February’s Faction is on, bought to you by BBC introducing, Rough Trade and Y Not Festival.
Here’s the line-up:
Kelly Oliver is a singer-songwriter, guitarist and harmonicist from the heart of Hertfordshire. Influenced mainly by contemporary folk, Kelly brings a beautiful voice to the folk landscape. She won Folkword’s ‘Best Album by a Female Artist’ with her stunning 2014 ‘This Land’ and we’re lucky to have her opening proceedings.
The Golden Troubadours are a dreamlike acoustic band from Nottingham who write unique soulful songs with shades of flamenco, folk, soul and blues performed with passion and feeling, which leave the heart-strings lovingly played.
Nottingham’s own Crosa are a three-piece alternative band, inspirsed by 60’s surf psychedelic. They released their ‘Pantophobia’ EP in the summer of last year and continue to go from strength to strength, tearing up the BBC Introducing stage a part at Reading & Leeds and Selling Out the Bodega just last month. It might get loud.
Sheffield’s two-piece fuzzy indie/punk, Nai Harvest, have already caused quite a stir with the release of their brilliant debut album ‘Hairball’ in the early part of 2015. Since then the band have played and sold out across the country. Playing with JAWS, Best Friends, Slaves and Drenge, to name but a few. They’re here on a whole heap of headline shows on their Spring Tour, and we are lucky to have them.
Doors open at 3pm, it’s free entry and open to all ages.
