More about the artists:

Chuck SJ: Chuck SJ is a queer DIY Folk punk musician / activist. Often traveling throughout the UK and Europe, chuck firmly believes in breaking the barrier between audience and performer.

A Honky-Tonk of Our Own

Ren Stedman: Singing thought provoking biographical lyrics set to a brash folk punk melody, Ren Stedman can be found singing songs from the heart until the last ember of the campfire fizzles out. Having started out by finding his feet on the grassroots festival scene, Ren has toured up and down the country and across Europe carrying his guitar and a repertoire of songs compared to “a bloody good punk band distilled down into one bloke and an acoustic guitar”. A fierce, fable wielding force of acoustic punk poetry, Ren takes influence in writing lyrics that hit you hard from stories of life, love and political change.
