On A Wire at Dart Music Festival – raising funds for The Umbrella Foundation

On A Wire – a rock/soul/folk duo originating in Sussex, with an eclectic range of influences that include Patsy Cline, Shovels and Rope, Nina Simone, The White Stripes, The Civil Wars, and many more.

On A Wire…

…are Hayley Slatter and Chris Keats, a duo from Sussex who explain themselves best in song.

With sets that range from ethereal heartbreak to defiant, toe tapping hooks, On A Wire continue to evolve their unique sound and style.

A busy gig and writing schedule in 2013 has showcased influences as diverse as Ella Fitzgerald, Daughter, Patsy Cline, Skip James and The White Stripes ensuring audiences are treated to a suitably rounded performance.

Growing support throughout London and the Southeast has led On A Wire to the studio in recent weeks with excitement building for their debut EP. Having built their fan base this year, On A Wire are planning to release their originals EP this summer.

This will be alongside a charity covers EP to raise money and awareness for The Umbrella Foundation in Nepal where they have just spent three months volunteering and teaching music.

Because listening to music at Dart Music Festival is FREE – but running it is not! – we have to charge for the Programme. 
The sales revenue is VITAL to the continuation of the Festival – thank you for understanding.
