Storm the Palace are an Edinburgh and London based five-piece who combine elements of baroque-pop and traditional folk with menacing melodies and cinematic flare. This show marks the culmination of a UK and Ireland tour and also celebrates the release of their debut album 'Snow, Stars and Public Transport', which comes out on May 12th via Seattle's Abandoned Love Records. Written over a nine year period while singer Sophie Dodds lived in London, 'Snow, Stars and Public Transport' is an unintentional concept album full of compelling songs and contrasting textures, recalling bands such as Cocteau Twins and The Shins, as well as chansonniers from Scott Walker to Edith Piaf. "Magni...ficent" Vic Galloway (BBC Radio Scotland).

Duotone is the alias of songwriter Barney Morse-Brown, cellist with multi-platinum artist Birdy and BBC Folk Award winners the Imagined Village, Chris Wood, Eliza Carthy and Jackie Oates. Duotone’s latest album Let’s Get Low, written at home on his narrowboat in Oxford, reveals a songwriter who is unafraid to explore real-life experiences that are often hidden from view. He is due to release new material this spring, including a new single 'Martha', inspired by the paintings of artist Victoria Crowe. "This is some of the most amazing music you'll witness' Tim Hartford (BBC Radio 4)

Faith Eliott is an Edinburgh-based singer, songwriter, poet and artist. Originally from Minnesota, Faith moved to Edinburgh ten years ago and has since taken part in numerous creative collaborations, including Withered Hand and Meursault. Faith released their first solo EP 'Insects' on Song by Toad Records in 2016. Written whilst Faith was living in rural Nebraska, the record's dense and often surreal lyrical content reflects this landscape, whilst the musical content ranges from poppy and dynamic to spoken word tracks awash with drones and the sound of screeching cicadas.
