The Eden Café serves up three acts on Friday February 10, with Siôn Russell Jones, The People’s String Foundation and Kola completing the line-up.

Siôn Russell Jones is a Welsh singer and songwriter with an infectious upbeat voice accompanied by intricate guitar melodies and unforgettable choruses.

Since releasing his debut album And Suddenly, Siôn has been heard on both regional and national radio stations. His music has been used regularly on Eastenders and Coronation Street, while his latest song Indestructible was championed on Craig Charles’ BBC Radio 2 show.

The People’s String Foundation fuse Eastern melodies, jazz, hip-hop and big beats to create original music with beautiful lyrics. They reinterpret their songs for each new audience, creating unique performances for each surrounding. 

The band, which includes violins, double bass and Cuban-inspired bassoon, has been touring extensively over the last two years with their debut album Making Waves.

Siôn Russell Jones and The People’s String Foundation will be joined by local band Kola. Fronted by Ryan Jones (of Hitchcock Rules and Grey Dog), the band have been building up a solid fan-base since releasing their first EP, Ruins. 

Their music, influenced by American folk with a distinctive British twist, has led them to play at several festivals including Camp Bestival, Port Eliot and the Eden Sessions.

Dan Ball, Eden Café Manager, said: “With such a packed bill, there’ll be something to suit everyone's musical tastes. This promises to be night to remember, so get here early and get ready to fall in love with new music.”

The gig takes place from 8pm until midnight. Tickets cost £4, or £3 for concessions and tickets bought from the café beforehand.

A selection of locally sourced beverages will be on offer throughout the night. Bread, dips and a choice of seasonal hot food will be available until 9:30pm.
