"RITA BRAGA is a singer, performer and multi-instrumentalist from Lisbon, based in Porto. She performs solo and sometimes collaboratively an unusual repertoire of songs in over ten languages, as well as original compositions and soundtracks. Over the last decade she has toured across Europe, the US and in Brazil. She also has a background in the visual arts doing illustration and animation, hosts unpredictable cabarets, graduated in Music Sciences. From time to time, she receives insight from cartoon personalities in her dreams (such as Bugs Bunny) on how to conduct her career.

Sam Slatcher is a folk singer-songwriter living in Durham, North East England. Sam's songwriting weaves together catchy guitar and piano melodies with gentle vocals which tell the stories of the people and places he has come across. His music is inspired by his research into what brings people together across boundaries of race, background and geography - and the art of building bridges instead of walls. 

“An artist with a quiet, infectious passion for humanity and the gift to articulate it to his audience." (Steve Pledger, singer/songwriter).
