GIG ANNOUNCEMENT Fragile Lucy & Friends Sat 18/3/23


We’re happy to announce another great night of local music with our very own Fragile Lucy and friends!

Featuring: Anita Foxall, Alex Tiniuc, Cat Elliott, Hummingbird Sings AND Fragile Lucy join us for an evening of music and poetry


Anita is a Southampton based poet, but she is not from this world, she is Plutonian. She spends her days with numbers and her evenings with words, poeting about with her poetry collective Ghost River; or as Interesting Wallpaper’s poet. Because she loves the company of poetry and poets she also hosts a poetry open mic in Southampton, Write a Note. Being a curious Plutonian, she loves writing about humanity and its essence.


Alex Tiniuc is a producer and multi-instrumentalist based in Southampton, Hampshire. Within Southampton, he is best known for his instrumental performances on the Chapman Stick. He has played at the Hands of Love event at MAST, has competed in The Hobbit’s 2022 Battle of the Bards, and regularly frequents open mics around town. He has worked with well-known local acts such as Fragile Lucy & Issy Somers, but also musicians based in Indonesia, France & the United States.


Cat Elliott is a bit of a genre crossing wild card! Blending acoustic indie pop with alternative folk, her style is difficult to pigeon-hole.
A quirky performer with an unusual voice, who swings from powerful and energetic one moment to vulnerable and reflective the next.
With a unique style of writing and playing songs
she’ll make you smile one minute with her witty observations on life, then move you with an emotional song about misplaced loyalty.
Whatever the mood, her catchy and lyrical songs tell stories in a way you’re likely to remember.


Gail Allen (aka Hummingbird Sings) is a Southampton based vocalist, lyricist and aspiring ukulelist. She writes from the heart about love, loss and a while spectrum of human emotion.

Gail has been playing ukulele for just under a year and has recently composed her first ukulele song about the loss of her Dad, “Feels Like Forever”. She also worked with Fragile Lucy in 2021 to record another original song for her Dad, “Thinking of You”.

Gail’s vibrant and colourful personality match her huge passion for music and creativity. One of her favourite things in life is reaching people with her heartfelt lyrics and catchy ear-worm melodies.


Get ready for something a bit different. With her funky flamenco style, indie, geek-rock tunes, quirky song lyrics and an awesome voice. Fragile Lucy armed with a tiny instrument and a massive personality really is one of most unique musical acts out there. Her most popular songs “Vegetarian Ham” and “Techno Teddy” are a big hit at festivals and gigs. You may of seen her busking around the South Coast or playing online in recent times. Her latest single “Crazy Bout You” has been featured on BBC Upload and other local radio stations. If you haven’t heard this ukulele wizard before you’re gonna be blown away. Always a fun filled, energetic performance from a truly talented and inspirational artist!
