Kasai Masai

KASAI MASAI AT FOREST ROOTS

Dear Forest Roots Folk

Summer is nearly here or so we thought a couple of weeks ago! Thought it was too good to last. Anyway, we welcome back Kasai Masai (see http://www.kasaimasai.com) who are sure to bring some sunshine into our lives.

They are a band of truly wonderful musicians once again bringing their unique African sounds to Forest Roots. As usual we will have surprise guests and local singers as well as The Flats Family Band and, after forsaking us as he had a gig, Nick Pickett will be back too.

This will be the last night before the summer as otherwise we would be competing with a much bigger event. Not allowed to say the word due to copyright issues but you know what I mean.

So that’s Kasai Masai at Forest Roots on Friday 29th June, at The Lord Rookwood, 314 Cann Hall Road, Forest Gate, London, E11 3NW.
Starts 8.30

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!
