Dear Forest Roots Folk

Just a quick reminder that we start the season again at Forest Roots this Friday with the Coal Porters. They play their own renowned style of bluegrass and are all amazing musicians playing between them fiddle, guitar, banjo, mandolin and bass:
“Not your average fish & chips bluegrass, the Coal Porters have expanded their music with broad strokes and fearless execution.” Chris Hillman (Byrds/Flying Burrito Bros).

You can check them out at or you’ll find lots of clips on YouTube.

As usual the Flats Family Band will be there as well as surprise guests and local performers so we hope you will come and support us on our first night back.
So that’s the Coal Porters on Friday, 27th September at Forest Roots, the Forest Gate Hotel, 105 Godwin Road, Forest Gate, E7 0LW.

Starts 8.30pm.


Stay forever young

Jenny and Caroline
