Phil Pethybridge, artist development tutor, said: 'There is so much raw talent at the Access to Music college, and the showcase is a great opportunity to show this off, along with some fantastic examples of songwriting.'

Among the acts performing on the night is Alison MacKinnon, who in the past year has had the opportunity to perform at Glastonbury and Latitude and is currently working on her debut EP to be released this summer.

The Sound Of Sight, also known as Paul Hubbard, will be performing his music that is said to take you back to the 1960s with lulling vocals and euphoric melodies.

Multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter Abigail Blake is also part of the line-up with her music that is led by emotion and incorporates a range of styles and lyric techniques, as is Jos Brunwin with his skilled guitar playing combined with insightful lyrics.

Singer/songwriter Fran Davey is performing original music with her unique soul voice, and Curtis Cronin will be playing in a range of styles.
