BEAT ROOT – a weekend of alternative roots music in Belfast

Welcome to the first edition of Beat Root
Beat Root brings the very best of alternative roots music to Belfast over three days in September.

This first year we are thrilled to present a line-up featuring the Furrow Collective (Emily Portman, Alasdair Roberts, Lucy Farrell, and Rachel Newton), Filastine & Nova; delivering the grittiest transnational bass music around with their live A/V show, our very own Robyn G Shiels, and Newcastle’s skewed troubadour Richard Dawson (“English folk equivalent of Captain Beefheart’s deconstruction of the blues” The Guardian)

It’s a serious brew of ‘old-folk’, ‘new-folk’, ‘world’, ‘balladry’, and ‘electronics’. Mostly though, it’s good old-fashioned storytelling though incredible music, and we hope you enjoy!

Tickets are priced at £10 per night with a 3-day ticket costing just £22.50.

All gigs take place in The Crescent Arts Centre, Thurs 3 Sept – Sat 5 Sept.
