Layla Tutt 7:30 – 8:00
Oystercatcher 8:20 – 8:50
Oystercatcher is a music collective based in Manchester. At its core are vocals and bass duo Caitlin Laing and Tom Chapman, but their philosophy is to make each live per-formance unique by constantly varying line-ups and ar-rangements. They use their freedom as arrangers to explore different soundworlds in the studio, braving unorthodox tech-niques to create recordings that have a separate identity to their live performances.
