Joe Solo is an award-winning musician, writer, poet, activist, broadcaster and washing machine engineer from Scarborough.In October 2016 Joe was awarded the ‘Outstanding Songwriting’ prize at Yorkshire Gig Guide Grassroots Music Awards for his work on the album ‘Never Be Defeated’ telling the stories of the men and women of Hatfield during the 1984-85 Miner’s Strike.
Ronnie Miller
Ronnie is not your traditional ‘Folkie’. He first picked up a guitar when he was around 12 years old. "I picked it up and just immediately fell in love – I’ve played guitar almost every single day of my life since”. And it shows. In a career spanning over 40 years he’s played just about every kind of music you can imagine: Folk, Rock, Pop, Country, Dance, Jazz – he even spent a season in Panto, sitting in the orchestra pit. It all adds up to an accomplished style that’s been informed by all the music he’s listened to and performed over the years. About 15 years ago he decided to return to his roots and since then has become a highly admired and respected figure in the Folk scene. He is also a highly talented songwriter with songs such as the ‘The Ballad of Bobby Melville’ and the heart-wrenching ‘A Letter too Soon’.
