Genevieve Dawson is a singer songwriter originally from Edinburgh, now based in South-East London. Bringing together a frank lyrical style with a warmth and soulfulness that inhabits the same alt-folk terrain as Laura Marling and Ani DiFranco, her rich and sophisticated sound pulls influence from jazz and folk in equal measure. She has recently completed studies in composition at Goldsmiths University of London, following in the footsteps of James Blake and Rosie Lowe, amongst many other esteemed alumni. She plays tonight backed by her full band.


Combining heartfelt storytelling with close harmonies and finger-picked guitar, Shayler & Brooke make contemporary folk music infused with raw vulnerability, humour and warmth, that draws on traditions from both sides of the Atlantic, .The duo launched their debut EP, Colouring Outside the Lines, in September 2017.


New Roots is committed to promoting events that shine a light on up and coming talent in the UK alt-folk 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 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.
