|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 2nd March - featuring Jaywalkers
Since reaching the finals of the BBC Young Folk Awards in 2008, Jaywalkers have cemented their place as one of the most exciting, virtuosic and entertaining young bands working on the British Folk scene. Effortlessly creating a unique sound based on their collective and individual musical backgrounds, the band takes influence from Folk, Bluegrass, Country and Western Swing music in the form of virtuosic instrumentals, three part harmony and impressive slap bass.

Perthshire fiddler and singer Patsy Reid is one of the most admired musicians in the UK. In the last couple of years the former Breabach fiddle player has performed extensively with BBC Radio 2 Folk Award 2013 winners Kathryn Tickell and Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman, The Cecil Sharp Project and Zakir Hussain’s Pulse of the World. She also contributed violin, viola and cello to albums by Donald Shaw, Duncan Chisholm, Bella Hardy, Treacherous Orchestra, Tim Edey and Luke Daniels to name just a few. Now Patsy takes centre stage - accompanied by an equally accomplished band - to bring us tunes and songs from her highly acclaimed new album, The Brightest Path. This, her first solo recording since 2008’s rapturously received Bridging The Gap, features freshly recovered traditional Scottish melodies alongside self-penned and contemporary material that demonstrates Patsy’s ability to virtually sing through her instrument.
Patsy Reid and friends are on tour throughout February.. see www.patsyreid.com for details..
