After receiving an expensive MFA from Columbia University, Mishka Shubaly promptly quit writing to play music. He lived out of a Toyota minivan for a year, touring nonstop, and has shared the stage with artists like The Strokes, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The Decemberists among others. A narrative published in NYPress about his romance with an opiate marked his return to writing.
His three Kindle Singles for Amazon have all been bestsellers. He writes true stories about drink, drugs, disasters, desire, deception and their aftermath. His work has been praised for its grit, humor, fearlessness and heart. 'The Long Run,' his mini-memoir detailing his transformation from alcoholic drug abuser to sober ultrarunner is one of the best-selling Kindle Singles to date.
Mishka Shubaly lives in Brooklyn where he writes music and plays bass for Freshkills. He is at work on a new solo record of his original songs and a full-length memoir. He does not own a dog but he thinks about them often.

"Brilliant - love this sound! If you want a bit of early summer, then get this in your ear-holes!" Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music
TwoManTing was formed in 2004, when Jon Lewis and Jah-man Aggrey were working together in world/dance band Le Cod Afrique, performing at the likes of WOMAD, Montreux Jazz Festival and Glastonbury.
Since then, the duo has been performing regularly throughout the UK, and particularly on the Festival circuit. Festie shows have included Glastonbury, the Secret Garden Party, Musicport, Green Man, Whychwood, Ely Folk Festival, Big Green Gathering, Off the Tracks, Sunrise Celebration, Broadstairs Folk Week, Small World, Waveform, Nozstock, Bearded Theory....to name but a few.
2011 saw the release of the duo's acclaimed album "Legacy", much featured on BBC Radio 3 and BBC 6 Music, and in 2012, Jon and Jah played at over 30 UK festivals, and 100 gigs up and down the country.
2013 - The new EP "Ar Lek U" features 3 brand new tracks, and a re-working of an old favourite, inpired by the beaches of Freetown and honed in the muddy, sunny fields of England.

SUMMER IS HERE SO LET’S PARTY!! x
Originally from Byron Bay (where Whiskers’ owners Nik and JG met!) Mapstone will be bringing their heart roots music, spreading the vibrations of love, joy and abundance to all corners of the Earth.
Now it doesn't get much sweeter than that : )
Implausibly mastering the playing of two instruments at once and putting the rest of us to shame. Make no mistake, this is no novelty act. Rather he manages to combine an almost piano-like capacity, focusing each of his hands on either melodic or rhythmic, percussive duties and the results are mesmerising. Vocally comparable to Jeff Buckley and Simon & Garfunkel.
SO FUN TO WATCH and so mesmerising to listen to. DON’T MISS THIS!

Taken my breath away

Sam's percussive, acoustic slide guitar style, combined with stomp box, loop station and harmonica, have served as the foundation; on which he has built a strong reputation as a live act with universal appeal. His one-man-band shows are raw, intimate offerings of virtuosic slide guitar, infectious rhythms, engaging song writing and a soulful, blues inspired voice.
His travels have taken him and his music to some of the most highly respected venues and music festivals in the world. In 2013 Sam played Glastonbury festival where he and his band were described by The Independent News Paper as "One of the hot new acts making the summer swing". Since then, he has spent the majority of his time touring, playing festivals such as Glastonbury, Isle of Wight, Boomtown and Shambala, alongside Independently releasing his music.
March 2017 saw the release of Sam’s first full length solo album 'Just stand still' a record which tells the story of coming home to Devon and laying down roots on which to start a new chapter. The album features eight new songs written at home on his 8-track recorder and developed over the space of a year where he had the time and space to create, surf and recover from a hectic few years of non-stop D.I.Y touring. Sam appeared in 2017 at the world famous Sziget Festival in Budapest along with his band. He then spent the rest of the 2017/18 winter season touring his new solo album (opening for acts such as Wildwood Kin, Echotown and Wille and the Bandits) and has recently released 'Onsette Return,' the latest EP from Sam Green and the Midnight Heist.
For a great night of live music, don't miss Sam Green.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS EVENING OF BEAUTIFUL MUSIC
Craig Sutton, better known as The Flamenco Thief, is an English guitarist whose phenomenal rise within the DIY music scene has seen him become one of the busiest touring artists in the country.
Specialising in fast rhythmic guitar playing Craig has earned a reputation for mesmerising live performances in which he uses a Spanish acoustic guitar with the Boss RC loop pedal to blend modern rhythms with time-honoured Flamenco techniques.
A particularly resourceful musician, Craig also utilises the guitar as a percussive instrument, layering metronomic hip-hop beats by carefully beating the body; creating a unique energy that few solo instrumentalists manage to achieve.
Craig’s early influences of ska, hip-hop and gypsy swing are evident throughout his music, helping him craft a catalogue of songs that are intelligent but accessible.
Craig’s compositions revere Flamenco’s heritage while embracing music technology, and as a result each song is delicately poised between the classical and contemporary.
Uncle Funk and Alex Conrad (Funk/ Disco)
