Blackballed + No Quarter
Blackballed are a full tilt powerhouse with a ton of passion and style. Fusing all the best ingredients from rock, blues and psychedelic soulfulness, they conjure up an energy that once discovered wont be forgotten. Since their inception, the trio (Marshall Gill-vocals/guitar, Tom Wibberley-bass and Leon Gill-drums/vocals) have been smashing down the walls at every show. Building on an ever increasing fanbase and powering on from strength to strength. With an EP, an album, and a stack of gigs under their belt, the band returned to the studio in August 2016 to record their second album 'Fulton's Point'. Released April 2017 and available now.

With influences ranging from progressive rock to blues and soul, No Quarter have gone from strength to strength since making their debut at Linkylea Festival in 2014. Based in Edinburgh, the female fronted six piece have supported respected artists such as Jace Everett and Eilidh Mckellar since their recent emergence onto the Edinburgh scene.
Soldier On + The Hummingbirds
Soldier On are an Ayrshire Rock n Roll band, they inhabit a world where the 7″ is king. A world of Dansettes and desert boots. A world of black and white telly, half-day closing and an “‘Allo Mrs Jones, ‘ow’s your Bert’s lumbago?” over the garden wall. A world where the beat group reigns supreme, where R’n B means rhythm and blues. Forward-thinking retro-revisionists, Soldier On are unashamedly a rock ‘n roll group.
“Liverpudlian five piece traversing from vintage Beatle-esque melodies to the poetic harmonies of Ryan Adams on a visit to Nashville”
Born and bred in Liverpool, immersed in generations of the town’s fine musical heritage, The Hummingbirds have spent their debut years amassing a strong following of loyal fans who travel the length and breadth of the country to watch them play. As they roll out song after mesmerizing song, filled with three part vocal harmonies, perfectly timed rhythm guitars, love fueled lyrical content and a beautiful line up of straight faces masking their intrinsic Scouse wit, one can’t help but feel that you’re on the cusp of discovering one of Britain’s next great bands.
With a new line up and a sound edgier than ever, Safehouse are going from strength to strength. As well as wowing audiences in their native Scotland Safehouse also gig in Europe, where they have a loyal fan base. Although rooted in the Blues, their repertoire covers a mix of original material & carefully chosen covers (Traffic, Tya, Moby Grape, Little Feat, Otis Rush, Bo Diddley etc..), & showcases how they can turn their hands to playing hard hitting Rock, through Blues to full blown Psychedelia!
