Emily Mae Winters - Rising Folk/Americana Star
📅 Friday 5 October 2018
Chapel Arts Centre, St James Memorial Hall.
“If I had to predict the path for EMW, there’ll be Radio 2 folk awards, respect will be gained. There’s a depth to her talent and an ease about her performance that bode well… I expect one day I’ll use the phrase ‘sounds like Emily Mae Winters’.”
Fast rising star on the UK. Folk/Americana scene Emily Mae Winters has that rare quality in a singer that makes critics reach for the superlatives. Following the success of her award winning debut album ‘Siren Serenade’ Emily embarks on a brand new album pre release tour this October with a full band. Hailed as having a voice that will stop you in your tracks, 2017 saw Winters earn a host of emerging artist awards including winning the Guardian Song-Writing Contest. Her second album ‘High Romance’ will be produced by Matt Ingram (Florence and the Machine, Laura Marling, The Staves) at the prestigious London’s Urchin Studios this Winter.
Emily was born in Birmingham but as a small child moved to Clonakilty in Ireland, where her love for folk music was influenced by the Celtic local folk scene. She performed at local venues, honing her talents as a singer accompanying herself on the guitar.
Later on, Emily moved to London and worked at the Poetry society in London, doing workshops for young people. She also trained as an actress, and performed Shakespeare as Ophelia in Hamlet with a touring company playing fringe theatre shows.
Emily’s three loves are Words, Music and The Arts. It is not surprising that one of the reviewers wrote: “Almost filigree like in construction, glittering, but still able to breathe… “Siren Serenade” will be wrecking ships for decades, the enchantment too hard to resist" Fatea Magazine

From The Jam - All Mod Cons 40th Anniversary
📅 Sunday 14 October 2018
Komedia BA1 1EP
From the Jam is comprised of legendary former ‘The Jam’ bassist Bruce Foxton, vocalist & guitarist Russell Hastings, drummer Mike Randon, and Andy Fairclough on Hammond and piano. This Autumn the band will be celebrating the 40th Anniversary of The Jam’s 3rd studio album, All Mod Cons, playing it in its entirety. As well as classics such as ‘Down in The Tube Station at Midnight’ and ‘A Bomb in Wardour Street’ the band are also excited about playing ‘Billy Hunt’, ‘Mr Clean’ and the ‘The Butterfly Collector’, which only featured on the US release of All Mod Cons originally.
“Blown away by this band- you must see them if you can!”
- Jeremy Vine, BBC Radio 2
Over the past 11 years From the Jam have toured relentlessly, having played almost 1000 headline shows in the UK since their inception in 2007. Throughout this time, they’ve gained a reputation for the kind of incendiary live performances that sealed the reputation of The Jam all those years ago, being described as “incredibly exciting” by the Daily Mirror and “sounding dynamic as ever” by the Daily Record.
“The energy in rehearsals is great and we’re really looking forward to getting back on the road!”
“A sincere touch and lashings of fiery rock’n’roll”
- Guitar and Bass
In 2007 Russell Hastings was fronting ‘The Gift’ (which featured Rick Buckler) when he was joined on stage by Bruce Foxton (who was touring with Casbah Club) for a ‘one off’ performance. This performance sparked the genesis of From The Jam, and an enduring partnership between Foxton & Hastings.
Off-stage Foxton and Hastings wrote the album, ‘Back In The Room’ released in 2012, which received critical acclaim and solidified Foxton & Hastings as an excellent and contemporary song writing duo. They then returned to the studio in 2016 to record and release ‘Smash The Clock’, which reached number 31 in the UK charts. The album also entered the independent album chart at number 4, whilst the vinyl edition entered the vinyl chart at number 7.
“From The Jam, best night out I have had in years all The Jam hits and more done to perfection what's not to love!?” - Alan McGee, Creation Management
On December 1st 2017, to celebrate 10 years since From The Jam formed , Bruce Foxton and Russell Hastings released From ‘The Jam Live!’, featuring songs performed at various venues across the UK.
