Dan Sealey returns to TwickFolk, less than a year since he made a huge impression supporting Black*Scarr. Dan started his career with folk rock band ‘Ocean Colour Scene’ touring the world and playing headline slots at major festivals for over a decade.
He co-founded the band ‘Merrymouth’ with Simon Fowler. Merrymouth released two critically acclaimed studio albums that  featured award winning musicians, John McCusker, Andy Cutting and even a guest appearance from Chas Hodges (Chas and Dave).

Dan went on to found the ‘Merrymaker’ project, making music about the big events that are going on in the world right now. A musical commentary on the times we are living in and an artistic push back.
Recently, Dan re-formed the legendary Music Hall double act ‘Cosmotheka’ with his father Dave. Rubbing shoulders with comedy giants like Gus Elan, Harry Champion, and the rest, they’ve picked up the trail first blazed by Dave and his late brother Al, leading to the great Music Halls of yore.

Now, Dan is taking his own show on the road. The show features music from all the bands he’s been involved with, the often hilarious stories he’s amassed along the way and new material from his upcoming album.

Linda Moylan is a London-based, Irish-born singer-songwriter. Originally hailing from Waterford, Linda’s family migrated to England in 1980s. A natural singer, songwriter and storyteller, her songs explore a wide array of themes from forgotten stories to her experiences of growing up in a tough Irish household near the East End of London docks.

Her 2018 EP ‘London Irish’ was recorded and produced by Gavin Glass in Orphan Studios, Dublin and received critical plaudits.

In 2020 Linda released a duet with the late, great folk legend Julie Felix – recorded and released just before the sad loss of Julie.

Linda’s second full album ‘The Merchant’, released in 2021, has a distinctly folk flavour and was produced by English folk royalty in the form of Show Of Hands’ Phil Beer. The album is a reflection of folk life today from the working class streets of London – a perspective that Linda is at home in and an authentic narrator of. It garnered some great reviews and plenty of airplay – including from several BBC shows.

Linda is currently working on her third album for release in 2023.
