of Your Day” is the duo’s first collaborative collection of original material as Kim and Lee. It’s short on convenient stylistic labels such alternative, psychedelia, powerpop, glam, new wave, old wave etc, but abundant in universality, positivity, variety and across the board appeal to youngsters and oldsters of all ages, times and places, and general joy. And cats.
Lynne Heraud and Pat Turner
Individually, and in combination with a variety of well-known singers and bands, Lynne and Pat have both served long apprenticeships on the shop-floor of folk music.
Lynne sang in a duo with Sue Ashby; performed with John Lambert and Frank Lee as Tom, Dick and Harriet; and has made a CD, 'Stars in My Crown' with Keith Kendrick. She was, for many years, the organiser and MC for the Hoddesdon Folk Club. Pat toured for six years with the folk band Filigree, making an album and also releasing a single! She was co-founder and MC of the City Folk Club in London.
Together they later joined Pete Cunningham (ex-English Tapestry and Heritage) to form Brandis, making several radio appearances. They finally settled into a permanent duo and made their first CD, 'Parallel', in 2003, and have since made five more on the Wildgoose label.
Between them they play guitar, recorder, English concertina and a variety of whistles (including swanee, policeman's and referee's), list a spoons workshop in their hall of fame, and are not in the least averse to dressing up or dancing when a song requires it. They both agree, however, that their voices are their most important instruments. Their resulting style is a unique blend of stunning song and harmony, and a humour which takes their audience on a roller-coaster ride - "everything from high tragedy to ingenious smut in glorious vocal harmony!”
