Hogers Wolf

Hogers Wolf is Andy Hoger an Oxfordshire based singer songwriter inspired by the greats of the late 1960’s and 1970’s. Drawing on Folk, Rock and Progressive styles to shape his style of song writing his sound has been likened to Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Roy Harper and Ian Anderson (if you know who these greats of yester year are?).

Based out of Chalgrove’s little home studio Andy has been producing Eps and singles that are available on all the usual streaming channels. He is gigging the local Bucks, Berks and Oxon scenes and is a regular at many of the local music venues and festivals.

The Time Travellers

The Time Travellers will take you back to a time when music was fun. Steering clear of the norm they will entertain you with renditions from Cash, Presley, Orbison, Everly’s, Beatles, to name but a few. A mix of real rock and roll, rockabilly and country delivered in their own unique acoustic style with vocal harmonies makes them a huge hit wherever they go.

Kiera Gabrielle.

Singer – Songwriter, Kiera Gabrielle is a captivating performer. She has a talent for writing raw and meaningful songs based on her personal life experiences. Her “boys who did me wrong” songs can be found on all streaming platforms at Kiera Gabrielle with lyric videos on her YouTube channel.

Paul Edmonds Trio

Paul & Ross met in the Summer of 2022 at a Thame Concert Band rehearsal. After discovering that Ross also sang and that they shared a love for the sound of voice and piano, Paul had the idea of recording an album of songs in his studio. This resulted in a collaboration which also showcases Paul’s piano playing in an eclectic mix of songs and styles.

Simon Gregory

Simon has been playing for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s lead singer with popular Oxfordshire rockers Innuendo, but his solo acoustic show is more eclectic and his original songs touch on love, loss, identity and family ties. If he can make you laugh, cry, or at least, think – his job is done.

Taylor & Girish

Taylor & Girish are a husband-wife indie folk duo based in Oxford. Having been recently interviewed and featured on BBC Introducing Oxford & Berkshire, they are currently working on their debut EP ‘You Never Can Tell’ due to be released later this year.

Like all true artists, their music reflects their lives. Vasu Girish, a scientist from India with a master’s in biological engineering and Adam Taylor, a jazz musician from the U.K. met by chance in the Netherlands and from then formed a musical world which incorporates the richness of their story.

Their sound is a unique, rootsy blend of genres including folk, blues and bluegrass, with tight harmonies and intricate guitar work. Their music equally draws from the singer-songwriter lineage of the 60’s and 70’s; artists such as Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Paul Simon as it does from the modern writers such as Phoebe Bridgers, Ben Howard and Laura Marling.

The duo will be playing a mix of their originals and covers.
