Tuesday 8 August
Sessions commence 7.15pm (approx)
Fly Yeti Fly are acoustic duo Lorna Somerville and Darren Fisher. Blending sensitive vocal harmonies with intricate guitar arrangements, mandolin and harmonica, they have a natural and free-spirited sound, and a warm engaging personality to their music that draws others into their world, telling tales of love, loss and living off the land.
With a musical style that has been described as ‘dream-folk’, their melodic songs echo influences from 1960s folk musicians, modern Americana and their home in the South-West of England.
…Fly yeti Fly are a seriously incredible duo… just stunning…”

With the voice of an angel and intricate harp plucking - we were bowled over by the beautiful music of young singer-harpist Anna McLuckie.
Having grown up in Edinburgh, Anna now studies vocals at The Royal Northern College of Music. Influenced by alternative folk and indie rock music, her sound has been described as hauntingly beautiful and utterly captivating.
Anna has teamed up with bassist and drummer - and for the Fringe - a string section which we are really looking forward to.

Probably the nearest thing to heaven you’ll find this summer are enchanting London trio Paradisia and we are delighted they are joining us this summer.
Causing a stir in the music press recently with the release of their debut album ‘Sound of Freedom’ - these three longtime friends create the most gorgeous sound together - combining delicate vibrato lead vocals, blissful harmonies, piano and lavish harp strings to create an intoxicating mixture that is absolutely heaven sent…
“A 70s influenced sound that is both enchanting and haunting. These gals have 'next big thing' written all over them” BEAT
Echo Town are two earthy bros from up north who have now made their home in Cornwall - they went down a storm with the Fringe audience back in 2015 so we are delighted to welcome back to the barn!
Although there is just two of them don’t be fooled! With bluesy lap-slide guitar, rootsy harmonica, primal didgeridoo and infectious percussive rhythms they create a tremendous sound that seems to rise up from mother earth! A great finale act to get the barn rockin’.
We're back on it for Tuesday night starting with the harmonies and intricate guitars of Fly Yeti Fly, the hauntingly beautiful music of Anna McLuckie, the blissful harmonies of the Paradisia and with the earthy rhythms of Echo Town to finish.
Arrive in good time - with fantastic music right from the start!
