The Winemakers is a unique candle-lit stone arch in the vaults of Holborn Viaduct. It’s a 70 capacity seated venue that sounds like a chapel and feels like a theatre. It’s attached to the beautiful Winemakers Club, serving a superb selection of wine, craft beer and whiskey with a cheese and charcuterie plates also served.
 .
John Langan and Alastair Caplin (from the Langan Band) take traditional acoustic idioms- Celtic, Gypsy Swing, Roma and Flamenco- and deliver them with punk abandonment and virtuosic flare. The hugely successful John Langan band trio have been award winners at Celtic Connections, and recently sold out a memorable show at Shakespeare’s Globe. Tonight Langan and fiddler Alastair Caplin appear as a duo, focussing on the more traditional folk side of their sound.

Whiskey Moon Face are an alternative folk group based around double bass, accordian, clarinet and banjo, led by the stunning vocals and hallucinatory lyrics of singer Louisa Jones. They combine elements of Eastern European traditional music, old-time New Orleans jazz, the baroque folk of Sufjan Stevens and Beirut, and their own unique take on contemporary folk to make for a superbly realized and truly beautiful sound.
