Leah Song (USA), solo performance by Leah Smith from Rising Appalachia. “Rising Appalachia is a genre-bending force of sound that uses vocal harmony, lyrical prowess and diverse artistic collaborations to defy cultural clichés and ignite a musical revolution… They are creatively committed to keeping their work accessible at the local street level as well as expanding to larger audiences abroad, and have continued to maintain autonomy by self-managing, recording, producing, creating, and directing their work.”

Shireen (NL)
‘I call the type of songs I play ‘Crisis-Folk’. A combination of words made up to describe the traditional folksongs me and longtime friend and fellow musician Dorien Meijsing sang and played in our ukulele/vocal-harmony project ‘çok güzel’. We used to tell people that came to listen to us play, that ‘from different sorts of crises in peoples’ lifes, sometimes beautiful things came to be, be it (revolutionary) change, or a great song!’

Dangle Manatee (UK)
Dangle Manatee is a two-piece folk-punk band from Durham and Newcastle, UK. Hugh plays guitar, harmonica and sings. Pippa plays fiddle, tambourine and sings. They both stamp their feet a lot. They write songs about poetry, animals, and trying to be kind in an unkind world.
