Jack Boyd

Jack is an extraordinary singer/songwriter who has performed locally in and around Chichester as well as nationally at festivals including Glastonbury. His debut album was recently recorded at Ford Lane Studios with inputs from 13 local musicians. Jack’s lyrics are a uniquely powerful mix of poetry and storytelling that convey beauty, love, darkness, revenge, farce and comedy; set to music that includes a wide range of genres that Jack describes as “gutter jazz”.

Chris North – Storyteller

As a teenager, Chris. developed his drama interests and they’ve played an important part in his life ever since. He’s been a teacher, social worker and now runs his own creative arts company. Writing and telling stories has become increasingly significant to his work. Chris’ performance for Seven Up gives a glimpse of his other interests of psychology, myths and dreams.

Mike Jenkins is Sammy Saunders

He thinks it’s 1927 and no one has the heart to tell him it’s not. Meet Sammy Saunders, who appears to have wandered from the pages of history to tell you that a funny thing happened on his way to the forum. You might be surprised just how familiar his world is to you.

Picnic Checklist

Based in Chichester, England, Picnic are Sue O’Brien and Mike B Smith, musicians who create their own style of pop noir folk, combining lyrical beauty with acoustic/electronic sounds, to provide moments of melancholic and uplifting beauty, wrapped in retro styling.
