K D Carpets
6 St. James Street

are an indie-folk band from Devon, UK. They combine rich vocals, acoustic guitar, bass riffs, keys and violin, to give an original take on a traditional genre. Drawing upon personal stories, melancholy tales and rugged landscapes, they create a serene, and haunting sound that is difficult to forget.
With a performance at Celtic Connections already under their belt, the band are set for an exciting year ahead. Founding band members Lara Snowdon (vocals and guitar), and Kathryn Tremlett (violin and piano), are joined by Roger Styles on guitar and Barry Muir on double bass, and they returned to the studio to record a second EP in April 2017

Owl in the Sun play a home-grown blend of self-penned Americana and gypsy-jazz influenced songs. From the heart-warming to the dark and edgy, the gentle toe-tapping to the downright dance your socks off. Expect infectious melodies and luscious harmonies over a line-up of upright bass, acoustic guitars, accordion, fiddle and flute."
