New Roots is committed to promoting events that shine a light on up and coming talent in the UK roots scene. They provide artists with an environment that is sympathetic to what they do. They are committed to giving musicians the respect they and their music deserves. For this reason they have a policy of strictly no talking during performances to ensure the music gets the attention it warrants.
New Roots puts bills together that work as a whole, so the night can be experienced as a show in it's own right, from start to finish. They place any musician who has played at one of our nights permanently on our free guest list for any other of the nights they've played, as they want to encourage community among the fantastic artists that they work with. This provides a welcome and safe haven any time they want to drop in.
New Roots music policy comes from the kitchen table, the roots of public performance - intimate, acoustic based, high quality musicianship with as little interference between performer and listener as possible. Folk, Country blues, Americana, Alt-country, indie-folk, Alt-folk, Bluegrass, Mountain music, Gypsy jazz, Honkytonk and all points in between.
If you'd like to be considered to play at one of their event nights, please send a link to (preferably) a Youtube live performance video or if that's not possible a link to a recording to the email listed above.
