Chris Brambley’s haunting, graceful songs are rooted in the folk tradition. With a clear nod to the folk revival styles of Bert Jansch, John Renbourn and Davy Graham, they’re at the same time wholly contemporary interpretations of the genre. His newly released ‘Aperture E.P’ shares common ground with such modern day alt- folk luminaries as Fionn Regan and Nick Mulvey.
We start the night with an opening set from Daniel Ferguson. One half of New Roots favourites Young Causeway, Dan has recently launched a solo project.
