Cambridge Leisure park, Clifton Way, CB1 7GX Cambridge, Cambridgeshire
Another installment in the 'New Routes' series, and our last gig before we take a break for the festie season and return in September.
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.
New Routes presents…
Morganway’s fiery brand of alt-country is all driving riffs, charismatic five-part harmonies, emotional songwriting and compelling live performances. Straight out of North Norfolk’s rural outback, the five-piece was started by twins Callum (acoustic guitar, lead vocals) and Kieran Morgan (lead guitar), and features Yve Mary B (lead vocals), Matt Brocklehurst (keyboard) and Simon Tinmouth (drums).
The band’s distinctive Americana glow wears its heart on music that’s raw, melodic, sincere, full of energy and yearning for the open road.
Georgia Shackleton Trio
The Georgia Shackleton Trio are an exciting new act securing upcoming gigs in The UK and Europe, and in 2016 performed main stage slots at Rotterdam Bluegrass Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, Towersey Folk Festival, and Folk East, as well as performing throughout Broadstairs Folk Week amongst others.
Playing a blend of Americana, folk and self-penned material, Georgia Shackleton is an alumna of Newcastle University’s Folk Degree course. Accompanying herself on the fiddle, she writes and performs 'wordy songs about other people’, instrumentally influenced by British, American and Scandinavian folk traditions, with a regional twist from her native East Anglia.
Georgia’s skills as a singer and instrumentalist have been put to the test in numerous different contexts, but her own trio sees her teaming up with guitar powerhouse Aaren Bennett and mandolin ace Nic Zuppardi to create a strong, transatlantic sound.
For this months Floor Spots, we warmly welcome
