The Londoners will be joined by blues singer Jamie N Commons, who is fresh from a summer of acclaimed festival performances throughout Europe.
Leaders of the British folk-rock scene, Noah & the Whale, will be headlining the Saturday with support from Irish native Conor O’Brien aka Villagers, Daughter and special guest Lucy Rose.
“I’m so excited to be hosting Mencap’s Little Noise Sessions for the seventh year running! What’s more, we’re back at St John-at-Hackney Church, which inspired a truly electric atmosphere for fans and artists alike last year – there really is nothing more extraordinary than seeing big artists perform in such an intimate and beautiful venue.”
