Lucy Bell, winner of the PanArts Young Singer Award, provides a mixture of folky, indie pop sounds - whilst incorporating her own alternative twist on music. Although just 19 years old, Lucy has a few years performing experience and brings her sharp writing skills, and polished performance to The Crescent for you to hear!
Alice LA submerges herself in colour with her fun, energetic performances. Being at home in pop culture, her voice is large, and her songs are catchy – but she also retains the right to be arch and subversive. This is an act not to be missed!
A riff magician, and a weaver of tall tales - Rí offers jazzy melodies and upbeat folk rhythm to his music, using harmonica, cajon and acoustic guitar.
Songwriter by day, composer and performer by night. Come along and witness the release of his first solo EP, performed by a full band!
