HEADLINE ACT: THE FRAMPTON SISTERS
Freddie and Charlie Frampton, born, raised and home educated on the Orkney Isles, have always had a love for music. From a young age they began performing with their parents in their family band and have continued on as a duo, developing their songs and performing around the country. Charlie is now studying musical theatre at The Brit School, Freddie focuses her time on songwriting and they both play a large range of musical instruments. In February 2018 they reached the final 10 of the BBC Young Folk Awards and were able to join other young musicians for a weekend in the Lake District. They are currently in the process of recording their songs to produce their first album and hope to release that some time in the near future.

KELLY STANLEY
Described as ‘Spellbinding’; Kelly Stanley is not your average singer/songwriter. Her powerful, emotive voice and honest lyrics combine to create an artist who is uniquely endearing. Performing Kent and beyond since the young age of 11, Kelly has spent years honing her skills, playing a variety of venues and appearing in the press and on national television. Now regularly performing alongside Joe Millgate on Double Bass and occasional guest musicians, the music has reached a new level; with subtle details and powerful emotional drive. Through a catalogue of sincere and heartfelt songs exploring the human condition, Kelly bares all and is an artist you truly must see live.

THE PAUL DUNTON ORCHESTRA
Singer-songwriter, Paul Dunton leads his own unique cross-over orchestra providing an atmospheric fusion of alternative and pop with a classical twist. Paul & his Orchestra take influences from varying modern day artists such as Pink Floyd, Elbow, ELO, Turin Brakes, Massive Attack, Damien Rice and contemporary composers such as Samuel Barber, Ludovico Einaudi, John Barry and Hans Zimmerman. The Orchestra performs Paul's own compositions and a varied selection of uniquely arranged standards from a wide range of artists. The line-up of 8 violins, 4 cellos, guitar, flute, bass and percussion accompanies Paul on vocals and piano, joined by his lead vocalists, Charlotte Andrew and Poppy Raine. Paul and his Orchestra regularly perform at concerts, festivals and private events throughout the UK and internationally, including headlining the Theatrium Wilhelmstraße Festival in Wiesbaden, Germany and an 8 state tour of the USA which culminated in a spectacular roof-top performance on top of the New York Strand Hotel. Increased attention and success led to the orchestra being featured on BBC Radio 2 by Joan Armatrading with interviews and airplay of one of Paul's songs, 'Don't Forget'. This led to Paul supporting Joan Armatrading on five occasions during her recent UK tours.
