Sunny, less than 5% chance of rain, Maximum Temperature 15 °C.
Staying dry overnight not much cloud so temperatures could drop low enough for a little frost. Still less than 5% chance of rain. Minimum Temperature 3 °C.
After a chilly start, it will be a fine day with spells of strong sunshine. With winds becoming even lighter, it will feel pleasantly warm in the sun. Maximum Temperature 16 °C.
Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:
Largely fine and sunny. Chilly at night but becoming increasingly warm by day. Probably turning somewhat cloudier through Thursday but it should remain mainly dry.
Lenny Savage – Bristol
She’s only done the one album that I’m aware of but she still gigs regularly mostly around the Bristol and Avon area.
Quantrelle has 11 eclectic tracks with a retro feel, broadly similar to Caro Emerald. Track 4 “Satellites”
Kiera Osment – North Devon
Of course, immensely talented teenagers are two a penny round these parts, but then again Devon just has more than it’s fair share of talent.
Spyplane – Kent
Sherrie Tappenden has a voice that just gets me right. It’s not perfect in the way of a polished popstar but I know that she will take that as the compliment it is intended to be. J’Adore is a live recording and the band took delight in switching to reggae just for long enough to make her giggle at the end.
Holly Morwenna – Devon
She’s from the other side of Devon but we won’t hold that against her. She’s a big hit on BBC introducing which is where I first heard her. I am going to play “Open Up The Sky” for you.
Galley Beggar – London
They sound like they should be from Glastonbury or something with their modern take on folk. Outlandish Knight is a traditional folk song with many versions including Steeleye Span’s version titled Lady Isabell and the Elf Knight. This one finishes with a great bit that should get your feet moving.
