V-SEssions – SAT 5TH DECEMBER 2020
Brit-pop space rock!
Skewwhiff are post-punk, slightly-ska, mostly-indie with a slice of Brit-Pop. Solid bass and drums provide the bedrock that is enhanced by a strata of insistent guitar. Their raw and vibrant sound is tempered by the lightest of touch that is singer Hannah. She illuminates to the darkness, creating a multi-textural whole that makes you want to tap your feet.
Skewwhiff gig constantly (or did before the pandemic) and are regulars at festivals around the country. Their first LP release, Nice Little Upper, was released to critical acclaim in 2014. The long-awaited follow up, Cancelled Rearranged came out in 2019. Don’t miss their V-Session!

Hennesea comes from the Swedish word Hennesea which means hers. Anna Watts and Jane Devereaux started playing together as a duo in 2011. Their first release, an EP called Lost for Words featured six original songs written by Anna. Soon, Anna and Jane were joined by Mark Keene on guitar and Garry Low on drums and percussion. Both have been with the band ever since. Shine On was released in July 2013 with six tunes that added a little rock influence. In 2016 Ralph Tittley joined Hennesea on bass guitar and backing vocals. Since then, the band has played many gigs and festivals including the BBC stage at Lakefest, Mappfest, Sunshine Festival and Cwm Fest. They are currently in the process of recording their next album which will include the singles The Same Tune and Faisons Comme Si.
Anna, Mark and Garry were joined by a plethora of guest musicians and the band moved in a new musical direction, both folky and bluesy. The third EP, One Fine Day, was released in the Summer of 2014.
The first full album came in 2015. Book of Life features a baker’s dozen of eclectic ensemble pieces that range from the winsome title track to the magnificent Light Above the Sea. The latter features Martin Furey of the High Kings on backing vocals and flute.
