Inspired by the Carter Family, Moondog, Harry Partch and the Elliotts of Birtley, New Wired Folk is our fourth evening of challenging roots and folk musics.

Featuring Drag City recording artist and Will Oldham collaborator Alasdair Roberts, Emily Portman (back by overwhelming demand), Swedish electro-folk rounds from Nathalie Stern and Bridie Jackson.

Alasdair Roberts
“While there are echoes of Incredible String Band’s motley eclecticism, the pained isolation of Nick Drake, and British traditional music, this music is original in every way” – BBC

Rubus featuring Emily Portman
“Songs of the English tradition with invigorating energy and grace” – Martin Carthy

Nathalie Stern
“Traditional Swedish folk songs chopped up, glued back together and stashed in a loop pedal” – NARC

Bridie Jackson
“A voice as raw and beautiful as the young Karen Dalton” – CP Quarterly
