The best things come in threes

NOT one, but three Eden Sessions for you this week. Dance and hip hop supremo Example, pictured, will headline a show on Saturday.

His latest album Playing In The Shadows has seen Example working with the industry's top dance producers, including Chase and Status, Faithless and Nero.

Example is currently working on an as yet untitled fourth studio album. Special guest support comes from recent No 1 act Rudimental.

Ambient jazz and electronica outfit Marconi Union will be playing on the Mediterranean Biome's Biotik stage.

Eden Sessions veteran Dante Gabriel will also be playing. The DJ has previously supported Coldplay and Faithless and played Eden's Main Stage supporting comedian Bill Bailey in 2008.

There will also be a host of up-and-coming local music on the Stage Right Stage, from Plymouth singer-songwriter and guitarist Aaron Douglas, to hip hop and drum and bass band Running Numbers, master of the dub, ska, hip hop and swing mash-up DJ Tenoshi and Falmouth-based drum and bass DJs Seraph and R4wLoop.

On Sunday, Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls will be headlining a day of folk at the Eden Sessions.

He will be joined by other trailblazers of the folk scene including indie-folk four-piece Stornoway, contemporary folk band Bellowhead, South West singer and violinist Seth Lakeman, the Mull Historical Society, otherwise known as Colin MacIntyre, and the acoustic sister act Staves. Britpop band Dodgy, best known for songs such as Good Enough and Staying Out For The Summer as well as the 1996 platinum-selling album Free Peace Sweet, will also be performing their new, critically acclaimed offerings on the Biotik stage in the Mediterranean Biome.

Electronic superstars Chase and Status, pictured, will be headlining an Eden Session on Wednesday. The London duo, otherwise known as Saul Milton and Will Kennard, are returning to Eden having headlined the sell-out Rumble In The Jungle show at the Project in May 2010.

They will be supported by London singer-songwriter and record producer Labrinth, inset, who is best known for his collaborations with Tinie Tempah, producing and featuring on hits such as Pass Out and Frisky. In the Mediterranean Biome, there will be music from T, otherwise known as Tom Dinsdale, on the Biotik stage, along with a set from Indian Queens, a collective that specialises in electro bass fuses with dub, dancehall and acid house.

On the Stage Right Stage, people will be able to see sets from DJ Tenoshi and Seraph and R4wLoop, as well as a special performance from the as yet unannounced winner of the this year's BBC Introducing competition.

There are still tickets left for the Sessions at a special price of £20 plus a £5 booking fee (excluding Plan B and Blink-182). To book, contact the Eden box office on 01726 811972 or visit www.edensessions.com
