Multi-instrumentalist/composer Ross Ainslie continues his artistic and personal journey with a full reprise of his acclaimed third album Sanctuary – channelling influences from his collaborative work with Treacherous Orchestra, India Alba and Jarlath Henderson, while reflecting on his path to sobriety – followed by tracks from his new solo release, Vana. His stellar accompanying line-up features Greg Lawson, Paul Towndrow, Steve Byrnes, James Lindsay, Hamish Napier and Fraser Stone.

Finnish electro-folk sextet Okra Playground (for whom ‘okra’ is an earthy pigment, not the tropical vegetable), combine vibrant three-part vocals with ancient and modern instrumentation – plucked zither and bowed lyre, synth and electric bass – in a new and exciting symbiosis.
