THE live music line-up of York and Yorkshire acts is in place for Saturday's Copmanthorpe Carnival Day at the Recreation Centre, Copmanthorpe, York.

Taking part will be Dr Philosfunk; Your Illumination; Acko Pulco And The Cliff Divers; The Mothers; Stanne; Kymberley Kennedy and The Mix.

Pop, rock and funk three-piece Dr Philosofunk pride themselves on performing songs to make people feel good and feel funky. "From slapping bass solos, to roaring guitar solos and thumping drum solos, the Dr is always on call, baby," they say.

Anthemic pop-rockers Your Illuminations "have been on a non-stop rise and now are set to explode on to the international scene" after a sold-out British tour and an iTunes top ten hit.

Acko Pulco And the Cliff Divers are a vibrant, frenetic border-town Tex-Mex dance combo, featuring past members of York party band the Bogus Brothers and The Goosehorns. The eight-piece lean heavily towards The Mavericks and The Texas Tornadoes, while projecting their own enjoyment on stage on to their audience.

The Mothers specialise in classic rock, present-day indie and a smattering of funk, covering The Who, Kings Of Leon, Kaiser Chiefs and James Brown, while Stanne is an urban-pop songwriter from York, based in Leeds, who originally sang classical music, winning competitions for her soprano voice. She now draws inspiration from The Weekend and Aretha Franklin.

York singer-songwriter Kymberley Kennedy first came to attention with her debut EP Blackout. Working with guitarist Miles Williams and keyboards player Steve Wilkinson, they fuse glacial piano lines and near-spectral guitars with Kymberley's ethereal vocals.

The Mix's experienced and versatile professional musicians have built up an extensive repertoire of covers, spanning rock, pop, funk and modern anthems. Between them, the four members have played in bands that have supported Coldplay and Arctic Monkeys, performed at Glastonbury Festival and recorded at BBC Maida Vale Studios.

Saturday's Carnival Day opens at 11.30am; tickets bought up to tomorrow cost £5 for adults and children aged 14 to 16, under 14s free, at; on the day, £7, adults, £5, 14 to 16 year olds and members of emergency and NHS, and under 14s, free.
