Elliott Morris

date calender icon Friday 7th July

With hundreds of gigs behind him, Elliott Morris has a formidable reputation as one of the hardest-working and most sought-after young artists on the acoustic scene.

The singer-songwriter began playing electric guitar when he was 11, but launched his solo set at 17, just a year after starting to explore the possibilities of the acoustic instrument. Elliott taps the strings and beats the guitar’s body to create an intricate spectacle, together with an original and unique sound integral to his songs.

He has supported Erik Mongrain, Andy McKee, Frank Turner, Seth Lakeman, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, Jim Bob (Carter USM), Jon Gomm, Paul Carrack, legendary Philadelphia soul groups The Stylistics and The Three Degrees, and revered folk veterans Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick. He gigs regularly with Dave McPherson (InMe) and has played many times with old friend, Ed Sheeran.

Ben Williams

date calender icon Friday 14th July

A Manchester based singer-songwriter who moulds the classic songwriting 

sound of Paul Simon with the laid back nature  of  Jack  Johnson,  Ben  Williams  is  a  difficult  artist  to  pigeonhole  and  is  all  the  better  for  it.  His  new  self-­‐produced  album,  ‘Who  Do  You  Think  You  Are?’,  has  been  seven  years  in  the  making,  as  Williams  –  earning  a  living  as  an  in-­‐demand  session  guitarist  –  wrote  his  own  songs  in  the  spare  time  he  had  between  playing  and  recording  with  other  artists.  With  a  clear  passion  for  music,  he  wrote  something  like  60  songs  over  this  period,  of  which  the  best  11  have  been  chosen  to  make  up  his  debut  album.  Self-­‐produced  and  featuring  a  selection  of  the  finest  musicians  in  Manchester,  Williams  has  delivered  a  genuine  gem  of  a  debut.  Often  quirky,  sometimes  funny,  and  occasionally  more  reflective,  the  songs  demonstrate  a  fantastic  range  of  approaches  and  ideas.
