|14:25 - 15:05||Steve Winch and The Inception||Steve Winch & The Inception are a retro-tinged, high-octane shot of adrenaline inspired by mod fashion, punk attitude & 1960s melody. A powerful combination of crunch, punch & killer tunes in the tradition of The Jam, The Stranglers, Elvis Costello. Debut album "Down At The Soul Dispensary" is available now on digital platforms and on vinyl. These boys are truly at home both on the stage and in the studio.||Pop / Rock|
|15:20 - 16:00||Cutwater||Classic line-up of electric guitars, bass and drums playing original songs with influences ranging from shuffling 70s boogie, through Americana and to country rock. Cutwater is a band who loves the sound of their instruments: the Gibson 335 through the Lazy J, the vintage Tele through a Cornell, The '82 Precision Bass through an Ampeg, the Ludwig drums. Playing together in a room, when recording, using minimal overdubs and striving to capture the sound they make, Cutwater thrives on what happens when they play together: the intuitive performance that creates the alchemy of harmonics and overtones with which the songs are adorned. Have a listen.||Indie|

Both of the 'buoys' had a completely different upbringing in terms of musical styles. This led them down a path of intertwining many genres into one, to form a raw and fresh alt / folk island sound, with catchy riffs and big choruses.||Folk|
