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.

"To celebrate the release of her eagerly anticipated 3rd album, ‘I Dreamt I Was A Bird’ (released 2.10.15), Lucy Ward is setting out on tour with her new band. Stephen MacLachlan (percussion) and Sam Pegg (bass) return following last year’s successful tours.
On fiddle will be the charismatic Anna Esslemont (Uiscedwr) and on keys, Icelandic newcomer, Helga Ragnarsdottir (Lunar). Be prepared for a night of hard hitting, thoughtful songs beautifully sung and dynamically played. Oh yes and there’s bound to be a good deal of fun or it wouldn’t be a Lucy Ward gig!"
