RICHARD DAWSON (UK)
One blue Sunday morning in 2012 i heard this man sing about a Poor Old Horse. After first hearing this song, the singer Richard Dawson has constantly been with me. A skewed troubadour who sings and plays guitar with a rare intensity and singular style. His voice has been compared to everyone from Tim Buckley to Richard Youngs while his guitar playing recalls Sir Richard Bishop and Zoot Horn Rollo and, combined with the inescapable snare of his lyrics, means surrender to his music is inevitable. He’s genuinely one of the most affecting performers you’ll ever see. 

 
IGNATZ & De Stervende Honden (BE)
George Herrman created Ignatz in 1910. It was a vicious mouse in the comic Krazy Kat. Ignatz’ favourite occupation was throwing bricks at Krazy Kats head, who thought it was a love declaration from the mouse. Bram Devens uses Ignatz as his alter-ego for his own pile of bricks. Acoustic songs wrapped with effects and driven by improvisation and spontaneousness. 
De Stervende Honden (= The Dying Dogs / Chiens Mourants ) are Erik Heestermans (Sheldon Siegel/ Steve Gunn) and Tommy De Nys ( Sylvester Anfang II / Steve Gunn ) forming the rhythm section and safety net for Ignatz.   
 
RHODRI DAVIES (UK)
is a harp player working within the field of free improvisation. He was one of the most prominent members of the London reductionist school of improvised music that was active in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Davies is also active in the field of contemporary composition and new pieces for harp have been composed for him by leading avant-garde composers including Eliane Radigue and Phill Niblock.
