Orfila are a UK country band consisting of siblings Abi, Louise and Matt Orfila from Folkestone in Kent. They released their debut album “Writing on the Wall” in 2013 to positive reviews and played the main stage at the Gibraltar Music Festival (one of Europe’s biggest music events) alongside acts such as The Script, Rita Ora, Roger Hodgson (Supertramp), Tony Hadley (Spandau Ballet), John Newman, James Arthur, Maxi Priest, Scouting For Girls, Reef, Ella Eyre and Newton Faulkner. 2016 saw the band gain major success by being chosen by the world famous Yamaha Music London to play the Big Entrance Stage at the prestigious Country To Country music festival at The O2 Arena in London. The international festival is devoted to country music with many top artists from the USA appearing in the line-up including Carrie Underwood, Little Big Town, Kacey Musgraves and Eric Church. The band is now officially recognised as Yamaha Music supported artists.
The first single from "Never Slowin' Down", their seecond album. reached the top 10 of the UK Country Chart and was premiered on BBC Radio Kent. In September Orfila opened for The Stereophonics, Heather Small, The Fratellis and Jess Glynne at the Gibraltar Music Festival and then toured Nashville, playing at venues that country music legends Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton and Alan Jackson had all previously played.
Dave "Shep" Sheperd
Dave “Shep!” Sheperd plays American music drawn from his family roots in northern Virginia, as well as performing songs written by friends, relatives, and him. You can expect a range of tempos and styles – from foot-stomping banjo through ballads to 12-string sing-along anthems, often accompanied by a catchy dance beat.
The Paul Dunton Orchestra
Singer-songwriter, Paul Dunton leads his own unique cross-over orchestra providing an atmospheric fusion of alternative and pop with a classical twist. The Orchestra performs Paul’s own compositions and a varied selection of uniquely arranged standards from a wide range of artists. The line up of 8 violins, 4 cellos, flute, bass and percussion accompanies Paul on vocals and piano, joined by his lead vocalists, Charlotte Andrew and Poppy Raine. Paul and his Orchestra regularly perform at concerts, festivals and private events throughout the UK and internationally, including headlining the Theatrium Wilhelmstraße Festival in Wiesbaden, Germany and an 8 state tour of the USA which culminated in a spectacular roof-top performance on top of the New York Strand Hotel. Increased attention and success led to the orchestra being featured on BBC Radio 2 by Joan Armatrading with interviews and airplay of one of Paul’s songs, ‘Don’t Forget’. This led to Paul supporting Joan Armatrading on five occasions during her recent UK tours. Paul's brand new album 'Clearly Invisible' which features the Orchestra throughout the 14 tracks will be available for purchase on the night.
