“I like my father’s style, my style and Kat’s style” Mud Morganfield.
Fronted by the American vocalist and former Columbia recording artist Kathleen Pearson, the 5 piece band redefine the boundaries and definitions of Blues, adding a modern spin yet retaining the historical elements of a genre of music steeped in tradition.
Los Angeles born Kat has not only a magnificent voice (like chocolate poured over hot coals) but also
the heartbeat of a musical style that originated in America and is loved by the world.
You may have seen Kathleen's face on the cover of ID magazine...Or maybe you would have heard her voice singing to a standing ovation crowd at Montreaux Festival or guesting on the hit single of D:Ream's "Things Can Only Get Better". She has shared the stage with Mud Morganfield (Muddy Waters Jr), Jason Robello, Tony Remy, Lil Jimmy Reed, Chicago Blues Queens Peaches Staten and Deitra Farr to name a few.
Previous performances include the prestigious Montreaux Jazz Festival, Ronnie Scott’s, London Blues Festival, The Great British R&B Festival and Shepherds Bush Empire.
Kat & Co's debut album “I Kat The Blues” was released in April 2013. Featuring guest appearances by Mud Morganfield, Lil’ Jimmy Reed and Chad Strenz, the CD is now available for download everywhere.

Siren & Strings http://www.sirenandstrings.comsols.co.uk/
A beautiful mix of laid-back chill, with a unique edge of passion and spirit, Siren and Strings are an acoustic covers trio performing an eclectic selection of songs. With Neill's sublime guitar playing, Abigail's distinctive emotion-loaded vocals and Ian's musical talent & verve adding 3 saxophones (Alto, Tenor and Baritone), a Clarinet and extra vocal harmonies (oh yes and various shakers and general madness) these three talents combine to create something different, unique, fresh and engaging.
