New Roots is committed to promoting events that shine a light on up and coming talent in the UK roots scene. It’s committed to providing artists with an environment that is sympathetic to what they do, giving musicians the respect they and their music deserves. Our music policy comes from the kitchen table, the roots of public performance- intimate, acoustic based, high quality musicianship with as little interference between performer and listener as possible. We find that in traditional folk, indie folk, alt-folk, chamber folk, country blues, Americana, alt-country, old-time rhythm & blues, gypsy jazz, honky-tonk, klezmer, world music, modern classical music and all points in between.
