A firm favourite of the New Roots Sessions, Jack Harris was a South by Southwest showcasing artist at 17. He was the first international act to win the New Folk songwriting competition at The Kerrville Folk Festival, Texas- previous winners include Steve Earle, Lyle Lovett, Gillian Welch and Devon Sproule.. A virtuosic guitar player and wonderfully authentic folk singer and songwriter, he has shared the stage with everyone from Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick to Anais Mitchell and Jeffrey Foucault.

New Forest singer songwriter Kirsty Merryn’s delicately introspective piano based songs and sophisticated musical style are balanced beautifully by an intimate and finely observational lyrical content. She has recently been listed in Buzzfeed’s ’34 Brilliant British Songwriters To Discover’.

Chris Brambley is guitarist with UK band The Sticklers. His solo work is firmly based in acoustic folk tradition, with an intricate fingerpicking style reminiscent of Bert Jansch and John Renbourn and echoes of James Taylor in his beautifully crafted songs. He hasn’t been on the New Roots stage before, we’re excited to welcome him here for the first time.
