In 2007 chance encounters on the Isle of Wight brought together pianist Blue Brown, guitarist Sunny Brown, bass player Ollie Ducie and violin player Nik Potts to form the folk rock band Lucid.

Four albums and over a thousand concerts later, Lucid’s musical journey continues. Combining their individual writing and musical talents they produce a sound which blends stunning vocals with rich melodies.

Tours to Germany, France and Switzerland followed.

A couple of  highlights for Lucid were when they filled a 400 seat theatre in 2013 to launch their fourth album ‘If By Chance’.  Together with a professional DVD of the concert, these showcase not only their individual talents but also those of many additional musicians coming together to enrich Lucid’s unique musical sound.

2014 was a particularly busy and productive year.  Not only did they tour Canada for a month, playing 20 gigs in four provinces, but they staged their most ambitious UK concert to date.  This saw thirty people at a Lucid gig – on stage, that is!  The group sold out the 600 seats of the largest theatre on the Isle of Wight to an audience that travelled nationwide for the evening.  The stage was crowded with not only soloists on Cello, Flute and Sax, but also the string section of the Island’s Symphony Orchestra, and a male voice choir providing backing vocals.

Lucid released what is considered to be their best album to date late 2017. They were fortunate to have the album mixed and produced by Simon Hanhart, since then lucid have graced some highly prestigious festival stages and venues and are working toward a new album in 2020.

 

One not to be missed under any circumstances – John Hackett

Newhaven-based Dandelion Charm combine prog, folk and rock influences into a luxurious blend of intricate harmonies, soaring melodies, superb musicianship and heartfelt lyrics. Imagine Fleetwood Mac meets Opeth and CSN meets Yes. Very much a personal as well as a creative partnership Dandelion Charm sprang to life in 2015, the brainchild of John and Clare Fowler performing as a duo, trio and with a full band. As a live act Dandelion Charm have been wowing audiences, with slots at The Real Music Club, The Cambridge Rock Festival, Cropredy Fringe, The Big Green Cardigan and Purbeck Valley Folk Festival.
