Young Rocks were initially brought together to perform 1 song at MITP 2019, however they actually managed to nail 4 tracks. Since then, they have gone from strength to strength, especially with the introduction of their new lead singer Daniel.

In 2019 they also performed at Music in the Garden, Towersey, XYZ MusicFestival, Griffinfest and are beginning to play the local open mic scene, with several events already booked for the coming year.

They play a mix of classic rock and pop covers and have recently starting to write and perform some original songs.

The band consists of Bradley Baker, George Boydon, Daniel Field, Samuel Griffin and Steven Young, they are all aged between 11 and 14 yrs.

Neil and Vanessa are a music duo from rural Oxfordshire. Individually they've been playing music for many years but 2019 saw them join forces to create this sweet sounding duo. Think Neil Young meets Carole King to give you an idea of their style.

16-year-old Max Blansjaar spent the first few years of his musical career as a virtuoso classical pianist. In late 2017 he started to experiment with his unique brand of lo-fi pop music, writing and recording a collection of songs on an old computer at his school. Since then, Max has gained a reputation for his energetic live shows, receiving regular BBC Radio airplay and treading stages at the likes of Truck Festival and Ritual Union."

The Ponderosa are Rod Craig (mandolin/vocals), Mat Davies (bass), Kate Saunders (fiddle/vocals), Simon Stafford (vocals/guitar), and Colin Tester (percussion).
Hailing from the gently rolling hills and river valleys of Oxfordshire, they play an infectious blend of the familiar, the unfashionable and obscure: traditional and contemporary acoustic music and Americana played with passion and energy, by turns sublime and rabble-rousing.
“Worryingly good” Johnnie Littler
