The line up is...

ANDY STONE Fantastic guitarist vocalist from York. "I'm a guitarist/singer/songwriter. Usually there's just me and my guitar, but I often have the pleasure of making music with some other, rather talented folks. I'm currently playing and recording guitars for Dan Webster's first Album release. I'm constantly on a long mission to find the right musicians to play on my own first album. Foda (Paul Fothergill) will most definitely be providing his bass skills, but thats as far as I've got! I also occasionally play with two function bands, "The Juniors" and "Blue Nun", which features Alistair Griffin on lead vocals".

MILES CAIN takes his cues from acts such as Billy Bragg, Van Morrison, Waterboys, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan. The York-based singer-songwriter has released four albums, including his latest, A Way Of Being Free, released in 2007. He is a seasoned live performer, with gigs at festivals like Beverley Folk Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, Greenbelt and venues like Fibbers in York and the Adelphi in Hull. He has supported acts such as Jackie Leven, Martyn Joseph, Juliet Turner and Edwina Hayes. Miles also works as a journalist, poet and storyteller. His website is : http://www.milescain.com/

Also in the Basement will be Whitby's own CHRIS THE POET. Chris is a very talented individual, writing excellent verse about Whitby and its people. Although he'll make you smile, there is also a depth of thought behind his words (it says here).

PANZER ATTACK are a local band from Esk Valley usually know for their heavier sound. At the Basement some members of the band will give us an acoustic set using their own material. This will be a treat for all who are familiar with their musical output. http://www.myspace.com/theashesofsoma (This link will actually take you to the Soma Myspace site, the band that became Panzer Attack. You may as well wallow in Soma's shimmering loveliness. If you then want to experience Panzer Attack, click on their name in the Popwatch links.)

BARBARA HELEN "An extremely talented songwriter, who presents her songs with a voice that ranges between sensitive & soaring! But I love good instrumentation, so the best compliment I can offer is that her guitar picking & strumming is as good as it gets.” Stan Gee*

FRAGILE is made up of Mark Atkinson and Sally Ann Smith, also joined by bass player Kevin Melling, adding a different dimension to their music. Mark and Sally are the organisers of the event and are always interested in hearing from anyone who would like to take part or know of someone who would like to.http://www.myspace.com/fragilesm

THE COMMITTEE are a fantastic young rock band from the Esk Valley who are always in demand.

ADAM MOSS from Whitby is 15 years old and shows the makings of a fine musician. We're bound to see a lot more of him on the music scene in the future.
