Truth and Tall Tales presented by Kel Elliott & Her Three Man Orchestra
As seen at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival BBC Introducing stage, with Jamie Cullum and Jo Whiley.

Championed by jazz-pop star Jamie Cullum, sassy double-bass playing singer Kel Elliott is justly acclaimed for her rich and powerful voice and uplifting, genre-leaping songs, backed by impressive and unlikely instrumentation.

A passionate songwriter, most recently, she has been gathering stories and personal reminiscences from historic and reminiscence projects to transform into wonderfully vivid and inventive story-songs. Here, she brings to light the very best; quirky, fascinating, soulful and wonderful.

Wicky Wacky Woo presented by The Busquitos

Heightington Village Hall

Sheesham and Lotus & 'Son in Concert presented by Sheesham and Lotus & 'Son
Using a host of vintage instruments, this show-stopping Canadian trio serves up riotous, high stepping, sepia-tinted old-timey string-band music with roots in the vaudeville and juke joints of the American South. Oozing authenticity and dynamism this is hugely entertaining, and all in all a lovely, must-see treat. Truly they are the new kings of old time.

The Fleece Inn, Bretforton

Hannah James' JigDoll presented by Hannah James
Hannah James (Lady Maisery) is a true original, an utterly engaging one-woman folk band who mixes ethereal vocals and powerfully rhythmic accordion with elaborate percussive clog dance, all the while building up digital layers of sound using loop pedals. A brilliant, gently hypnotic live show with the sort of sparse, atmospheric quality which is The Unthanks trademark. A fresh, unexpected and invigorating treat.

Clows Top Victory Hall

The Ministry of Biscuits presented by The Foundry Group
In Post-War London, The Ministry of Biscuits casts its sinister shadow over every elevenses in the land. Established to 'control biscuits, and to control the idea of biscuits.' But when a junior designer falls in love and designs a biscuit to 'shake confectionery to its very foundations,' his world – and the ministry – are turned upside down. A clever, original, hilarious, and infectiously tuneful entertainment for audiences of all ages.
