The night is curator and BBC presenter Steve Lamacq.

First up are Katzenjammer from Norway, a dynamic group of female multi-instrumentalists who use a signature custom Balalaika bass with the face of a cat painted on it, and play a dynamite brand of eclectic folk influenced material epitomised by their electrifying underground hit “Play A Bar In Amsterdam”.

Denmark’s Bodebrixen – Aske Bode and Andreas Brixen – will also be using a lot of different instruments within their special brand of “happy indie pop”, which they create alongside other touring band members bearing banjos, synthesisers and saxophones amongst other things.

Last but not least we have Icelandic pop talent Hafdis Huld, former performer with Iceland’s Gus Gus and now a powerful starlet in her own right, and whose second solo album, ‘Synchronised Swimmers’ is all set to be released internationally.
