Live next week...The Roots Union
Tobias Ben Jacob: vocals, guitar
Phillip Henry: dobro, harmonica, beatbox
Hannah Martin: violin, backing vocals
"Every once in a while a band come along who don’t need to rely on a barrage of hyperbole to get your attention. Their music speaks plainly and compellingly for itself. The Roots Union are such a band. The Exeter and Brighton based four- piece wield acoustic guitars, Dobro slide guitar, harmonica, violin, drums and four– part harmonies. They are Tobias Ben Jacob, Phillip Henry, Hannah Martin and Michael Sykes. The band have already played shows at venues across the South, on the UK festival circuit and even as far afield as Hamburg. They have just finished a much anticipated new EP with producer Nick Gordon in Exeter and are gearing up for a very busy year ahead."
