8pm EARLY SET - MERCY


Fiona Lee aka Mercy may only be 19, but you wouldn’t believe it by hearing the music she creates. Growing up in York, England has given her a unique outlook on life which is showcased in her
EP “Excuse my Love”. A personal insight that is rare these days. Fiona writes lyrics way beyond her young years, as her debut single “Perfect Place” will prove.

SCOTT KROKOFF


New Yorker Scott Krokoff (pron: Crow-Cough) weaves elements of folk rock & country pop into confessional and compelling Americana. He is an evocative and introspective songwriter, and a deft finger-picker in the vein of James Taylor and Paul Simon with “an edge of Replacements styled alt rock to his strum” (Hiplanta). Scott has opened for Elle King, toured from Vermont to Nashville, and performed live in Belgium for his biggest fan. UK’s Music-News.com praised Scott’s 2019 single, Groundhog, as “powerful” and having “a compelling way of instantly drawing the listener in.”

PHILIP MARINO


Raised in a cornfield-surrounded suburb of Chicago, Illinois, Philip Marino brings the Midwestern values of honesty, authenticity, and persistence to his music and, he hopes, to his life. Influenced at a young age by the likes of John Mellencamp, Jim Croce, Cat Stevens, Neil Young, and Bob Dylan, the music Marino makes today is a mix of storytelling and soul-searching.

Currently based in Suffolk, England, Marino has played shows on many well-known stages from London to Norwich (and many places in between) since 2011 (e.g., The Islington, Proud Camden, The Harrison, The Monarch, Colchester Arts Centre, Hertford Corn Exchange, Live at Little Rabbit Barn, Cambridge Folk Club, John Peel Centre for Creative Arts, Ipswich Music Day). His songs have been played on radio stations around the world, including BBC radio throughout the United Kingdom. On his 3rd CD (‘Days Like These’ – released in 2017) Marino worked with platinum-selling producer and singer-songwriter Simone Felice (the producer for The Lumineers, Vance Joy, and Bat For Lashes) and with James Felice from the well-known American folk band The Felice Brothers.

“Marino continues to show just why he’s bubbling on the edge of a commercial breakthrough.” – Maverick Magazine

“A wonderfully cultured singer-songwriter, the likes of whom we need to lend more support. 8 out of 10.” – AmericanaUK

“Strong earthy vocals, with a searingly passionate approach to his austere soul searching songs. Honest music for dishonest times.” – Acoustic Magazine

“It’s unlikely you’ll come across Marino on well-travelled paths, but look for those musical sideroads and less beaten paths and seek him out. Chasing Ghosts is his best yet.” – Folk Radio

“Deft arrangements under warm, resonant vocals and guitar work, these are candid, soul-searching and celebratory declarations, sentimental and ultimately positive.” – Rock Society Magazine
