    Paul Daffrun and Paul Cobbold

    • Time: 5:00pm
    • Info: Paul Daffurn is a songwriter and singer based in the UK. He writes in a vein laced with Blues, Alternative Rock and Folk influences and his reflective lyrics communicate a deep, emotional charge. Paul’s current work is essentially acoustic but it still retains all the energy found in earlier band-based performances of his original material with 30 Seconds, Lucyhouse and Greg Ridley (Humble Pie/Spooky Tooth). Paul Cobbold has a very strong link to Rockfield Studio's the rest they say is history: Professional background as a musician (session and bands), sound recording engineer and record producer, live sound engineer and project studio owner.

  • Sicknote Steve 1 2016

    Sicknote Steve

    • Time: 10:30pm
    • Info:  I'm assuming here that Sicknote Steve could be a bit like Seasick Steve.  Do you like your blues played on rudimentary instruments and hollered as if your life depended on it? Do you long for the days when Seasick Steve played small clubs and didn’t command such a hefty entrance fee, well if you answered yes to the following couple of questions salvation could be in hand. Whilst stumbling around at Upton Blues Festival, we chanced upon Mr Sicknote Steve, a man who know’s a think about feral howling blues and recreating that authentic Seasick sound.

I'm the seashells in your stomach. I'm lime flavoured. I'm Michael Jackson trapped inside a slightly larger Michael Jackson. I'm toilet paper.” It’s an interesting statement from Jesse River Dylan Murray. And with songs like Everyone Wants To Look At Me But Nobody Wants To Look Me In The Eye and That’s Got Nothing To Do With Music, we’re not in ordinary territory here. He’s something else. This is what pop stars look like. Jesse River Dylan Murray plays Brecon Fringe at Brecon Tap on Frineg Sunday at 5pm.
