Joining them on the bill are solo artist The Bear Around Your Neck, a folk-rock songwriter who recently appeared at Sounds From the Other City, and Honeyfeet guitarist, and folk bluesman Rik Warren.
Parisian born Singer songwriter Tiki Black tops this nights bill. Having found a love for Cameroonian music, travelling between there are France in her youth, and French Chanson song, she has a unique basis for her songwriting. Her emotive, piano based songs explore all manor of musical styles, and celebrate the human spirit. Marc Constantine is a talented looper and writer, layering guitar, vocals and hang percussion in his enthralling live performances. Honeyfeet guitarist, and folk bluesman Rik Warren foots the bill once again.
