**TwoManTing** are a duo playing Sunshine Afro-roots featuring live looped bouncy African guitar licks, driving djembe, and songs sung in Krio – Jah's native tongue from Sierra Leone, played with a fusion of maringa, highlife and reggae.

They were formed in 2004, when Jon Lewis and Jah-man Aggrey were working together in world/dance band Le Cod Afrique, performing at the likes of WOMAD, Montreux Jazz Festival and Glastonbury.

Since then, as TwoManTing, they have taken their dynamic, uplifting West African rhythms and thought provoking lyrics throughout the UK on the festival circuit, including Glastonbury, the Secret Garden Party, Green Man, Big Green Gathering, Sunrise, Small World and Waveform.

They have supported Mali desert-blues legends, Tinariwen, and Muntu Valdo and are regularly featured on UK and US radio station*s.*

*“Brilliant – love this sound! If you want to get a bit of late summer, then get this in your ear-holes!”* - **Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music**

 There will be two 50 minute sets.
