    POSTPONED | HANNAH WHITE WITH BAND | EWAN MAINWOOD |Saturday 18 September 2021

    POSTPONED

     

     

    When people talk about the songs of Hannah White, they talk about passion, honesty, social conscience and pure musicality. With the release of her groundbreaking new album, that conversation is getting louder and louder.

    The London-born singer-songwriter established herself as one of the UK's freshest talents via such solo albums as 
    Whose Side Are You On? in 2016 and the 2018 follow-up Elephant Eye. The latter's charming flagship single 'In It For Love' won airplay on BBC Radio 2, 6 Music and BBC London as one of six tracks to receive radio attention. A raft of positive reviews picked up on White's singular melodic and lyrical flair and signposted the incredibly inclusive and stirring live shows that she's been playing for a decade.

    Like so many artists, Hannah was significantly impacted by the pandemic. With the 'Hannah White and the Nordic Connections' album due for release as global lockdowns were being announced in 2020, her tours both in the UK and Norway were cancelled. But this huge challenge turned into a triumph.

    Review after review heaped praise on the record's delightful, trademark Anglo-Norwegian Americana style ­– culminating in its nomination as UK Album of the Year at the 2021 UK Americana Awards, in the distinguished company of Laura Marling, Emily Barker and Robert Vincent. Airplay arrived on BBC Radio 2 and many regional BBC stations, as did official Spotify playlisting. 

    Among the critical acclaim, W21 Music called it "honest and unflinching. An emotional rollercoaster ride that never lets up." Folk and Tumble called it "a timeless classic," while for Phoenix Radio in Australia it was "cutting and powerful. A modern day Pete Seeger." Fatea magazine marvelled at "the restraint, the range, the softness, the clarity, the levels all appropriately placed in delivering this masterpiece," and Roadtracks in Germany described the set as "a Scandinavian UK-Americana miracle that beguiles the heart and soul. Touching words and excellent voice almost tear your heart apart. Already talking song of the year.”

    More recently, Hannah and Keiron Marshall teamed up again, remotely this time, with their Norwegian bandmates, Lars Hammersland (Hammond organ), Ole Ludvig Krüger (drums) and Svein Henning Berstad (vocals), now with the endorsement of two hugely revered Nashville musicians: Grammy-winning multi-instrumentalist Tim O’Brien (fiddle, mandolin, mandola & vocals) and Viktor Krauss, brother of Alison (upright bass), to record the infectiously uplifting single 'Walk Beside Me' which was picked up by two more beloved Americana greats, Buddy Miller and Jim Lauderdale, and showcased on their 'Buddy & Jim' show on the SiriusXM Outlaw channel. It won a coveted slot on the US internet station Folk Alley, and was featured on DittyTV and across the BBC network.

    While the Norwegian band won't be able to come to the UK (due to restrictions) Hannah will be playing with UK based musicians in her band.

    Sean Taylor’s unique songwriting is a late night cocktail of Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen and Jack Kerouac; with a voice that is a cross between John Martyn and Van Morrison and a guitar style that sounds like an acoustic Stevie Ray Vaughan jamming with JJ Cale…His live shows fuse world class songwriting with stories from the road.

    MORGANWAY | SATURDAY 12 MARCH 2022

    Doors 19:00 | Live 19:30 | Finish 10:45

    MORGANWAY

    A six-piece from East Anglia founded by twin brothers Callum (vocals, guitar, bass) and Kieran Morgan (lead guitar, backing vocals). Throughout their early years the boys played in various bands but struggled to find a box to fit into. Too rock for folk, too pop for indie, too indie for country, or so it seemed. Choosing to follow their instincts rather than convention, they became Morganway and suddenly people started listening.
     
    Joined by SJ Mortimer (vocals), Nicole Terry (fiddle), Matthew Brocklehurst (keys) and Ed Bullinger (drums), the band has developed a sound built on a love for multi-layered vocal harmonies, driven guitar riffs and distinctive fiddle flourishes, bound by raw, honest songwriting. They've built this into a live show that in one moment is classic rock and the next mystical folk, catching the attention of Whispering Bob Harris and many others in the rising British Americana scene. Their collective obsession with ‘70s West Coast rock is also met with a love of Brit Rock, folk and modern Americana.
    Described as “One of Britain’s most exciting unsigned bands...they are going places.”

    Anyone fortunate enough to have been in the audience when LRB hosted the band last September 2019 will know what a truly awesome experience Morganway are live.

    Paul Carr, revPACman, picked Frozen in Our Time, filmed and recorded live at Little Rabbit Barn last September as his top song of 2019. Paul wrote "Frozen in Our Time is an instant classic, has an anthemic mystery attached to it and is such a mature song for a young band, S.J. Mortimer's vocal are sensational too!"

    Here is the video of the award winning song and performance.

    "This band are truly something special and surely destined for much bigger, they generate such electricity and atmosphere and tonight was
    an absolute pleasure to watch.”
    Chris Farlie (W21 Music, Buckle & Boots 2018 review)

    "Heralding euphoric choruses and electric riffs Fleetwood Mac and The Strokes, the harmonies of icons ELO meeting The Magic Numbers somewhere along the way, and the modern female vocal of Haim, Morganway are quite the tour de force soup, but let’s be frank here: this Norfolk outfit doesn’t sound like anyone else."

    LYNNE HANSON and THE GOOD INTENTIONS | Saturday 16 April 2022

    Doors 19:00 | Live 19:30 | Finish 10:45

    LYNNE HANSON and THE GOOD INTENTIONS | Saturday 169 APRIL 2022 | Too tough for folk and too blues influenced for country, LYNNE HANSON's brand of "porch music with a little red dirt" can turn on a dime from a sunshine, blue sky ballad to a full-on thunderstorm of gritty Americana swamp from one song to the next. She's known for her high-energy, roots guitar driven live performances.
