Northern singer-songwriter Robin Elliott‘s gruff, dry sense of humour and a voice like brushed smoke underpin a keen ear for the observational and a finely honed songwriting craft. A key player in the London folk scene, Elliott’s songs have been performed by Radio 2 Folk Award winner Ben Walker, Samantha Whates, and Sophie Jamieson amongst others. His work has featured in the feature film A Very British Gangster and on Channel 4’s much respected Cutting Edge series. Tonight sees the launch of his new EP ‘At Sunset’.
‘Rooted in a narrative tradition, it’s a pleasure to listen to’. Folk Radio UK
Jack Harris‘s songs take a compassionate look at things both common and uncommon, and see them differently. They are literate, curious, often in character, and always intriguing. His latest album, ‘The Wide Afternoon’, produced by UK folk giant Gerry Diver (Sam Lee, Lisa Knapp, Tom Robinson), was released in November 2017 to universal press acclaim. Jack was a SXSW showcasing artist at 17, as well as the youngest ever winner of the Kerrville Folk Festival’s New Folk Award in 2005 (previous winners include Gillian Welch, Devon Sproule and Anais Mitchell). He has been the recipient of the PRS ATOM award for new music creation, as well as an EFDSS creative bursary for songwriting.
