Shropshire Roots, which is backed by Shrewsbury Folk Festival, has announced its winter programme that includes festival patron John Jones performing a rare solo gig at The Hive in Belmont on January 25th. Damien Barber, leader of the Demon Barber Roadshow, and Mike Wilson, from the Wilson family band, will also perform at the venue on February 8th before BBC Folk Award winner Jim Moray pays a visit on March 22nd.
Winners of the Radio 2 Horizon award and BBC Young Folk award winners Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar will follow him there on April 19th. Rising star Emma Sweeney will make her debut at Morris Hall on May 10 and Irish singer songwriter Keiran Goss will make a welcome return to The Hive in Shrewsbury on May 31st.
Festival Director Alan Surtees said the winter-spring line up offered a real treat for fans of acoustic and folk music. “There is a real cross section of music on offer in this concert series from Celtic to traditional English at two great venues in Shrewsbury. Every concert will offer followers of acoustic and folk music something different and we look forward to seeing as many people as possible at the performances.” All concerts start at 7.45pm and tickets are available from The Hive on 01743 234970 or www.wegotickets.com/shropshireroots.
