Come on down! It's good craic, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, with excellent music to boot!

Katie Spencer - 'Drawing on influences such as John Martyn, Roy Harper and Laura Marling, Spencer creates modern folk music which owes as much to East Riding as it does to the American greats, with her striking vocals and adept songwriting backed by evocative and complex acoustic guitar. Indeed, recent demo ‘'Warehouse One’' boasts a formidable atmosphere … to create a Western soundscape of which Ry Cooder would be proud.' John Doyle, Wake The Deaf:

Mestisa - Mestisa blew everyone away at Skinner & T'witch's Pick n' Mix WSO Acoustic Roots Charity Festival in October, 2017. Leeds based Mestisa perform traditional and popular music from Latin America, with Ana Luisa Muñoz on vocals, cuotro, and guitar, and Barbara Kempf on vocals, guitar, and charango.

Martin Rose - Martin is an acoustic guitarist playing his own original material and arrangements, using Ibanez guitars and Elixir strings:

With...Skinner & T'witch - Skinner & T'witch are an original, contemporary folk acoustic duo performing folk, flamenco, and theatre style songs.
