Skinner & T'witch's Pick n' Mix showcases some of the best of the emerging talent from in and around Leeds (& Skinner & T'witch!).

Samuel Moore - Skinner & T'witch played alongside Samuel Moore a Trinity Arts event last year and were simply blown away. Samuel Moore is a respected flamenco concert recitalist, music tutor, composer and author who has worked and performed internationally. He learnt to play flamenco by studying one-to-one with the internationally acclaimed guitarist Juan Martín.
Over the past five years Samuel has performed as a solo artist in some of the UK’s most prestigious concert auditoriums. He has also appeared on a number of BBC radio broadcasts and worked professionally with some of the most eminent musicians of the 21st century, including: Juan Martín and Kenny Burrell:

Wilson McGladdery - Gaynor Wilson is a singer songwriter who plays both violin and piano, although she is best known as a singer with a powerful stage presence that commands the full attention of her audience. Gaynor especially enjoys the freedom of acoustic singing and the intimate audiences found in acoustic and folk clubs, where the potency of her performance is witnessed to its full effect. Paul McGladdery is a singer songwriter and guitarist, known for his prolific songwriting encompassing a variety of styles and influences from folk to country to classic pop. Primarily, Paul loves to write a ballad, and he enjoys a cruel sense of humour that regularly translates into his lyrics.

Gaynor and Paul decided to join forces to enhance the reputations and audiences they had built as both solo artists and working with bands. Their strong friendship shows in their performances, which are witty, heartfelt and a feast of original material:
