The Tarzanelli Brothers spring from the natural agreement between the violin and the accordion, but also from the encounter between two musicians. Pablo and Baltazar created their folk duo in 2007: Baltazar brings his Hungarian influence, his talent as an improviser, and his very personal way of making his instrument vibrate. Pablo brings to bear his Italian influences, his steady rhythmical accompaniment and his range of basses, perfectly sustaining the violin, and keeping a very lively contact with the dance and the dancers. They will take you on a trip, and will make you travel, laugh, cry, and dance. Relax, and let them invite you into their universe…
Dragoman – At a time when the mainstream is dominated by soft, unrelentingly cautious music, Dragoman aims to provide a beacon for those craving something more. On a never-ending quest to push sonic boundaries, Dragoman spends days (and nights) on end in his Bristol studio doing what he does. His debut album, Underbelly was released in early 2017.
Folk at the New Room is a monthly concert in a beautiful 18th Century chapel.
Gigs take place on a Thursday evening at 7.30pm, with doors at 7pm. The New Room cafe is open beforehand from 6.30pm serving drinks, soup, and a delicious selection of homemade cakes.
Launching in November 2017 with Methera, Folk at the New Room has welcomed artists including Laura Smyth & Ted Kemp, and Bristol Folk Singers, with many more exciting local and international artists to come throughout 2018.
