COAL PORTERS AT FOREST ROOTS

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 www.sidgriffin.com 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

THE HOT STRINGS REVIEW – AT FOREST ROOTS

Dear Forest Roots Folk

This month we welcome back The Hot Strings Review featuring Martin Wheatley on guitar and ukulele and Mike Piggott www.mikepiggott.com 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
