Inspired originally by the earlier sounds of folk artists such as James Taylor, Nick Drake, John Martyn and Joni Mitchell, London based artist Hattie Whitehead takes influence from both old and new music, drawing upon the eclectic range of musical styles she has been surrounded by throughout life. Distinguished by the purity of her vocal tones and crystal clear delivery, her experience of playing, singing and listening to folk, jazz, soul, alternative and many more genres has led Hattie to develop a style that is melodic, soulful, heartfelt and often unpredictable. The release of her debut EP 'Home' prompted radio play from stations including BBC and Amazing Radio, and a sell-out launch gig at St Pancras Old Church in London. Highlights of Hattie's journey since the release of 'Home' have included bookings at top UK festivals such as Latitude, Secret Garden Party, Wilderness, Field Day and Cambridge Folk Festival, support for up and coming and established artists such as Howard Rose and Beth Rowley and in more recent months winning third prize in Glastonbury's Emerging Talent Competition. Now working on her next release, Hattie's eagerness to push boundaries with her music and cross genres has led her to work on tracks that hold her folk roots whilst gesturing towards a brand new, fresh and powerful sound.

'Hattie's got the sort of talent that means in a couple of years' time we'll all be boasting about being here tonight' - For Folk's Sake

'...this talent deserves a spotlight.'

 ' Yours and the light from it, un-buoyed '
by
Patricia Cain

Patricia Cain is a Dumfries and Galloway-based artist, author and researcher who completed her PhD through the practice of drawing at Glasgow School of Art.
Her practice (drawing, painting, sculpture and public art) is intimately connected to her interest in skill-lead art-making processes, the value of these as First Person research methodologies and the importance of teaching and encouraging skill in this era of concept-led Art Education.
Her book Drawing: The Enactive Evolution of the Practitioner explores the relationship between drawing and enactive thinking and examines how art-making can actualize and visually make evident the emergent aspects of its own activity, allowing artists to become self-aware of their own thinking and learning processes.
Trish exhibits nationally and internationally, winning both the Threadneedle and Aspect Prizes in 2010. Her recently acclaimed major exhibition at Kelvingrove, Drawing (on) Riverside, exposed the nature of practitioner knowledge to a wider lay audience through the observation and response to the construction of Glasgow’s new Riverside Museum which has subsequently been likened to Dewey’s study of the nature of method.
