Gabriel Moreno is a Gibraltarian poet and singer songwriter who has been performing for the past 20 years in Gibrlatar, Peru, Italy, Spain, USA and the United Kingdom. His folk songs are both poetic and political, mining the same rich seams as Leonard Cohen, Fabrizio D'Andre and Georges Brassens. In 2015 he joined up with The Quivering Poets, Basha Bartz, Pablo Campos, Pablo Yupton, Adam Beattie and Sergio Contreras to create a wonderful new alt-folk band that push his poetry and song to new musical territories. Gabriel also hosts the legendary folk institution 'The Lantern Society', running for the last ten years at London's Betsey Trotwood venue.

Martha Hill and her three piece band played New Roots at The Harrison on September last, their debut London performance. To say they were good doesn't come anywhere close- they were jaw-droppingly, heart-stoppingly brilliant. Fusing soul, edgy indie, acoustic folk, and contemporary pop to stunning effect, they succeed in bringing four disparate strands into one perfect, coherent whole. It's a sound that feels as though it's been around forever, and at the same time utterly contemporary and cutting-edge. Hill's superb, stop-you-in-your-tracks jazz-blues voice and unshirkingly honest, kitchen sink lyrical style summons the ghost of Amy Winehouse, backed up by superbly original, starkly minimal arrangement from her band. Hers was without question the New Roots gig of the year in 2017, don't miss out this time around.
