All the way from South Korea, SeungMin brings you a truly perfect blend of Jazz, Soul and Latin music. Sit back and let the sweetness of her voice send you into another world!
Hear her sing in this song with neo-soul band 'Wise Willis called 'Blue My Sky':
Chryssa loves any opportunity to connect with an audience. She describes herself as an avid writer of sad songs - weaving experiences of life, love and landscapes near and far into her original material. Compared to the likes of Jodi Mitchell, Lucy Rose and Laura Marling, Chryssa aims to make you feel something by the end of every performance and crafts this through poetic lyrics, catchy melodies and unique interpretations of songs you might already know. She has played various gigs and festivals across the south of the UK and is currently working on her debut EP due for release in 2022.
Great to have Chryssa back for her second appearance at the Marquee Sessions! :)
17.00: Isolated Corners
Inspired by indie kingpins such as Radiohead, Grizzly Bear and Elbow.
Artist Ed Tucker burrows into his bedroom studio to shape his blend of Indie rock with driven groove and underlying bittersweet tones. Now he is bringing his bedroom studio to Sidmouth Fringe Sessions to share his music with this special performance.
19.00: Sidmouth Drama Group presents:
'St George & The Covid' - A interlude to the music with some high drama and fun!
20.00: Craig Milverton
British jazz pianist of the year 2010. Craig was born in Bexley, Kent and took piano lessons from the ages of 7 -12, but has no formal jazz training. Craig’s main influences are Oscar Peterson and Bill Evans and his jazz interest was spawned by his fathers record collection, initially the Boogie Woogie pianists and then Oscar and Ella. Craig moved to Devon in 1985 and began gigging with local rock ‘n’ roll and jazz funk groups. From 1987 he toured regularly across the UK and Europe, including 3 Cork Jazz Festival appearances with R’n’B group Junkyard Angels.
Nowadays he's still swinging hard to crowds all over the UK. It's a real honour having one of the UK's all time jazz giants play for us here at the Fringe. Grab yourself a pint and get ready to swing your way into the evening!
21.00: James Dixon
Coming from Bude in Cornwall, James Dixon tells us stories using the medium of Blues and Folk. His performance is filled with energy but also moments of pure stillness and beauty. There is nobody better to finish this amazing day!
22.00: Special Guests finale TBA
