Back to All Events

Jess Morgan 19:30 - 22:00

Songs that tell stories, claw-hammer-like guitar playing and a truly unique voice that binds the package tightly together…

2014 saw the release of a brand new album ‘Langa Langa’ which showcases a wind-fall of sizzling new songs and rhythmic guitar playing from this prolific writer from Norwich, already championed by BBC Folk Show’s host, Mark Radcliffe. Expect simple, evocative songs that tell stories, peppered with influence from British Folk as well as country, blues and world music. After an exciting year playing over one hundred shows including Cambrudge Folk Festival, Warwick Folk and Towersey, Jess is steadily building a name for herself as a grafter and a force to be reckoned with in roots and folk music in the UK and in Europe.

Funded by Fans and the centrepiece of a Pledge Music Campaign, Jess released her album ‘Aye Me’ back in 2012 building on the success of her Norwegian made debut release ‘All Swell’ (2010). Jess is championed by DJs from BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, Folk Radio UK and BBC Wales most notably by new music DJs Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson who have watched with interest as Jess has grown as an independent artist.
