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…

Paul Mosley is an award winning composer/singer/songwriter who loves a concept. Combining charmingly off kilter art-rock sensibilities with hook laden chorusses his hugely enjoyable live shows have taken his ever rotating’ Red Meat Orchestra’ everywhere from Glastonbury to Green Man via Amsterdam brothels and the most remote wilds of Iceland.

His new album ‘The Butcher’ is an epic folk opera, a ghost story 2 years in the making, told over 20 songs by 20+ musicians – friends made on Mosley’s various composing projects including BBC Folk Awards winner Josienne Clarke, Jamie  Lawson, Mediaeval Baebe Esther Dee, long time collaborator harpist Tom Moth now of Florence And The Machine and musicians from the bands of Feist, Benjamin Clementine, Madness, Patrick Wolf and Neko Case.

For this intimate one off show Paul will be joined by his string trio ‘The Red Meat Cutlets’

‘Beautiful guile and audacity… a darkened folk masterpiece. A triumph’ ★★★★  The Quietus

‘What a voice!’  Jools Holland

Brighton-based visual artist and singer-songwriter Jinnwoo’s critically-acclaimed debut ‘Your Baby’ E.P. resulted in his named one of The Independent’s ‘Faces to Watch 2015’. His long-awaited debut album ‘Strangers Bring Me No Light.’ was released on the much respctd Cargo label on 2nd Sept.

The album features collaborations with Malcolm Middleton, Alasdair Roberts, Kami Thompson (The Rails) and Kylie La Grange. Jinnwoo’s confessional reel is one sung in a voice so distinctive no adequate comparisons can be made, but the story-telling style of Bob Dylan, the fragile delivery of troubadour Michael Stipe, and the jagged alt-folk of early Throwing Muses have been raised as a starting point. His sparse atmospheric folk-soundscapes, laced with ghostly string arrangements and his exceptional acoustic guitar work, offer a kind of ‘spooked’ ‘gothic’ folk that sounds like no other. ‘Strangers Bring Me No Light’ is nothing short of a seminal record and Jinnwoo a true original.

The Independent – “jinnwoo is the most singular new folk talent in some time” 4/5

The Guardian – “Jinnwoo’s gothic folk-croak is a confessional reel unspooling from his innards, a tale of circling doom”

The Line of Best Fit – “A rising talent in the folk world, Jinnwoo has been setting hearts ablaze with his off-kilter guitarisms and distinct, emotive vocals.”

American artist Dietrich Strause is released his new album How Cruel That Hunger Binds on August 26th, produced by Zachariah Hickman (Ray LaMontage, Josh Ritter), a collection of songs found somewhere in the shadows of the likes of Randy Newman, Nick Lowe, and Paul Simon. His last release Little Stones to Break the Giant’s Heart was featured in No Depression, The Bluegrass Situation, CMT’s The Edge, and on Starbucks’ World Wide Playlist, whisch in turn led to invitations to share stages with such folk luminaries such as Anais Mitchell, Great Lake Swimmers, and Sarah Jarosz.
