Isabella is a singer-songwriter wise beyond her years, with a voice as sweet as it is powerful, bristling with youthful enthusiasm and an emotional maturity that would not see her out of place amongst the greats, Completed by playing both acoustic guitar and piano, she is a prolific and skilled songwriter with a style that is very much her very own.
From being the youngest artist to play a live 'Under The Apple Tree session' for Bob Harris, Isabella has gone on to perform at some of the most iconic music venues across the country, along with many of the biggest festivals including Black Deer and Cornbury.
2023 has seen Isabella invited to open for The Who, being the sole support at the O2 Arena London along with three outdoor shows as part of their 'The Who Hits Back' tour around the UK. Isabella also supported US singer-songwriter Nell Bryden for twelve shows as she toured the UK along with three shows for Jools Holland and three more scheduled for late 2023.
"Isabella is one of the most refreshing new talents I have heard in a long time. The originality of her song writing is complemented by a true, clear voice and her warm on-stage personality. The sky's the limit for her."

Wes Finch is a midlands based singer, guitarist and songwriter with a passion for poetry and a good song.
Fronting roots ensemble 'The Dirty Band' for many years, Wes has also recorded various solo EPs and albums, most notably 2015's acclaimed 'Awena'.
In 2017, Wes' side project 'The Rude Mechanicals' released their first album 'Exit, Pursued by Bear', taking words from Shakespeare and setting them to new folk and classical inspired tunes.
Since first performing at Tittensor, supporting Dar Williams, Wes has become a firm favourite and it's always a pleasure to have him back onstage at A500.
"...a welcome and singular addition to the list of newbloods reinvigorating British folk music...Non-trad acoustic roots delivered with an edgy, risk-taking sonic boldness"

A500 Music aim to present quality live music in a friendly and intimate environment.
We seat our audience at tables in a cabaret style and because we always hope to be near capacity, we allocate seating to our guests according to when they purchased their tickets.
By inviting you to bring your own drink, we are making the evening an inexpensive as well as enjoyable experience.
Unfortunately drinking glasses will no longer be available on the night but we will still be providing free hot drinks.
We are currently talking to artists and putting together our program of music for next year so stay tuned for exciting news of acts old and new who will be coming to Fulford in 2024

"I've played the A500 a couple of times over the last few years and it never fails to deliver. The vibe and energy is exactly what a performer needs. It's such a lovely venue to play, it's a listening room and the audience really get it!!!"
