The Winemakers is a strikingly atmospheric candle-lit stone arch set in the vaults of Holborn Viaduct, five minutes walk from Farringdon tube station in zone 1. It’s limited to 77 capacity, feels like a theatre, and sounds like a chapel. It’s attached in the adjacent vault to the beautiful Winemakers Club, an independent wine, craft beer and whiskey bar, also serving a fine selection of cheese and charcuterie.
Benji Kirkpatrick is a founding member of multi award-winning folk big band Bellowhead and acclaimed trio Faustus, a key member of Mercury nominee Seth Lakeman‘s recording and touring band, and has recorded extensively with Maddy Prior (Steeleye Span) and The Oyster Band. Janie Mitchell, with her previous duo Beguildy, achieved world-wide radio play with the album ‘The Mary Webb Songs’ , featuring as fRoots magazine’s Best Album: Editor’s Choice. Using hammered dulcimer, guitars and bouzouki, the pair blend English folk with contemporary acoustic styles, the master musicianship of Kirkpatrick dovetailing perfectly with Mitchell’s poetic lyricism.
One of the finest artists to grace the New Roots sessions, Ned Roberts is a wonderfully accomplished folk musician with a timeless quality to his sound. His perfectly balanced Laurel Canyon-esque songs delivered with a poetic turn of phrase, excellent musicianship and a perfectly judged vocal sensibility sit comfortably amongst the classics of the acoustic folk world. He recently released his debut album to rave reviews, recorded in L.A. and produced by Luther Russell (Noah and the Whale/ Richmond Fontaine), and completed a support tour with folk legend Anais Mitchell.
‘Absolutely gorgeous stuff…one to really get excited about’
Lauren Laverne, BBC 6Music
‘…a warm treat. Roberts is a fine guitar picker, his melodies reminiscent of Leonard Cohen with lyrical nods to Bob Dylan, and his voice has echoes of Tim Hardin.’ Observer ★★★★
‘An understated gem’ – The Independent on Sunday
‘…so gifted, possessing a fine ear for a tune and a real knack for storytelling..stunning’.
