Roots @ The Roundhouse

Roots @ The Roundhouse
On 22nd January 2010 more than 30 singers, musicians and dancers came together at the Roundhouse, London to celebrate 30 years of fRoots magazine.

Judith Burrows took some evocative photos…

For the first time in nearly two decades, six members of the very legendary 3 Mustaphas 3 (a.k.a. The Young Mustaphas) came together to perform a greatest hit…

There were several great reunions on the night, one featuring Oysterband with June Tabor. This is their great version of a Velvet Underground classic.

Devon Sproule & Paul Curreri finished the show with a gorgeous version of White Cliffs Of Dover, joined by members of Oysterband and 3 Mustaphas 3.

Billy Bragg explained his folk music roots and sang Underneath The Arches, accompanied by The Blokes…

Martin Simpson and his band with Andy Cutting, Andy Seward & BJ Cole included Martin’s Dear Boy.

Ian King opened the show with his original mix of dub reggae and English folk, including Four Loom Weaver.

Justin Adams & Juldeh Camara tore the place up with some rocking desert blues.

Jim Moray came up with a newly condensed version of the traditional ballad Long Lankin.

Kristi Stassinopoulou & Stathis Kalyviotis came all the way from Athens to take part.

Zuzana Novak played some beautifully atmospheric mbira music.

There were lots of special guests and surprises during the evening including a Morris jig danced by Laurel Swift, with Will Pound on mouth organ.

America's Pamela Wyn Shannon came down from her new UK home in North Wales to sing Rambletide In Ambleside.
