Fred’s House
Fred’s House are an award winning band based in Cambridge. Mixing elements of Folk, Pop, Country, Classic Rock and West Coast with a definite vintage feel to their music, echoing the 70’s but creating a fresh new sound that is very much part of now.  Among their many influences are bands such as Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, The Swell Season and C.S.N.Y.


With over 500 gigs under their belt, the band are creating quite a stir on the live circuit and gaining a reputation for their stunning and energetic shows across the UK. Fred’s House recently scooped two awards at the Annual NMG Awards 2013; ‘Best Folk/Roots Band’ and ‘Audience Choice Award’ as voted for by the public. Gaining a following wherever they go, their fans or ‘Housemates’, claim their music is addictive and come to show after show. It’s easy to fall in love with their uplifting harmonies and infectious melodies. They released their much anticipated debut album Bonnie and Clyde in April 2014 to critical acclaim grabbing 4 and 5 star reviews across the board as well as emphatic press.

Jack Harris
Jack Harris was a South by South-West showcasing artist at 17. He was also the youngest, as well as the only non-American person ever to win the New Folk song writing award at the Kerrville Folk Festival, Texas. Previous winners included Gillian Welch, Steve Earle and Devon Sproule.

Those days are gone, along with most of Jack’s youth and vigour, but he’s still pleased to find himself in such company. And he still writes literate, compassionate songs, about subjects as disparate as Caribbean drinking festivals, the colour of a potato flower and the lives of great poets like Elizabeth Bishop.

These have won him considerable acclaim. The Telegraph voted his album ‘The Flame and the Pelican’ #5 in their top 10 Roots/Folk albums of 2012. Q magazine praised his ‘unique lyrical mind’, and Maverick UK awarded the record its full 10/10 rating. His writing and performance has also led to a great relationship with the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS), through whom he has been the recipient of a creative bursary award to write new songs in the old Folk idiom.

His New album, The Wide Afternoon, will be released in September 2016.

Cara Winter
Cara Winter, a singer/song-writer from Saffron Walden (originally Littlebury!).

Her debut album ‘Butterfly’, recorded at 18 years old, was greatly recieved, with the title track ‘Butterfly’ being picked as a favourite by judges of a BBC Singer/Songwriter competition.  PRS Magazine also hailed Cara Winter ‘An artist to watch out for’.

‘Peter And The Whale’, Cara’s sophomore album saw a more mature voice emerge which inspired this acclaim from Grammy winning Producer/Mixer Simon Gogerly,: “Cara’s music is haunting and elemental, evoking images of the sea and ghostly carnivals as her warm voice drifts over pulsating piano and strings.”

Cara’s most recent release, ‘Do You Have A Heart?’, is a collaborative album with cellist and string arranger, Nick Cooper.  Songs ‘Butterfly’ and ‘She’ll Go’ were featured on Tom Robinson’s BBC Radio 6 Mixtape and Ollie Winiberg’s BBC Introducing.


Cara is currently working on new material, due to be released later on in 2016.

Live, Cara weaves an intimate web around her audience skilfully weighting the pure musicality of performance with a natural and honest audience rapport.
