When Rivers Meet @ Leek Bar & Grill | England | United Kingdom

Grace & Aaron Bond of When Rivers Meet are a Blues + Roots Rock duo from Essex.

Their soulful vocals lock into harmony with a natural chemistry: Aaron’s bold, driven guitar is grounded by his solid kick drum, and Grace’s unique slide mandolin and fiddle combine to create a wall of sound.

With a combination of well-crafted self-penned songs and reworked traditionals, performances are fearless.

Kerry Fearon is one of Northern Ireland’s most popular emerging country singers. Her eponymous EP was released in 2016 and is available from Jean’s Country Music Store in Omagh. Her debut album is due in autumn 2017. The first single from the album was ‘Storms Never Last’. Listen to the second single, ‘Red River Valley’, above. Kerry’s debut album is the culmination of several years gigging and recording around her native Northern Ireland. Listen to her music on iTunes.


Born and raised in the Great North but living these days down in the Southland with a steady mind and a thoroughbred plan, Mike writes soul wrenchin’, riff bustin’ songs that will make you want to share the tale of his life’s journey and the lessons he’s learned.  Mike takes listeners on a uniquely detailed and image packed history tour of the history of the music of the music he loves to play, beginning in the Mississippi Delta at the beginning of the 20th century and finishing up right back in the present moment with his powerful emotive voice and intoxicating virtuosic guitar playing carrying you every inch of the way.  To experience Mike playing solo or with the other members of his 4 piece band egging him on is to see why one reviewer declared him ‘soaked in soul & burnt in blues’.
