Edwina Hayes Edwina was born in Dublin and grew up in Preston, Lancashire before moving to the East coast of Yorkshire as a teenager, where she has been based ever since. Dividing her time between the UK and America, Edwina's second home is Nashville where she is much loved as a songwriter and artist. Her beautifully written songs, charming stage presence and voice of an angel have won her a reputation as a true natural talent of gentle folk-americana. She has opened numerous shows for Jools Holland and Van Morrison and the title track of her album Pour Me A Drink was covered byNanci Griffith who calls her 'the sweetest voice in England'. Polly Paulusma One moment in 2003, she was happily putting the finishing touches to her shed-recorded debut 'Scissors in my Pocket’, and the next, Paulusma was signed up to Bjork's label One Little Indian and catapulted around the world for six years supporting Bob Dylan, Jamie Cullum, Joseph Arthur, Coldplay and many others. Her sophomore album ‘Fingers & Thumbs’ charted a difficult journey to motherhood; in 2012 and two children later she founded the Wild Sound record label to release her third, more life-affirming ‘Leaves from the Family Tree’: Wild Sound now boasts nine artists and Paulusma continues to write, produce and co-write - recent collaborations include songs written with Kathryn Williams, Danny & The Champions of the World and Astrid Williamson. She was awarded the EFDSS Bursary in 2014 and is currently working on a PhD on folksong in literature, and preparing to record her fourth album. Joan Coffey Born and raised in Ireland, but now adopted by London, Joan is a singer who pulls no punches, but the redemptive quality of her songs means that you will always leave her gigs feeling that life is brilliant. Joan is at heart an entertainer, and has the ability to connect with everyone in the room. Her intuitive, animated performances stay with anyone who sees her play, long after the performance is over. The strength of her songwriting, combined with her powerful voice, has led to Joan recently being named London Time Out’s ‘Critic’s Choice’ for female folk singers. “Quite simply, beautiful” – BBC Music. This performance will be presented “In the Round”. All 3 performers will be onstage throughout the show, which will be presented in 2 halves with an interval in between. [...]

Seven is inspired by a gig Tiff did in David Lynch's nightclub in Paris last year, just one month before the Bataclan attacks. Tiff explores our need to make huge worldwide impactful events about us, delving into morality, modernity, vanity, mental health, film reboots & clouds.
Quickly becoming a well-known face on television screens, 2015 saw Tiff play series regular Tanya in BBC3s hit mockumentary People Just Do Nothing, which will be returning in 2016 for two more series, join the panel twice on Mock The Week (BBC Two), perform on Comedy Centrals Russell Howard's Stand Up Central, be a guest on Dave's Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled, recount a story on Comedy History's Drunk History and become the UK correspondent on for the new Australian satirical programme The Weekly With Charlie Pickering. Other credits include The Office (BBC Two), The Apprentice: You're Fired (BBC Two), Only Joking (Sky), Never Mind the Buzzcocks (BBC Two), Celebrity Deal or No Deal (Channel 4) and Safeword (ITV2).
★★★★★ The Sunday Herald, This is a heartfelt, hilarious, provocative, important hour of stand-up from one of the best in the business.
★★★★★ The Mirror, It's punchy and political but in the best, most human sort of way. It's charming but hard-hitting and it's radical, but not self-consciously so.
