This month’s Folk and Roots festival in London will naturally showcase some of the finest artists around in the UK at the moment. Among the gigs available to go and see for capital based folk fans, boutique record label Folkstock Records will be hosting two Emerging Artists gigs over the next couple of weeks.
To celebrate the gigs, they have released a compilation album called ‘Downtown’. All eight artists from their Emerging Artists shows will be making an appearance, and as you can hear above they represent quite a range of styles withint the roots arena.
Whether you’re looking for dirty, earthy traditional folk or a pop-folk hybrid, there will be something here to satisfy all needs. So, have a listen to the tracks above, get the album, and then choose which of the gigs to head down to. You could always treat yourself to both!
