George Mann sings songs from the last century of labour and social activism in the USA. His own songs are powerful and funny takes on the state of the nation. He has shared stages with Pete Seeger, Utah Phillips and Faith Petric, among others, and his compilations have featured such folk legends as Tom Paxton, Utah Phillips, Billy Bragg and Holly Near. Visit his web site.

Listening to the songs of John Broomhall is like taking a draft of fresh air," Sue Jarvis once observed in Sydney's Sun Herald. John was born in the mining town of Broken Hill and his early albums reflect on the working life and landscape of Australia's outback. 

His songs (such as 'Time is a Tempest' which has been performed by Loosely Woven) have been recorded by Alan Scott, Penny Davies & Roger Ilott (who have also performed at Humph Hall), Vince Brophy, Wongawilli, The Loaded Dog and Gordon Bok among others. John is currently completing a collection of maritime songs 'Shorelines: Australian Songs of the Sea'.
