New Routes: Alden, Patterson & Dashwood + Jellyman's Daughter

Date:Sat 08 Feb
Time:Doors 7.30pm. Music starts 8pm.
Venue:J3
Price:£6

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:

Alden, Patterson and Dashwood

Highly acclaimed folk trio Alden, Patterson and Dashwood weave rich vocal harmonies, fiddle, guitar and dobro around beautifully written original songs and melodies. Their music takes influence from English folk traditions with uplifting instrumentals and self-penned songs depicting tales of young travellers, sleepy seas and their affection for home. 

Their independently-released debut album ‘Call Me Home’ received widespread critical acclaim and was awarded ‘Editor’s Choice Album of the Year’ by fRoots, the UK’s leading publication specialising in folk and world music. 

Over the last three years the trio have made a name as one of the best new acts on the scene and have toured the UK and Europe extensively including main stage slots at the UK’s most prestigious festivals and a tour with folk legends Show of Hands. 

 

The Jellyman's Daughter

Scottish duo The Jellyman's Daughter lands squarely in the middle of an intriguing crossroads between bluegrass, post-rock, folk and soul, managing at the same time to sound not a whole lot like any of those genres. Emily and Graham write their songs together with a focus on doing something new, mixing their intimate vocal harmonies with wild and visceral cello, driving guitar and sweet mandolin, often complimented brilliantly by banjo (Jamie Francis) and double bass (Paul Gilbody/Herbie Loening).

 

Plus floor spots.
