ROARING SUCCESS AT EDINBURGH FESTIVAL!!!!* * * * * FIVE STAR (TOP RATING) EDINBURGH REPORTER* * * * EDINBURGH HERALD* * * * THREE WEEKS PICK OF THE FRINGE - MERVYN STUTTER REVIEW Richard Digance is a rare performer in that he's respected by comedians for his original material and by musicians for being an accomplished performer/guitarist. His loyal following confirms his wide appeal, from the younger generation attracted by both his guitar playing and the fact he has inspired many modern-day performers, to the super-loyal who have followed Richard since the time he had his own ITV series and even further when he started out in folk clubs. His evergreen career has been acknowledged through numerous awards within both the music and entertainment industries, from a BAFTA Nomination as a TV entertainer to a Gold Award from The British Academy of Composers and Songwriters. He is included in The Virgin Anthology of Songwriters for his important contribution to British comedy songwriting. Richard Digance is also a world-acclaimed poet. His poetry is published around the world, from The University of British Columbia, Canadian syllabus for English; Fearndon Teaching Aids, Illionois, USA, The Oxford University Anthology of Poetry, The West Indies Schools syllabus and more recently in Australia, Swaziland and in Cape Town, South Africa as part of English First Additional Language Grade 8 Reader. He has survived all trends with his two hour one-man show, an entertainer who many younger comedians, including Ross Noble, claim as one of their major influences. On his own ITV Saturday-night show Richard has played guitar with Queen's Brian May, The Moody Blues, Status Quo, Chris deBurgh, Juan Martin, Marc Cohn and Elkie Brooks.

More recently he has developed into an influential figure of UK songwriting; crossing barriers between punk, psych-pop and English folk, inspiring a generation of successful home-grown artists. Chris has played shows around the world with artists such as Ben Folds, Elbow, The National, Divine Comedy, Bellowhead, Walkmen, Frank Turner, Delgados, British Sea Power, Arab Strap, Carter USM, Marcus Brigstocke, Madrugada, Robyn Hitchcock, Stewart Lee, Iain Sinclair and many others. He has played piano for Tom Robinson, Jim Bob (Carter USM) and Frank Turner.

Chris has also performed on the fourth plinth at Trafalgar Square for Anthony Gormley’s One & Other project; re-soundtracked live cult Japanese film Battle Royale for Soho’s Other Cinema and composed music on commission for the Natural History Museum and the World Health Organisation. In 2011, Chris took his one-man show Disobedience to Edinburgh Fringe Festival, singing new versions of A.A. Milne’s 1920s childrens’ poems. In 2012, his blog entry criticising the Olympics Closing Ceremony, Not Just Shit But Dangerous brought 65,000 readers to this site in two days. Chris T-T’s 9th album The Bear, recorded with his band lineup Hoodrats, was released by Xtra Mile Recordings in October 2013.
  4. "One of the most gifted singers and writers in contemporary Blues" Mojo Magazine Ian Siegal has won the following British Blues Awards: Best Male Vocalist 2011 & 2012 & 2013 Best Acoustic Artist 2012 Best Contemporary Blues Album 2013 Best Blues Song 2013 Support act is the wonderful Christy DeHaven. Ian Siegal last played on the Isle of Man in 2007 at the Big Wheel Blues Festival. It was a memorable night as Siegal’s forte is playing to an audience. He takes command of the stage in a way very few artists alive today can match. Sweat, passion, humour, balls-to-the-wind slide guitar and a soul-infused voice big enough to fell trees! It has won him an ever-growing following of fans (and a horde of female admirers). Multiple award winning Blues-man, Ian Siegal will be playing at the Royal Albert Hall in London the night before his forthcoming visit to the Isle of Man.
