We love live music at ELFM and we have been supporting local musicians
since we started broadcasting in 2003. Last year more than 800 artists
performed lived in one of our weekly sessions...in the Parlour.
Added to that we promote both young and established artists in gigs,
galas and festivals broadcasting from our very special Caravan of
Love with live sets on the Awning Stage. We are excited to be back
at Garforth Arts Festival with a day of live, local music - Everybody
Loves Fabulous Music!

>>> THIS YEAR'S
ELFM STAGE PERFORMERS <<<
17 year - old Francesca Pidgeon only started writing songs last
April when she joined ELFM's Next Generation training programme
but since then she hasn't looked back. She spent much of last year
performing at gigs and festival, culminating in playing to an audience
of 15,000 people at the Leeds Lights switch on. Francesca is part
of the ELFM Associate Band program that supports and mentors young,
emerging Leeds-based artists.
Seas-Of-Green are a young DIY musical collective from Leeds. Positively
genre schizophrenic, an ever changing, mutating, disbanding, reforming
band who pride themselves on their pop hooks and being a little
odd. Seas-of-Green are part of the ELFM Associate Band program that
supports and mentors young, emerging Leeds-based artists.
ELFM have had the pleasure of knowing Ben for a long time, playing
his first session for is back in 2007. In that time Ben has become
an established part of the Leeds music scene with his incredible
and intricate guitar skills and deep blues vocals.
From acoustic, soul, jazz to blues, folk and middle eastern, Hayley's
unique and soulful voice makes them her own. By continuing to support
young, local artists with the various nights she promotes Hayley
has become one of Leeds' best-loved and respected performers.
Jamie Fletcher Band
More of a collection of friends than a typical band, Jamie has
gathered together a group of talented musicians that show off his
engaging and immediate songs to their full strength. Be prepared
for some sing-a-long ukulele action!
Handmadehands are a melody driven, guitar based band who have
been growing a reputation for unique and no holds barred approach
to pop. Mixing top draw tunes with brilliant live performances,
including playing a saw, their energy is unstoppable!
