New Roots presents… WHISKEY MOONFACE

To describe WHISKEY MOONFACE as an alternative folk group doesn’t even begin to do justice to the breadth of inspiration and style in their music. Based around double bass (Dakota Jim), accordion (Louisa Jones) and clarinet (Ewan Bleach), they’re led by Jones’ superb vocals, spiced with gently hallucinatory lyrics. Capable of being both ear-to-ear-grinningly entertaining and profoundly moving, elements of old-time New Orleans jazz, Eastern European folk music and the baroque/ chamber folk styles of the likes of Sufjan Stevens and Beirut combine with the bacchanalian spirit of Tom Waits to make for their own unique take on contemporary roots music.

They create a truly beautiful and utterly original sound- there is simply no-one in the UK making music like Whiskey Moonface, don’t miss them.


NEW ROOTS is committed to promoting events that shine a light on up and coming talent in the UK alt-folk and contemporary roots music 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 deserve – for this reason we ask for no talking and no use of mobile phones while artists are performing. 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.
