Happy New Year! If the needle on your fun-o-meter is at a January low here is something to cheer you up: A brilliant night of music featuring two exceptional singer-songwriters and a frankly brilliant band. And guess what, it’s all free!
To start the night off we have RUTA DI, one of the best kept secrets in London, Ruta is a gifted and inventive singer and musician, who began learning piano at the age of 6. In her teens she started listening to rock and jazz music, and subsequently went on to study jazz guitar at the Music Conservatoire in Lithuania. Her songs are a rich blend of soul and jazz served up with infectious rhythms and unique vocals.
DANIEL FERGUSON, a regular performer at Hootananny Songwriters and Wordsmiths, Daniel combines his intricate guitar finger picking with a unique, pure and powerful voice. His melodic songs, with their generous sprinkling of protest, will easily find their way into your head… and happily stay there.
And finally we are delighted to welcome back SLEEPY FOLK who wowed us when they performed at the Hootananny earlier in the year.
Sleepy folk are a four piece alternative folk band from the land of dreamers. The sleepies bring harmonies to cuddle your ears through a journey of folk to jazz, holding your hand through a trance as you experience the creative introspection of Sleepy Folk. The eclectic mix consists of Lara Collinge on vocals, ukulele, glockenspiel and others, Eszter Mics on vocals, keyboard and flute, Eva Perrin Fontana on vocals, bass and guitar and Wade Bearder on beatbox, guitar and vocals.
