Johnny Heyes on guitar, Zoltan Dekany on acoustic bass, Alex Morgan
on keys and Sammy Hendricks on drums. Unsurprisingly, Dennis Rollins

her acclaim ever since she won the All Ireland Singing Trophy at the
age of 14. Competing against the likes of Sinead O Connor and
Enya she won the prestigious Meteor Award for best female singer in

over. Her album Sweet Liberty was described as
quietly assured masterpiece Time Out. She will be showcasing

of Chumbawamba is a fantastic mix of traditional English music: unplugged
pop, choral secular music, jangly acoustic singalongs plus great stories
- bringing a punk sensibility to a traditional musical form.
Surely not to be missed!
Intriguing and original...predictably unexpected...impressive.
