Another instalment in the New Routes series, an evening of acoustic, folk and roots artists. 

Set out cabaret style with candles on tables, it’s a comfortable and intimate space to listen to the best emerging and established artists from the area.

Featuring:

Dan Wilde

Dan Wilde has been performing his own brand of richly observant folk both in the UK and around the world for the past nine years. In that time, he’s developed a growing fan-base and a reputation amongst those who know as "a fantastic songwriting talent who without a doubt will deserve and demand your attention” (Eclectically Challenged).  

Three albums in, the evidence is clear he’s an extraordinary songsmith, while his ‘stunning’ guitar playing (Maverick Magazine) has led to an endorsement from Fylde guitars. Previous releases, ’This Is The Place’ (2010), ‘With Fire in Mind’ (2013) and Rhythm On The City Wall (2016), have cemented his reputation as a fine songsmith. He is currently working on a new release that is expected sometime in 2020.

It is his profound lyrics, melded with a unique melodic sensibility, which shows the writer maturing into a poetic commentator and keen observer of everyday life’s patterns and tapestries. Dan’s lyrics have been described as “deeply personal and introspective but engrossing and charismatic” (Folkwords) and they reflect his peripatetic restlessness. 

 

George Breakfast

George’s mother often related how he  used to sing in French on the bus as a very young child..not something he remembers..but then who remembers everything?...

He’s been picking and scratching on stringed instruments since he was around thirteen...Canadian ukelele, guitars and onwards...bass, mandolin, bouzouki...always to the accompaniment of much singing...

by his late teens he had begun writing and singing his own songs....and has been doing so ever since....pubs. clubs, street corners, subways, festivals, theatres, radio shows, even a little TV...done so in most western European countries, and a fair amount of the USA, where he lived for nine years.....still up for it anywhere they'll have him...

 

Three Years Younger 

is a band made up of two emerging singer-songwriters from Suffolk. As sisters, they naturally began writing songs together, and collaboratively created their first single 'Ghost Ship' (a song that went on to win the Kimberley Rew Award, for best song last year).

Last year, Three Years Younger played at Camp Bestival, Strawberry Fair and the Big Weekend Stage in Cambridge, and this year they are focusing on producing and releasing new music (under the aliases ‘Charlie-Jo Simpson’ and ‘Megan Simpson’).

As sisters, partners and best friends, they feel as though music is what has tied them together. Up to this point in their career, they have experienced everything together – the nerves before their first gig, and then before their first festival; the shared joy of winning the Under 18s Cambridge Band Competition and Kimberley Rew Award, and most importantly, the elation they have always felt when they sing together.

 

No floor spots.
