Swingletree are Jassy Seagull and Ted Powles’ wondrous folk duo born out of the behemoth that was Calico Jack.

They sing songs of the sea, lost loves, and the ol’ canal reflecting the life they have lived and worked on the cut, with heart-warming harmonies, luscious squeeze boxes, and toe tapping tunes with a touch of cabaret sensibility.

City on a Hill

City on a Hill are Alf Hale on guitar and vocals and Jade Morris on the viola.

After having spent almost a decade in the wilderness, Alf Hale returns to the scene with his brand new EP ‘Misanthrope’. Chronicling his remarkable journey from the depths of alcoholic depression to his spiritual redemption, ‘Misanthrope’ is a deeply personal and emotional musical document.

Jade cut her teeth playing with the rock band Bohemian Embassy and was sought out by Alf and they got together this year to record the self-titled album that’s now available. The album is a rich blend of Irish, folk and Americana.
