After two pandemic-enforced fallow years, we're delighted to announce the return of our RSD Live event on Sunday 24th April.

We'll be presenting an extended afternoon of great live music at The Royal Oak and we can reveal this year's bumper crop!

Emily Barker - The Australian singer-songwriter is one of our most capped performers, with a string of acclaimed solo and collaborative projects to her name. Previously named Americana UK Artist of the Year, her 2020 album 'A Dark Murmuration of Words' received four-star reviews from Mojo and Uncut, while new album 'Room 822' was recorded entirely in quarantine in Australia with her partner Lukas Drinkwater.

Reuben's Daughters - the new sunny psych-pop project from Port Erin's Reuben Myles Tyghe, whose debut album 'Mami Wata' is being released on French label Microcultures Records.

Nick Harper - The inimitable Wiltshire bard's latest album 'Phantastes' was a feat of mythological alt-folk. Playing tracks from that and other favourites from his storied career.

Vertaal - Vertaal's Ajit Gill & Theo Howarth share a love of groove & improvisation, forming musical ideas traversing spiritual nu-jazz, Dilla-esque hip-hop, broken beat & neo-soul. The band have supported the likes of Mark Giuliana and Richard Spaven and have been tipped as "ones to watch" by the venerable Jazz Re:Freshed.

Carsick - The Salisbury four-piece's punk energy has made them a hit on stages across the South West, while both of their early singles have been picked up by Radio 1 and 6 Music.

Ann Liu Cannon - Formerly of this parish, singer-songwriter Ann Liu is already drawing crowds in the capital and her debut EP was produced by the legendary Ethan Johns.

Ed Witcomb - The local troubadour brings his band for a pandemic-delayed set.
