No 14 Bacon Street is a beautifully intimate living-room like 40 capacity roots music venue, a haven of peace and tranquility in the heart of the vibrant Brick Lane area. There isn’t another venue like this in London, it’s like stepping into a secret folk world, you’d never know the noise and bustle of busy Brick Lane was just thirty seconds from the door, it’s a magical place…

.

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’. 8/10 Uncut

.

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.

Sheffield born, London based songwriter Nic Dawson Kelly has been described by The Times as ‘a visceral, compelling presence on the UK music scene’, The Sun calls him ‘one of the most distinctive British voices in years’ and Q maintains his is ‘a soulful take on some of the finest blues-folk around’. After sharing the stages with Laura Marling, Adele and Richard Hawley amongst others, Dawson Kelly has gone on to showcase his music extensively within the capital.
