Ahab are a singer-songwriter collective, formed in July 2009 after being invited to play the annual 'Fanfare' festival in Nashville, Tennessee. Following a successful week-long residency tearing the roof off at Tootsies Orchid Lounge, they came back to Dalston and decided to make the collaboration permanent. After a year spent writing new material and layering the songs thick with harmonies, Ahab decided to hit the streets of London's markets to put their name around. Two months of busking and the band were asked by the police not to play at markets anymore as the crowds that had began to gather whenever they played were blocking the streets. Now having recruited a drummer they are setting their sights on playing actual gigs with real mics and everything!

Birds of Chicago, is a collective based around JT Nero and Allison Russell. Whether touring as a duo or with the full family band, Nero and Russell have emerged as two of the most compelling new voices in North American Roots music. Nero’s fractured country-soul voice wrapped in Russell’s silver and gold tones is a fine thing. Not too perfect, not at all saccharine, you’ll hear echoes of mountain gospel, street corner doo-wop, classic soul. Accompanied by just a banjo and a guitar, it’s chilling. Fired by a full band, it’s a full tilt revival.
Birds Of Chicago tour dates
BBC Radio 2 Horizon Award nominees Katriona Gilmore and Jamie Roberts have been performing together on the folk scene since 2006. Their self-penned material ranges from blazing instrumentals to 'heart-wrenching' songs, to contemporary arrangements of traditional songs. Jamie's dextrous percussive and lap-style guitar work is a visual as well as a sonic delight, while Katriona's intricate fiddle playing shifts seamlessly from sensitive to fiery and back again in the blink of an eye.
