Simeon Hammond Dallas is a singer-songwriter from London’s Camden Town. A unique take on classic genre, Simeon fuses Country, Blues, and Soul music to create her own blend of Americana, whilst keeping the integrity of a true Londoner. With unapologetic lyricism and storytelling at it’s core, her music acts as the soundtrack to a life framed as an intersectional feminist rom-com, held together with a powerhouse of a voice.

August 2022 saw the release of her second studio EP, Make It Romantic, held to high acclaim by the likes of Americana UK, Earmilk, Belles and Gals, Folk Radio, and more. The year also saw her hailed as a breakout star at Black Deer Festival, and with an electric EP launch show at iconic London venue The Lexington, plus a nomination for UK Song of The Year from the AMA UK under her belt, Simeon Hammond Dallas is definitely a name to look out for on the UK Americana scene.

Mikey Kenney is an original. A passionate and well-respected advocate for traditional music – a brilliant Liverpool-style fiddler drawing primarily on his native North West English and Irish heritage  – but grounded in a present-day, urban reality. He is a musician with wide-open horizons and insatiable curiosity for new possibilities. As evidenced on his latest album, The Reverie Road (Penny Fiddle Records), Kenney’s songwriting is both adventurous and earth-bound, with his high lonesome voice exploring sun-drenched Italian vistas, dream worlds and sounds of the city.

Mikey is currently working on a new album due for release next autumn. Mikey performs unaccompanied as well as being a prolific collaborator.

Mikey will be playing in a duo with his regular musical partner, Metty (Michael Paul Metcalfe) on drums.

An unreserved seated and standing show.
