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. Tickets are limited to 50- if you’ve bought your tickets, and you have a party of four or more, you can reserve a table for the gig to make sure you all sit together by sending an email with all the relevant names to Rory at newrootsevents@gmail.com before midday the day before the gig, Friday 15th Jan. Any reservations made after this time won’t be processed. Don’t worry if you don’t though, there are fifty tickets and fifty seats, so you’ll get a seat regardless!

May Gibbs is currently finishing an electronic album of dark folktales under the name ‘Mesadorm’- she’s a writer of beautiful piano based songs, a strikingly original songwriter possessed of a stunning voice of huge range and emotion. You’ll hear echoes of Kate Bush, Bjork, and Martha Wainwright in the background of her songs. Above all else though, you’ll hear the startling sound of a truly exciting new voice in contemporary British music. At The Winemakers she has been invited to curate and host this candlelit evening and is accompanied by a selection of her most formidable world-touring musician co-conspirators. Those who frequent gigs in London will know of Jo Silverston on cello, Daisy Palmer on percussion and Misha Law on fiddle. Elements of life; strangeness, sex, fear and joy are here jocularly and candidly explored.

Here’s what May has to say about Barnaby Keen: Lead singer and creative force behind the brilliant Flying Ibex, Barney has written with Rag n Bone Man, Marcus Foster and a series of chart toppers. But it is in his own projects that you can really see a genius emerging. He is absolutely one of our current favourite singer songwriters with a voice and guitar playing that is truly mesmeric, influenced by travel to South America. He has a masterful lyrical style that combines with a gentle stage presence to make him a truly rare and exceptional act.

And here’s what May has to say about Sisik: Sisika: is fronted by the Duncan sisters from South London, fresh from their travels to New Orleans gathering inspiration and experience..They are a new act emerging on the scene but one we should all be keeping an eye on.. Their voices weave close, lyrical, earthy harmonies, emerging from warm, melodic guitar and rhythmic piano lines that provide a base for the voices to grow and intertwine, fusing together a sound that meets somewhere between soul and folk. On stage their sisterhood supports a refreshingly honest solidarity which is really wonderful to watch.
