Brooke Sharkey (Slot 1)

Lovely to have Brooke Sharkey back to the Fringe again.

Brooke was raised between France and England and is now currently based in Oslo. Starting her musical journey as a busker, she has since released 2 Eps and 2 full length albums and travelled extensively playing her Anglo-French soul searching, spacious and poetic songs. 

 

She produces her music and collaborates with various artists and musicians adding to her unique vocal delivery and poetic lyrics.

 

’An introspective sound adorned with emotional vocals and sliding string sections that create a tense air of melancholy that few others can master so simply and so elegantly, Brooke Sharkey oozes a creativity that radiates emotion. She is a woman who bleeds artistry' (Fresh beats)

James Dixon (Slot 2)

We are rapt to have respected Folk & Blues songwriter and guitarist James Dixon back on the Fringe stage.

James’ obvious devotion to his instruments is apparent from the first few notes - not surprising when you learn he picked up his first guitar at the age of 5!

His set is a combination of acoustic and signature cigar box, stompbox, foot tambourine and vocals creating a full band sound with lingering lyrics that resonate around your headspace.

A below-the-radar artist who is now deservedly attracting more attention being recently asked to join celebrated Blues musician Seasick Steve on his European Tour as his support act.

Celtic Social Club (Slot 4)

Cock-a-hoop we have managed to bag The Celtic Social Club for the start of their UK tour!

The Celtic Social Club are a celebrated French band with an Irish singer who have taken 'Celtic traditions from Brittany, Cornwall and Ireland and applied them to rabble-rousing rock with shades of the Clash and the Pogues.'

The CSC are big box office in France: cover stars of French Rolling Stone, they have had sold out tours and become word-of-mouth festival sensations for their modern take on Celtic music imbued with fiddle, mandolin and uilleann pipes.
