The Lord Rookwood


Dear Forest Roots Folk

This month we welcome back The Hot Strings Review featuring Martin Wheatley on guitar and ukulele and Mike Piggott on fiddle. They are both incredible  musicians and gave us a fantastic evening last time they were at Forest Roots and lots of you have asked when they would be coming back. If you saw them last time  you will remember Martin’s mesmerizing performance of The Dambusters on the ukulele (check him out on youtube) and Mike’s amazing jazz fiddle playing. These two are definitely not to be missed.

The Flats Family Band will be there as well as surprise guests and local performers. If you’d like to be one of them email us.

So that’s the Hot String Review at Forest Roots, The Lord Rookwood, 314, Cann Hall Road, E11 3NW on Friday 30th March. Starts 8.30pm

Stay forever young
