    Every Friday night from 7, Andrew Marston brings you an exclusive live
    session here on BBC Hereford & Worcester.

    This week, we bring you the highlights from the BBC Introducing stage at the Wychwood Festival on Cheltenham Racecourse.

    Chosen to perform an exclusive session for BBC Hereford & Worcester were the Redditch group Pandas & People, featuring King Singh.

    The group, who've only been together for a year, were selected to perform by our presenter Andrew Marston, The Independent's Elisa Bray, Wychwood organiser Graeme Merrifield and BBC 6 Music presenter Tom Robinson.

    Every Friday night from 7, Andrew Marston brings you an exclusive live
    session here on BBC Hereford & Worcester.

    This week, there's more of our highlights from the BBC Introducing stage at the Wychwood Festival on Cheltenham Racecourse.

    An electronica band, who've performed all over Europe, are Herefordshire's Disco Caviar.

    Seppe, the main songwriter, enjoyed a spell in London - where he met other musicians - and then split the project when he moved back home.

    But Disco Caviar are back - and their performance on the BBC Introducing stage was their debut acoustic performance - an experiment to their usual sound.

    Continuing with our Wychwood 2011 highlights, we feature live music from the Malvern rockers Tallulah Fix.

    In total, four acts from across Herefordshire & Worcestershire were chosen to perform on the Cheltenham Racecourse.

    Tallulah Fix have been gigging great guns lately and have carved their name firmly into the side of the Malvern Hills as being one of the tightest, freshest outfits currently doing-the-rounds.

    Carly Dee, singer/songwriter, has only been writing music for 12 months - and this was her first performance with a live band.

    She had joined us for an exclusive BBC Introducing session when we began taking the show out on-the-road in January.

    Her music, which until now has all been studio multitracked, is normally performed acoustically - so this was a very special performance on the BBC Introducing stage at the Wychwood Festival.
