New Roots presents Mishaped Pearls

Thursday 28th September

At the forefront of a very exciting new wave of UK folk, seven-piece Mishaped Pearls' most recent album 'Thamesis' has recieved four star reviews from The Guardian, the Financial Times and the Telegraph, and garnered the highest of praise from Tom Robinson, Mark Radcliffe and Bob Harris, highlights amongst universal acclaim from the press and media. Their adventurous song combination of the ancient and the new finds an echo in their musical make-up - banjo, saz baglama, bodhran, violin and mandolin mix with acoustic guitar, keyboards, electric bass and drums, all led by the mezzo-soprano voice of Manuela Schuette. Their music's roots in tradition expand into progressive folk and rock, eastern modal music and shows elements of contemporary classical influence. Support comes from Sandtimer. 7:30pm- 11pm; £10 in advance
