New Roots presents a very special one-off concert of pre-50s country blues and folk and other inspirations and influences from Jack Harris, a hugely respected figure on the UK roots scene. Expect Big Bill Broonzy to Mississippi John Hurt, Robert Johnson to early Muddy Waters and much much more from this brilliant guitarist and singer-songwriter.

Jack Harris was a SXSW showcasing artist at 17, and 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.
