25th June: The Lincolnshire Poachers / Andy Hughes / Jess Davis / Oakleas Rise
When they first met, musician and songwriter Stuart Mcleod was looking for vocal coaching and singer/songwriter and performer Lesley Curtis was looking for a creative marketeer to help her with her website. It was a fair swap of skills. Five years later finds them collaborating as the singer/songwriter and performing duo ‘Oakleas Rise’. They have created their own unique style of original music encompassing American country and English folk music – a sort of English Americana!
Jess Davis is a 17 year old singer/songwriter from Chatteris. She has been performing for 3 years and recently taught herself to play the guitar to help her performance.
She can regularly be seen at many festivals and events in the surrounding area.
