Other recent additions to the bill include The Milk, Norwegian multi-instrumentalist Bernhoft, soulful vocalist Avery Sunshine, Brooklyn-based instrumental three-piece Moon Hooch and the hotly-tipped pianist and singer Kandace Springs, whose new album will be released on Blue Note later on this year.
