Bristol Folk Festival day 2, Saturday 04 May 2019
Multi instrumentalist Amadou Diagne from Senegal, West Africa, has a style that is uniquely his own. Afrobeat to Blues, Jazz funk to Mbalax with a Rock sensibility and some of the best African percussion you will hear.
‘His musical landscape is unmistakably that of Senegal: gentle, breathy melodies over guitar rhythms that hint at restrained mbalax.’ Financial Times
Grace Petrie is a folk singer, songwriter and activist from Leicester. She first exploded onto the national protest scene in 2010 capturing perfectly the spirit of the new wave of dissent in austerity Britain.
‘A powerful new songwriting voice.’ The Guardian
Contemporary folk multi-instrumentalist Rachael Dadd spends half her time as a travelling musician in Japan, witnessing how other people create things, connecting with other cultures and landscapes.
‘Brilliantly unusual, unexpected tracks, you never know what she`s going to do next.’ Lauren Laverne, BBC 6Music
Singer, dancer and accordionist, the multi-talented Hannah James must be seen live to appreciate her percussive skills.
‘An incredible musician – a beautiful singer, inventive accordionist and her dancing is out of this world.’ Jon Boden
Mike Dennis is a classically-trained violinist whose love of Run DMC, Beastie Boys and Gangstarr led him to create a unique kind of string-heavy hip hop music he refers to as Violinica.
