On Friday 4 June, 28 of the best acts from across the region were selected to perform on the BBC Introducing stage at the Wychwood Festival at Cheltenham Racecourse.
Four of the ten acts put forward by BBC Hereford & Worcester were singled out to perform on the Friday night - including Wes Dance, Barbarix, Roundstone and The Roving Crows (pictured).
The seven counties that surround Gloucestershire each put forward 10 acts - with the final line-up chosen by 6 Music's Tom Robinson, Radio 1's Bethan Elfyn, The Independent's Elisa Bray and Wychwood's Graeme Merifield.
This was the first time that a number of regional BBC Introducing areas had joined forces to give a number of emerging artists their debut festival gig.
As well as the opportunity to play on stage, the artists were featured in a download album made available by the Independent newspaper. The musicians were also played heavily on BBC radio.
The artists put forward by the Friday Session were Zang Tang, Barbarix, Da Vinci, Dastards, Frantik, Rhondda, Roundstone, The Transcendence Experience, We Killed Rasputin and Wes Dance.
The Roving Crows were formed in 2007 and have toured extensively and successfully throughout England, France and Ireland.
Their music is funky and upbeat and features guitar, vocals, fiddle, drums, double and electric bass. They certainly pulled out all of the stops at tonight's gig.
Their roots are in traditional Irish music, although they do have a twist of rock, funk, dance with a strong driving rhythm.
What are these?
