ELLIOTT CAMPION

How old are you?
I'm 13

What sort of dancing do you do?
I do break dancing and street dancing

What was it like dancing with George Sampson?
Usually fun cos I got to know lots of people and became a better dancer.

Do you think you are a better dancer than George Sampson?
I think I'm on the same level as him

How long have you been dancing?
Coming up to two years this summer.

Is it easy to dance?
It's kind of easy but you need to train harder to become better

What are you going to do at Party In The Park ?
I'm going to dance with my best friend, Ellis, and I'm going to show you all of my best moves and hopefully I'm going to give you guys a good time


JOHN HERRING

What was it like playing Party In The Park last year?
A real pleasure last year - mostly because it is in aid of a wonderful project. To play a festival on the scale it was delivered in the centre of Salford was a great experience.

What kind of music do you do?
I am an acoustic singer/songwriter, but the music I have done spans a lot of different styles. On my new record we even have strings and a choir which really add to the overall feel of the music.

Which are your fave songs that you're going to be playing at the Party?
I'm going to pick 2! Love Don't Cut It, because it transmits across to the audience really well and Home, which is a true anthem –and it's great when you've got a crowd joining in which is what tends to happen when it's played.

Does Salford inspire you?Absolutely. The new album is called 'Tales From a Northern City' because Salford, and if I'm honest Manchester, have been inspirational. The songs I play are rooted in the places I have grown up and lived in.

Have you got a record out?
 'Tales From a Northern City' came out last month and we launched it in Salford at Blueprint Studios to 200 people and had a really good response.

 

BRIGGZY
You played Party In The Park last year - did you enjoy it?
Yeah I love Party In The Park. It's good to see and hear different genres of music, plus the audience is always good, they get involved.

What kind of music do you do?
I mostly do Hiphop/Rap & a bit of R&B. I'm also working on adapting Hiphop to a more acoustic sound with guitarist Samir Harmim. The Out of Order album I'm doing with Raptor will be a more commercial UK Hiphop, with a similar sound to the likes of NDubz, Dizzee Rascal & Kano.

Have you had any records out?
Yeah, I've released 4 CDs and the latest, All Bets Are Off.Does Salford inspire you?
More than anything. To know that I've achieved something coming from an area which is constantly criticised an' down graded, just proves how much anything is possible. Salford has inspired me to become the artist I am today. Viva La Salford! Haha
