Thomas Kavanagh is an acoustic singer/songwriter from Exeter, Devon UK After performing as the lead singer for the rock group ‘I Divide’ for 8 years, he’s now doing things alone. His recent track ‘Best Of Me’ made the cut for ‘Track Of The Week’ on BBC Introducing in Devon, back in 2016. He’s recently completed self-producing his debut EP ‘Pathfinder’, which is out now.Thomas takes influences from a variety of modern pop and rock bands, such as The Script and One Republic.

Mitchell and Vincent are a folk duo from the Westcountry who play a mix of traditional tunes and songs from around the British Isles on Fiddle and Classical Guitar which combine interesting and varied arrangements with great foot-tapping folk music.
They have performed at a whole variety of festivals and concerts around the UK and abroad as well as supporting renowned musicians such as Tim Edey, Archie Fisher MBE, Jackie Oates and Kate Rusby along the way.
Acoustic magazine described their second album ‘Circling the Square’ with, “At all times, the interplay between David Mitchell’s guitar and Graham Vincent’s fiddle is quite stunning.”
FATEA Magazine said that, “You will find music that is beautifully played, with a delicacy and lightness of touch that immediately brings to mind Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill” and that Graham had a “pleasantly rich voice”.
Bright Young Folk has perhaps described them best when they said, “Their sound is much deeper and richer than you would expect from an acoustic duo. Intricate instrumentalism and pulsing rhythms abound … providing skilled arrangements and expert delivery of tunes and songs which showcase the vibrancy, and variety, of folk music across Britain. A thoroughly engaging and enjoyable experience.”
