Alan Glen & Dave Peabody are both veterans of the British blues scene.

Alan Glen is known for his playing with The Yardbirds, Nine Below Zero and Little Axe, plus his own band The Barcodes. He was first inspired to take up harmonica when he saw Muddy Waters in the late 60s.

Fran and Mike have spent many years honing their craft, and have developed a unique take on roots music and an amazing empathy on stage.
Simon Prager & Wendy Lanchin play an exciting mixture of acoustic music from country blues to ragtime, jazz, skiffle, swing and novelty songs. Simon has been involved in the British blues scene since the 60s, and Wendy came to folk and blues via cabaret and musical theatre.
