Boondoggle first came to Alderney for Apaff 4 since when their schedule is becoming busier and their music more individual.
Kevin Pallot came for Apaff 4 and his return with Naomi West is much awaited. This singer songwriter’s original material has seen recognition in the wider folk scene where his song The Soldier reached no 1 in UK Folk Charts.
Hot Plastic is a rock band with electro shards and soulful strands. J is a bass-playing Jersey girl with a Slash fanaticism and Nic sings and plays the guitar. Their sound is tree top dance, suburban indie beach rock and their objective is to create moments of bliss.
Gabby Young’s music delivers finely crafted, emotionally open songs at the core as she explores new and ever moving musical ways to surprise and delight. This visit to Alderney will see much of this new style of songs from this most original performer with her very own brand of music, accompanied by English folksinger and bassist Thom Ashworth playing stripped back arrangements of traditional songs for solo voice and bass.
Robert J. Hunter, local musician now based in London, combines his gruff and powerful voice with the wild thud of overdriven blues guitar to create his truly unique original music. Appearances at all the major English Jazz and Soul venues ensure that he is in demand.
