From acoustic to electronic, Harri Endersby blurs the lines of the folk genre, drawing inspiration from both contemporary and traditional music, as well as the rugged landscape of County Durham, the place that she calls home.
Her debut album Homes/Lives, released in February 2017, has impressed critics around the country and she has had tracks played on BBC Radio 6, Radio Scotland, and Radio Wales. Homes/Lives presents a transition in style, beginning with acoustic, stripped-back tracks whilst gradually introducing electronic instrumentation and beats as the album progresses. This interweaving of genres has been inspired by Harri’s love of Icelandic electro-folk and the likes of Ásgeir and Samaris.
At live gigs, Harri is joined by husband Rich, who also plays guitar and percussion.
Her 5-track EP ‘Ivy Crown’ released in 2014, rose to #17 in the iTunes singer-songwriter charts and had tracks played on BBC Newcastle Introducing, The Folk Show on Bishop FM, and Roger
William’s ‘World of Difference’. Her album 'Homes/Lives' was released on the 25th February 2017.
“Musically brilliant storytelling song-writing at its ﬁnest is what Endersby and her group deal in.”

Hailing from the industrial town of Middlesbrough in the North East of England, James Kruman seems to have been influenced heavily by his working-class environment. His unassuming poetry is blended with a quirky fusion of psychedelic rock from the 60s and folk music to create a brutally honest, soul-stirring soliloquy you won’t find elsewhere.
Dymphna is the solo project of Teesside songstress Clare Hargan. Spooky, beautiful, soul-baring, emotive, twinkly. For fans of Regina Spektor, depression, hashtags, and insta filters. She'll be joined by the brilliant Liam Sanders too. Lovely stuff.
