Another instalment in the New Routes series, an evening of acoustic, folk and roots artists.

Set out cabaret style with candles on tables, it’s a comfortable and intimate space to listen to the best emerging and established artists from the area.

Featuring:

Amy Hollinrake
English singer/songwriter Amy Hollinrake first drew praise in 2016 for her debut EP 'Fade into This' with Blackwater Records, which drew comparisons to Mazzy Star and Sandy Denny.  

With a mostly acoustic setup, composing on her Mountain Dulcimer, Amy draws on folk songs fused with original ideas, to create a unique contemporary sound that breathes new life into traditional stories. Accompanied by her band, she finds subtle synergies between acoustic instruments and washing synth textures, weaving through jazz inflected rhythms.  

Based in South-East London she combines influences close to home and further afield. Her songwriting, described as both cryptic and emotionally direct, draws on her influence and affinity with women’s experience presented in folklore, poetry and literature. Dubbed at her The Harrison, London debut gig as, ‘making you consider the words in a different way. She has an absolutely captivating voice, one that raises the hairs on the neck and makes you want to listen all night’.  

Researcher and founder of feminist cataloguing project ‘Washer Woman’, lockdown brought Amy dedicated time to develop an ambitious idea, to create an online catalogue of female identity in folk songs and ballads. Which is due to be launched next year.   

Winner of the Bert Jansch award 2018 and Cecil Sharp House professional folk artist 2021, Amy has been getting known in the London scene and beyond.  

Eli Bre
Swiss singer/songwriter Eli Bre has released her debut album in 2016 and has since been travelling the world; from Madrid to Cambridge to New York she is now back in Cambridge to stay. Her sound has been described as emotionally charged, dark Folk with Country elements and her characteristic voice and 12-string guitar captivate live audiences.
