James McArthur has just released his third album ‘Strange Readings From The Weather Station’, on Melodica Recordings, to great acclaim. His hazily melodic and gently psychedelic songwriting style embellished with sweet harmonies is reminiscent of the ambient and dreamy folk of Nick Drake and Sam Beam’s Iron and Wine. He’s backed by pedal steel, intricately plucked acoustic guitar and beautifully interwoven fiddle accompaniment.

‘McArthur makes lovely late summer music, cross hatched with sunlight and shadows’ – Uncut magazine

★★★★ Record Collector Magazine

‘Beautiful all the way through – I couldn’t recommend the album highly enough’ – Adam Walton BBC Radio Wales Radio

This is a ticket only event, £8.00 adv from the above link. Music begins at 8.00 pm sharp. Because of the nature of the performance space it is difficult to seat latecomers until the interval at 9.00 pm.

New Roots presents a unique concert in a unique venue.
Brooke Sharkey andAdam Beattie play leading roles in the vibrant East London music scene where multi-cultural musicians are creating fantastic new roots sounds combining elements of jazz, British & Irish folk, blues, latin and Eastern European music. The performance takes place in a strikingly atmospheric candle-lit stone arch, connected to the wonderful independently run Winemakers Club. The wine bar has a seriously impressive wine and craft beer list, and serves as a perfect foyer for a drink before, during the interval, and after the show.

Anglo-French chanteuse Brooke Sharkey’s music travels from the delicately intimate to soaringly epic, sung with one of the finest voices we’ve ever heard here at New Roots. Armed with a stunning set of songs, she takes in influences from French ballads to English folk and gypsy romanticism. Supported by minimal, atmospheric accompaniment from electric guitar and drums, her music is infused with an utterly contemporary edge.

Adam Beattie and the Consultants bring their new harder jazz-edged sound to The Winemakers . Beattie ploughs a similar furrow to Tom Waits and Nick Cave’s downtempo work, noir folk blues with a dark edge and a big heart that never fails to move an audience. You’ll hear influences from old-time jazz, swing and parlour songs in his sound, now abstracted to a sharper, darker and more modern setting.

Doors from 7.00 pm

Music begins at 8.00 pm. There will be a thirty minute interval at 8.45 pm.

‘Russell Swallow is an acoustic evangelist…clearly a man with poetry in his soul’- Tom Robinson, BBC6 music

‘very, very beautiful’ – Chris Hawkins, BBC6 music
