Folkroom- Fortnightly folk gig

Featuring the very best new and unsigned acts from across the UK and frequently beyond. Celebrating folk in all its forms from contemporary to traditional, Americana to blues and everything in between.

24/10: LOUIS BRENNAN. KATE STAPLEY. ARIANA BROPHY

One more gig before the clocks change. Before we are sucked into a long, dark winter unlike any the UK has seen before. Folkroom is here for you, though, with some of the best music around. The night is free, so come and join us!

LOUIS BRENNAN - We've been putting together our favourite albums of the past decade recently. There are some great records up near the top. Sufjan Stevens. Christine and the Queens. Rihanna. And, of course, Louis Brennan. 2018's Dead Capital is an absolute stunner. The sort of record that finds beauty in the shabbiest, dirtiest, saddest of times. Louis sings with the timbre of an antique wardrobe. Walnut, if we had to guess. There's a huge weight and dignity to songs that deal, frequently, with the indignity of the moment.

KATE STAPLEY - Talking of the best records of the past decade - 'Centella' might technically be an EP, but we've been sure to make room for what is, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful and moving releases in recent memory. Her songs have room to become contemporary folk classics. Kate remains an irresistible live act, too, so don't miss a much anticipated return to the Village.

ARIANA BROPHY - Gorgeous, evocative songs are Ariana Brophy's wheelhouse. Her music is perfect for the darkening of the winter months - cosy, and warm. A musical fireside to settle down beside. Ariana's second album, Naked, came out this summer, and is an absolute joy.

7/11: ROBBIE SKITMORE. DG SOLARIS. SAIRIE

It's that time of the year again - the weather is cold, the nights are dark, and the only sensible thing to do after work on a Thursday is to hunker down in a Toby Jug-filled pub and watch great live music. WE ARE HERE FOR YOU.

ROBBIE SKITMORE - With his backing band of local heroes, The Spanish Harlem Incident, Canadian singer-songwriter Robbie Skitmore remains one of the joys of Brighton's live music scene. His irresistible songs touch on folk, Americana and alt-rock - performed live, they come to represent everything we love about gigs. There's so much love poured into, and out of, everything Robbie Skitmore does.

DG SOLARIS - A new musical project from Danny Green of Laish! Teaming up with his wife, DG Solaris make woozy, irresistible songs that will pull you lovingly back to warmer times. Danny's always been one of our favourite writers for big pop melodies and wry, slightly detached delivery. We can't wait to welcome DG Solaris to Folkroom by Sea for the first time!

SAIRIE - There's a strange magic to Sairie's music, which recalls the 70's folk revival (and hints of our old favourite - the Wicker Man soundtrack!). Based locally, Sairie look to be another vital part of Sussex's increasingly exciting and varied folk scene.

Join us! The night is free, though we'll do a collection to save our musician pals from starving to death in the post-Brexit apocalypse.
