On Monday 17th November, 5 acts from the University of Southampton will be playing at the Bridge. The i Sessions, ran by the Independent newspaper, will be for charity, with all proceeds going to ABF, The Soldiers Charity, and The Veteran Fund.
The acts include:
Kaleigh Ramchand, a pop singer who covers some powerful piano accompanied pop.
Danny and Amelia, a brand new act. After taking some time out from performing live separately, met through Surge radio, and are now performing as an acoustic duo. Judging by Amelia’s great vocals in the past, their something to look forward to!
Glass Canyon, who have been around since 2012 (previously under the name “The Fever Dream”). They float between indie-rock, and noise-pop. Their hooks and melodies are so catchy it’ll be in your head for Admission on the door is £3, or £2 on guest list.
Tommy Hardman, a solo act who’s been playing for a few years, inspired by Matt Corby and Keaton Henson. Plays both original covers and imaginative covers. His raw approach to song writing comes through in a lot of his emotional songs.
The Bumbleberry Folk Collective will be offering something different to the other four acts, A flute, guitar, fiddle and cajun!
Shortly after the event, which will be filmed by SUSUtv, videos of the acts will feature on the Independent’s website – where, the public will vote for their favourite, amongst acts from Universities across the country. The finalists, will go through to a live final in Manchester, and the winners will get a day in the recording studio, and festival tickets.
The i Sessions is in The Bridge in SUSU on Monday 17th November at 7.30pm, Tickets are £2 for the guest list and £3 on the door, and all proceeds go to charity.
