Some of Brighton's most vibrant music is to be found in small pubs tucked away in side streets - our own venue is one example - and that's where we discovered three of our upcoming acts. So far we've only seen them in a public bar setting where they're competing with ambient noise, so we're looking forward to hearing them in our more attentive setting...

First up is The Second Hand String Band, whose exciting take on the bluegrass and country tradition is delivered with an authenticity which belies their youth. Their line up of guitar, banjo and string bass, fronted by the rich voice of Amy Harrison, is the real deal.

Next year we'll be hosting multi-instrumentalists Porchlight Smoker and the effervescent Danni Nicholls.
