Winning three accolades at the 2014 Liverpool Musicians' Awards, Thom's music has been featured on 6music and been described as "powerful and addictive" by veteran music journalist and editor Paul Du Noyer (formerly editor of NME and Q, and the founding-editor of Mojo and Word magazines). Thom is currently working on (and crowdfunding) the release of his first full length album at Elevator Recording Studios with Tom Roach (Queen Zee, Robert Vincent).thommorecroft.comThom is currently crowdfunding the release of his first full-length album 'The Feng Shui & The Sushi' directly from his website at thommorecroft.com/shop----------------------------------------------------------------Southbound Attic BandThe Southbound Attic Band consists of Barry Jones, guitarist, singer-songwriter, and Ronnie Clark, bass and backing vocals. Their high energy live set is a combination of Americana, English and Celtic tinged folk rock.https://southboundatticband.com----------------------------------------------------------------Caitlin GilliganYoung Scottish singer-songwriter Caitlin Gilligan grew up in rural Galloway, now based in Manchester, her songs still echo the wild empty spaces of her childhood. Her influences include artists such as Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Nick Drake as well as more contemporary artists such as The Tallest Man On Earth and Laura Marling. Mixing old folk songs into sets of clear-throated and poetically-crafted originals, she demonstrates refreshing insight; whilst simultaneously summoning the ghosts of the 1960’s Greenwich village. Although still a fresh-face on the folk scene, she has already managed to secure support slots for artists such as The Rails, Rachel Sermanni and Ewan McLennan.http://caitlingilligan.co.uk----------------------------------------------------------------Earlybird tickets are only £4.00 (20 available, cut-off 10th April)
