Description

Birmingham based Contemporary Folk and Roots night showcasing the next generation of breakthrough artists from the new British Folk Scene.


NATC offers a platform for some of the UKs most innovative, honest songwriters and dynamic interpreters of traditional song, bringing the breakthrough names of the modern underground scene to an attentive, artist focussed environment.

 

 

Jess Morgan

Jess Morgan is a songwriter's songwriter. A cerebral storyteller.  Her new album is a tumbler of unfancied folk-roots music, with heart, passion and gusto. As well as crafting songs, Jess also hand crafts her own DIY vinyl records. In a recent article The 405 called her "a true DIY artist in her element. Seriously, she does it all."

When it came for the Norwich-based singer-songwriter to start recording tracks on 'Edison Gloriette' Norway was calling. Jess returned to Bergen team-up with collaborators from her 2010 debut, producer HP Gundersen and producer and studio engineer Daniel Birkeland. She wanted to record slowly and meaningfully following a mad 5 years of touring and rapid releases. 2 weeks in a quiet cabin, alongside a fjord on the outskirts of Bergen was just the right change of pace to record Jess' acutely observed tales of life, love, people and places.

The past 5 years have seen Jess cement her place in the burgeoning folk, roots and Americana scene throughout the UK and Europe. Her music has attracted the ears of BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, Uncut, The Telegraph, The Guardian, R2 and Folk Radio UK, to name a few. New album 'Edison Gloriette' follows on from 2015 Jess release 'The Bournemouth EP' which sold-out its limited edition run in less than 24 hours.

 

Dan Hartland

Dan Hartland's literate songwriting and passionate performances have won over audiences across the UK. A singer-songwriter with an ear for melody, a facility for finger-picking and a wry humour on the stage, his sound fuses folk, country, rock and pop to arrive at a sound equal parts distinctive and accessible. Dan has previously supported the likes of Mark Olson, Kim Richey and Lisbee Stainton amongst others, and has a dynamic and engaging stage presence. His latest album, Young Man's Game, features eleven literate slices of rootsy, country-flecked folk. "Gets right underneath the topic he's writing about. Absolutely gorgeous - what an incredible voice." BBC Introducing "His well crafted songs offer a fine balance between heartache and joy." Americana UK
