|Folk and Roots presents FolkOnMonday, a night of the best of the folk and roots scene held (normally) on the first and third Mondays of the month in London. |
Our next event will be held on Monday 24th August - featuring Ten Strings and a Goatskin
Caladh Nua is a tightly-knit, vibrant band with its origins deeply rooted in the Southern counties of Ireland. Comprised of five versatile musicians and singers playing a wide selection of instruments – from banjo to fiddle, guitar to bodhran and tin whistle to button accordion – the band has captured the essential qualities of traditional Irish music and balanced them finely with an innovative contemporary flair.
