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

LEON HUNT AT FOREST ROOTS

Dear Forest Roots Folk

This month at Forest Roots we are very lucky to have Leon Hunt www.leonhunt.com. He is probably the UK’s foremost banjo player. He plays all styles of 5-string banjo, not just bluegrass but also jazz and Irish. He studied with the renowned American banjo virtuoso, Bela Fleck and he is also a member of the Daily Planet as well as doing lots of sessions for various well known artists. He will be ably accompanied by Chris Haigh on fiddle www.fiddlingaround.com and Paul Kerr on vocals and guitar.

Check him out on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehSTssRUTRk and there is much more …

Leon Hunt’s YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/probablyleon?ob=0&feature=results_main  

“This is banjo wizardry in a style totally unique.Leonplays with brilliance and soul – you don’t always find the two together” — Mike Harding – BBC Radio 

“Leon shines brightest when he whips out a rendition of the Pat Metheny tune ‘James’. With this record he manages to smash all preconceptions about what a banjo can and can’t do and leaves you both satisfied and wanting more.” —Guitarist Magazine

“This record shows how world-class Leon’s playing really is.” — Banjo NewsLetter (USA)

Need I say more? Apart from there will be The Flats Family Band, plus local singers and a surprise guest.

So see you all at Forest Roots on Friday, 27th April at The Lord Rookwood, 314 Cann Hall Road, Leytonstone, London, E11 3NW.

Starts 8.30pm (Free entry + whip round)

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

THE BONFIRE BAND AT FOREST ROOTS

Dear Forest Roots Folk

Forest Roots is back with a bang and this month we have the hugely talented Bonfire Band http://www.thebonfireband.co.uk ably supported by traditional folk duo Annie Winter and Dean Hobbs.

The Kittiwakes at Leigh-on-Sea Folk Festival 2010

THE KITTIWAKES AT FOREST ROOTS – 25th MARCH 2011

Dear Forest Roots Folk

For those of you who didn’t make it to the Lord Rookwood for our last Forest Roots night it turned out to be a great night and great venue and was packed out so thank you to all those Forest Roots Fans who supported us and turned up and it was nice to see lots of new faces too. 

Thank you to Bob, our genial landlord, for making us so welcome serving good beer in a nice and more importantly, warm room.  We hope you can all make it on 25th March at 8.30pm when we have the Kittiwakes. They are a firm favourite at Forest Roots and last time they played they sold out of CDs so get there early if you want a good seat because it’s going to be another great night

Stay forever young
