Band: Zoe Schwarz Blue Commotion
Band: plus support from Maddie Morris

Vibrant and melodic, funky rocking blues featuring Hammond organ, drums, guitar, and vocals.  Zoe Schwarz Blue Commotion refresh the blues genre with eclectic arrangements, virtuosic playing, and vocal prowess.  Expect an exciting live set based around rootsy original songs, strong catchy riffs and exciting grooves; they mix old-school tradition with contemporary verve and sophistication.

Maddie Morris: Whether they’re turning a centuries-old ballad on its head or writing something new, Maddie places their focus on drawing out true meaning rather than being true to tradition. Their debut studio album, Skin, (release in February 2024) is a beautifully crafted collection of songs which amplifies the stories of those often marginalised by society. Passionately political, yet gently understated, this is music that deftly treads the path between art and activism.
