Hannah Scott draws much of the inspiration for her music from her affinity with Italy. A year living and working on an olive press in rural Tuscany in her late teens provided the backdrop to her early work and she has found her musical home with creative partner, writer-producer and multi-instrumentalist Stefano Della Casa, who she met in London but may well have met in Italy years earlier when passing through the train station he was working in!
Hannah performs contemporary folk music and is building a loyal following thanks to her distinctive voice, powerful melodies and thought-provoking lyrics which leave a lasting impression on her audiences. Tonight she is launching “Ancient Lights”, a new EP featuring acoustic versions of some of her oldest and until now unavailable songs, songs she feels are still worthy of an audience and deserve a second chance!
Her music has been heard in hit TV series, Grey’s Anatomy, and has been played regularly on the BBC with releases supported by Dermot O’Leary and Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2 and Tom Robinson on 6 Music. She’s also been featured by MOJO, The Guardian and Clash Magazine.
Hannah has been selected to take part in English Folk Expo’s highly competitive Artist Mentoring Programme this year, while live highlights include opening for Madeleine Peyroux to an audience of 2000 at Edinburgh’s Festival Theatre and travelling across Ireland with Paddy Casey to open shows for him in Dublin and in a tiny Irish speaking village near Galway!
“This is beautiful.” – Dermot O’Leary, BBC Radio 2
“Exquisite voice.” – Record Of The Day
“She reduces women and children to tears – in a good way.” – Paul Lester, The Guardian
Tom Webber picked up a guitar at the age of 12 and his career as a performer started as a busker in Oxford when he was just 15.
He is a young man of 22 in love with great songs – from years spending time with his grandfather and father listening to anything from The Beatles and Beach Boys to Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan, he started out playing covers – rockers and love songs but soon realised that writing his own material was the way to go.
His debut EP “Stop and Think About It” with its beautiful 4 tracks of Sam Cooke-infused luminance and the standout track “Martha” earned him the title of Best Demo of the Year at 2022’s Glastonbury Festival
Tom has developed into one of the most recognisable new young singer songwriters – 2022 saw him support Nick Lowe on his UK tour, play Nells and Jazz Café in London, support Deacon Blue and Richard Hawley, appear at Isle of Wight Festival, Glastonbury, Henley Festival, Cornbury, Readipop, Womad, Truck Festival, The Big Feastival and Bunkfest across the Summer culminating in a sold out
headline show at Kenton Theatre, Henley on Thames in November 2022.
