THERE may be no Rhythms of the World 2013 this summer, but music fans can still get their fix of bands that have played the festival over the coming months.
The new Roots & Roll Cafe event being held at Club 85 in Hitchin will be one such opportunity.
Hosted by ‘Roots & Roll’ band Beau Jangles, the Roots & Roll Cafe has teamed up with The Peel Club for this show, which features a cracking line-up, including two bands who were highlights of recent Rhythms Of The Worlds festivals – My First Tooth and The Folk.
Northampton four-piece My First Tooth have been playing festivals up and down the country, including Glastonbury, and are getting plaudits from all sides for their infectious alternative folk pop.
Young Hertfordshire all-girl trio The Folk were a revelation at last year’s Rhythms of the World with their sprightly indie pop-folk tunes.
Hitchin’s very own Beau Jangles and Guidokm will also be playing the Whinbush Road venue on Saturday night.
Promoter Roger King, from Club 85, said: “The Roots & Roll Cafe is a new regular event at Club 85 featuring a more relaxed ambience with seating and candles and styles of music less commonly showcased at the venue.
“From folk and roots to blues and rock ‘n’ roll, and everything in between and beyond.”
Door open at 7.45pm with the music kicking off from 8.15pm. Get there early to grab a seat.
Tickets for the 16 plus show cost £6.
