This duo make electronic music incorporating theremin and a harp. Al Johnson and Ozlem Simsek have played gigs at Cities and towns all over Essex, this will be their Chelmsford debut and one of the most musically interesting bookings we have encountered at Hot Box

Margate duo Lunatraktors create the perfect blend of modern and traditional Folk music. They incorporate live loops, body percussion, tap dance and stunning harmonies to create a unique take on a traditional style. This group are due to headline one of the stages at the Leigh Folk Festival this year so come catch them at our intimate venue before you see them on the big stages.

First album as manifesto: This Is Broken Folk. A clap of thunder over the often lukewarm waters of contemporary folk.François Gorin, Télérama
Another very exciting first performance at Hot Box. Dee Avis not content with being in one of the Uks best garage rock bands Muertos (playing at Hot Box later this year) or touring the world as part of Las Guadalupes (played at Hot Box earlier this year). Dee has created an entirely new project featuring her violin and some interesting sound experiments. Expect music to engage, entertain and enlighten.
