THE RYE SISTERS Reviewed in April 2023 by Americana UK ,The Rye Sisters were praised for their 'simply exquisite harmonies'. The Rye Sisters (Ishani and Sue) are a song-writing duo from Lincolnshire who perform Americana and folk-country songs in close harmony to guitar and fiddle. Sue performed, wrote, recorded and won awards with bands including The Woodberrys before the incarnation of The Rye Sisters. She played festival stages as well as running harmony and song-writing workshops for festival-goers. Ishani has a classically-influenced background. During her youth, she spent much time on stage performing musical theatre, jazz and as a member of multiple youth choirs and orchestras. She sang and toured with Pembroke Chapel Choir , venturing into the folk and country music scene in 2015 with the emergence of The Rye Sisters. Their new album 'Distant Light', arriving in mid-December 2023, is nearly all original material, inspired by experiences with friends and by musical adventures!

DAVE SMITH & PATTY VETTA Dave and Patty have, between them, years of musical influence, from folk to showband, rock and roll to country. Patty toured the world with The Settlers and they were both recently in an incarnation of the band. Patty spent much of her professional career as a backing vocalist with long-time partner Steve Somers, they worked with Don Everly, Frank Ifield and any one who needed them. Dave's songwriting reflects the experience, poignancy and humour of life and Dave and Patty work together as a harmonious unit, bringing deep thought and fun in equal measure
