Fred Clark is an acoustic singer/songwriter from Maidstone, Kent. He performs with incredible energy and writes with an emotive, vibrant style mixing pop, folk and surfy vibes to create a truly exciting sound.

Josh is a talented musician from Brighton. He performs with an incredible intensity that transfixes audiences. Having performed in various bands over the years and toured the country he is set to provide some upbeat acoustic tunes on the stage at South of England Show.   Mixing pop with folk and rock, taking inspiration from John Mayer, The Lumineers and many Nashville bands the music he produces is truly wonderful to hear.

HighTide have gained momentum and a following across Kent and beyond, writing original folk-pop numbers and creating blistering unique covers. They perform genuinely exciting and intimate gigs, and have a unique and highly approachable rapport with their audiences.  They believe that every show should have the same impact, and therefore approach every gig with the same unrivalled energy and charm.
