    Winners of the Yorkshire Gig Guide award for outstanding live band in 2014. Maia are taking a break from recording to play a string of dates to showcase some of the new material from their forthcoming album to be released in the Autumn.
    Yellowcake is a musical compound made up of I G Bramall and Sarah Sharp. Half brooding folk, half silly pop, half bad maths, it is an ongoing experiment exploring the perimeters of audience heart strings and tear ducts. Yellowcake accepts no liability for any emotion either caused or not caused during audio contact. YC does however accept compliments and sweeteners freely & is no stranger in dispensing them out too.
