Saturday 3 March 2018 featuring Bird In The Belly plus floor spots 

Our guest act for March is newly formed folk band Bird In The Belly. 

The group is formed of solo artist Jinnwoo, traditional folk duo Hickory Signals, multi-instrumentalist and producer Tom Pryor, and visual artist and musician Epha Roe. Together they have spent the last 12 months recording songs and stories that have either never before been recorded or are rarely recorded – all set to contemporary folk music, in the hopes of reintroducing these songs back into the folk canon.

There will of course be floor spots too! Those wishing to perform should come along at 7.30pm to put your name on the list. We welcome performers from all corners of the folk spectrum! 

Doors 7.30pm, music starts at 8pm. Entry £5.

Upstairs at The Selkirk, 60 Selkirk Road, Tooting Broadway, London SW17 0ES

Singer & guitarist from the Midlands, now based in North Norfolk, Gemma’s arrangements of traditional songs emphasise the universal stories and themes found in folk traditions and sensitively draw out the richness and beauty of the old melodies. Her voice is captivating, stunning and unique.

Saturday 6 January 2018 – featuring Kieran Towers & Charlotte Carrivick plus floor spots

Playing and singing tunes and songs from the Appalachian mountains of North America, Kieran’s fiddle weaves and pulses around Charlotte’s intricate banjo, mandolin and guitar. Their debut album of traditional and original instrumentals recieved high praise across the board, with their live set also containing a selection of traditional old time songs as well.
