L I N E U P :
KRAKOW STREET BAND
Krakow Street Band is a proud representative of the city of Cracow and Poland’s music scene for listeners from Poland and abroad. Since the group’s formation in 2014 they keep a steady pace, gaining popularity with each month. Right now they’re touring with their third album, "Going Away", based entirely on original material. It consists of 11 lively but unpretentious songs, neatly balancing between contemporary folk, jazz and blues. The beautiful acoustics of Radio Kraków's studio allowed to capture nuance in the music of this lively ensemble, which has evolved quite a bit since their street beginnings. "Going Away" recieved a nomination for the Blues/Country category of 2019 "Fryderyk" award, the most prestigous music award in Poland.
Kraków Street Band came to life in the spring of 2014, and at first the band’s whole activity was confined in the inviting space of Cracow’s main square. Soon enough, an idea appeared to record the band’s first album – funded by means of an extremely successful crowdfunding campaign, finished with 170% of the planned amount. And this was just the beginning... Then, the band got to the finals of Must Be The Music, a talent show with millions of viewers, with excellent opinions from the jury on all stages. In the annual survey of Poland’s most renowned blues magazine "Twój Blues", Kraków Street Band won "Discovery of the year" 2014 and "Band of the year" 2015. In 2015 they released their second, exceptional album recorded in Radio Kraków - "Dedicated To Jerzy Wójcik", honoring the memory of Poland's first bluegrass musician. Songs from the repertoire of Little Ole Opry, Wójcik's band, were recorded in new versions by Kraków Street Band with Krystyna Święcicka-Wójcik and guests. In march 2018, after winning the Polish Blues Challenge, Kraków Street Band represented Poland on the most prestigious Blues competition in Europe – European Blues Challenge in Hell (Norway). A month later, individual musicians were awarded prizes in 2017’s Twój Blues survey – Łukasz Wiśniewski and Tomek Kruk were voted “vocalist of the year” and “guitarist of the year”, respectively. In January 2019 "Going Away" was nominated for "Fryderyki" award in the Blues/Country category. And all this comes as no surprise – Kraków Street Band’s performances burst with passion and raw happiness, and the musicians themselves… see for yourself in their self-made music video “Fluke”!

This is music for those who prefer silence. Gentle acoustic sound inspired by the 60s Folk and Jazz classics.
It sounds old and new, happy and sad at the same time.
Listening to ZenBerry feels like coming back home.
SAM ROBINSON is a self-taught acoustic guitarist and singer. Born and raised in the industrial town of Kidderminster, England. He always had an interest in a large range of music, due to his musically inclined family.
"I took a natural interest in the acoustic guitar as my eldest brother was a musician from the time that I can remember. I was fascinated at its versatility and its ability to fill out an empty space with beautiful noise. I grew up in a very busy household, with 2 older brothers and a younger sister. Finding quiet time was difficult, however, when the house was empty, and my older brother would go out with his friends.. I would sneak into his room, unlock his cupboard, and be in awe of his acoustic guitar. This is when I made the decision that every opportunity I had I would sneak a little go at playing it. I eventually understood how to read tabulature notation, from a well written book, and from there the rest was history. I would constantly be back and forth picking up bits and pieces, until I eventually was ‘old enough’ to have my very first guitar. The rest as they say is history. I have since worked on/off as a part time musician, from busking, to gigging, to private parties, to small festivals and finally weddings. I particularly enjoy song writing, both for myself, and other musicians, and I take the opportunity to perform my own music wherever possible. I was in a band in the UK called ‘Good for Morale’, where you can find our music on Spotify, mostly written by myself. I had a great time in this band, and enjoyed some excellent airtime on BBC radio, but have since ventured to Cyprus, to pursue a ‘full-time’ career in musical entertainment. You can find me on facebook via ‘Hadrow entertainment Cyprus’."
