OSBORNCatchy and clever but never cloying, pulled along by Osborn's plaintive and affecting voice, Come On Folks, Settle Down is a genuine, wistful treat for anyone finding themselves past thirty and seeking a soundtrack to a good brew.- The Quietus HIBBETTIndie legend MJ Hibbett returns to the Festival at the perfect time as his band, The Validators, are releasing a new album on or around this date.MJ plays touching, hilarious, intelligent and interesting, songs telling stories about himself, friends, places and dinosaurs.Sometimes all of these things in one song. LOCKYER'I like singing songs and doing things that make people laugh. Sometimes people give me money. Whether it's money for a cd, money to keep singing or money to be quiet is of no consequence. It's still money.I have gigged all over in all sorts of places including variety and cabaret nights, music and comedy gigs, school assemblies, churches, radio, bars, clubs and people's living rooms...and once for the queue in the local chemist.'
