Kadia 

Kadia (pronounced kay-dee-ah) are an acoustic trio from Bournemouth in Dorset performing a mix of traditional and contemporary folk songs, strongly rooted in the British folk tradition. They combine cello, fingerstyle guitar, 8 string ukulele and mandolin with three part harmonies to create rich and uplifting music, interspersed with history and storytelling. Kadia have just released a new EP 'The Outlandish Knight', which is a recording of traditional songs collected during the time of recording their debut album.  This is their first time at Loughton and we are delighted to welcome them here.

Chris Cleverley 

Fingerstyle Guitarist Chris's love of music started early, playing school classical guitar recitals as a young boy. He describes hearing a friend play John Smith and Martha Tilston to him as his 'folk music epithany' which marked a turning point in his playing.After delving deeper into the folk music world he quickly identified a string of great musicians whose styles he admired, absorbed and adapted. Chris describes his style of playing as stemming from the players of the ‘60s folk revival and beyond, like Nic Jones, John Renbourn, Bert Jansch, John Martyn, and Martin Simpson. 

Just five years since his epiphany, Chris' smart mix of traditional folk guitar and contemporary singer-songwriter has seen him rack up considerable support based just on word-of-mouth. He has played at various festivals and scooped the Isambard Folk Award 2014 at Bristol Folk Festival. Since then, Chris has released his debut album 'Apparatitions' which includes American tunes, original songs and the odd banjo tune. This will be Chris's first visit to Loughton and we are delighted to welcome him.

Ben Moss and Laurel Swift 


Ben Moss and Laurel Swift are both fantastic musicians and dancers and have performed as a duo since 2013. Having danced together in Morris Offspring for many years they have developed a punchy, infectious style of playing that defies anyone not to dance and sing along. With fiddles, melodeon, voices and clogs, Ben and Laurel sing and play folk music from a wide variety of sources. Watch out for Ben 'dancing' the London Marathon on Sunday 23rd April to raise money for ActionAid.
