We’re going to let the singers do the talking.

First past the post is last year’s Naomi Mellis, back by popular demand. She has this to say:

“Hi, my name is Naomi and I am a self taught musician! I play many instruments but will be on acoustic guitar and vocals for Wool @ Junction 13. I’m excited to bring both of my passions of music and crafting together, as I feel I can express my true self through both. I’ll be playing acoustic versions of pop songs through the ages…I can’t wait to see you there!” Performing slots: Saturday & Sunday 12midday-12.45; 1.15-2pm

Next up is Katie Brigham, the sister of one of our exhibitors, Amber Brigham, from Tufting Around, with her stage name of Katiella. Performing slots: Saturday & Sunday 11.15-11.45

“Hi everyone, my name is Katiella and I’m a recent graduate training at BIMM University in Manchester in Vocal Performance. I have always loved singing and my main inspirations are Etta James, Ariana Grande and Scout Niblett. My favourite genres to sing are RnB, Pop and Soul which my set will consist of today and in my spare time I love to write and produce original music. I’m so excited to share my sound with you all at the J13 Wool Exhibition 2024. Thank you.”

Next up is Maddie Mackenzie, the daughter of Jackie Mackenzie who set up Pink Sisters & Misters, the self-help cancer support group in Staffordshire. She’s also a Manchester trained songbird. Performing slots: Saturday: 2.15 – 2.45pm; Sunday: 3.30-4pm

“I’m Maddie and I’m currently studying Musical Theatre at the Arden School of Theatre in Manchester! I’ve always loved singing, and all things to do with performing. The stage has always been my happy place and as well as writing a few of my own songs, I enjoy adding my own vibe to song covers. I sing all sorts of styles and genres, but mostly musical theatre and pop as that’s what I’m most familiar with.”

And last, but definitely not least, Helena Northcote with Robert Hazle, up from London and bringing to life The Shows We Used to Know with a compilation of musical cabaret from Noel Coward, George & Ira Gershwin and Cole Porter. Helena is the daughter of Hilary and Hugh Stafford Northcote of former St Bede’s School (at Bishton Hall) fame, returning to the family home of The Heritage in whose grounds Wool@J13 2024 is being held. We are looking forwards to welcoming Helena and Robert to the stage. You can read more about Helen’s story here – Digital Newspaper & Magazine Subscriptions
