Event details: Brian Houston is from Belfast and is one of the UK's finest singer/ songwriters. As heard live on Radio 2's Bob Harris show his brand of lively and passionate folk rock demonstrates his finely tuned melodic sense and clever, astutely commercial writer's ear. Houston is a natural communicator, an extremely unpretentious artist, and a definitive crowd-pleaser. He ensures that there is heartfelt lyrical substance behind every song, a glimpse of his easy humorous rapport with an audience, ensures that they always leave with a copy of his CD and a smile.

He has opened for people such as Elvis Costello, Dr John and Van Morrison and in 2004 released the acclaimed album Thirteen Days which was declared Alt Country album of the year by BBC Radio Ulster. Again garnering airplay on Radio 2, this album also lead to a glowing review in Paste Magazine in America. His new CD Sugar Queen is already his biggest seller.

Clara Kousah is a singer/songwriter from Cambridge with a wonderfully rich, spell-binding voice and a writing style that staggers from the deeply emotional to a light and trouble-free carelessness.
She has been described as sounding like a cross between Joni Mitchell and Siouxsie and the Banshees, with hints of Evanescence, All About Eve and Ani DiFranco in the mix, and describes her own influences as ranging from the likes of Suzanne Vega to metal heads Megadeth.
