FOREST  ROOTS – FRIDAY 26th NOVEMBER 2010

Liam Grundy

LIAM GRUNDY AT FOREST ROOTS

Dear Forest Folk

We can now tell you that our surprise guest this month is Liam Grundy. Liam plays a bluesy mix of Americana and country blues and has gigged all over Europe and the States both solo and with his band. Check him out at http://www.liamgrundy.com and listen to him at http://www.myspace.com/liamgrundy  

I’m sure Chris will be getting up to play a few numbers with him too. Also we are very pleased to announce that tenstringfever who gave us such a fantastic set last time will also be playing: http://www.tenstringfever.com  

Jane Wheeler has promised to sing a couple of numbers and the Flats Family band will be there as usual so it’s sure to be a fun packed night.

So that’s Friday 24th September at the Function Room, Forest Gate Hotel, Godwin Road, Forest Gate, E7 0LW

Stay forever young

Jenny and Caroline

FOREST ROOTS

Dear Forest Folk

Don’t forget this Friday (30th April) we have our very own Nick Pickett, who has been entertaining us with his wonderful songs and fantastic guitar and harmonica playing since Forest Roots started. He will be joined by Chris Haigh for a few numbers, so if you’ve seen Nick perform before then you know he’s going to give us a fantastic night.

We also have Stew Simpson, an up and coming singer/songwriter, who we’ve seen before at Forest Roots and he was so good we asked him back. The Flats Family Band will be there and Angus will be giving us one of his self-penned numbers.

Also a date for your diary as next month we have The Kremlinaires, masters of Soviet swing and Bolshevik boogie, on Friday, 28th May

So see you all this Friday at Forest Roots, the Forest Gate Hotel, On the corner of Godwin Road and Tylney Road, Forest Gate, London E7

Stay forever young

Jenny and Caroline

PS: Please note, Forest Roots is a volcanic ash free zone however if you just want to let off a bit of steam it’s the perfect place to be!
