The line-up...

Tim Jon Brophy - Only starting out in 2014, Tim Jon Brophy is a singer-songwriter from Higham Ferrers, still fuelled with memories of teenage angst and anger. Performing heartfelt songs from his youth and bearing his soul in public - still seeking his absolution. As well as his original songs, Tim has some interesting covers (from Otis Redding to Culture Club, from Crowded House to Sheryl Crow).

The Tallest Hogarth - Acoustic rock, grunge, folk and original songs. If a young Elvis wrote and performed his own songs then this would be a good starting point to describe Irthlingborough-based singer-songwriter The Tallest Hogarth, delivering a powerful mix of covers (from The Doors to Gloria Gaynor, from The Clash to The Levellers) and his own songs too.

A Dangerous Liaison - this Wellingborough trio play acoustic covers of punk /new wave classics, with the odd choon from other genres/eras. "It's all about the vibe and having fun." Their covers include Stranglers No More Heroes and Eddie and the Hot Rods Do Anything You Wanna Do.

Paul Strummer - Live-looped electro-acoustic dance-punk rock n r&b/soul singer-songwriter from Wellingborough, with two albums of original songs on iTunes, now performed with a live looping setup, live looping drum, bass and guitar for more of a band sound from one person. Paul's sets include his own songs as well as unexpected covers (from Pink Floyd to Pharrell Williams, from Earth Wind & Fire to Emeli Sande).

To mix things up further, these acts will be getting together throughout the day to perform some one-off jams in either duo or trio form, to make Saturday an afternoon of solo acts, duo acts, and even "Three Amigos" acts! Or more!
