Singer/songwriter Minnie Birch mooches into Swindon next week to perform at the latest Lazy Sunday Afternoon acoustic sessions.

Minnie comes from Herefordshire, and she came seventh in the list of Buzzfeeds Brilliant British Songwriters To Discover.

Steve Cox, founder of the acoustic afternoon, said: "Minnie writes plaintive, dark, beautiful music about life, love adventures and fairy tales. She is winning over hearts one gig at a time.''

Tom is a musician, producer and ecologist who, through his music, gives information about meadows, grasses and the environment. He plays with a rig of synths, samplers and DJ decks or a stripped back acoustic act with guitar and occasional samples.
