‘Burnt Moth’, the second album from Welsh-born folk singer/songwriter James McArthur, was released in January 2017 to critical acclaim. James McArthur’s sincere yet tranquil vocals guide the wandering melodies of this album through the different folk scenes of the past, while the playful lyrics cast a contemporary feel, with a perspective like no-one else’s.
Samantha Whates is a London based singer and songwriter. Her beautifully crafted, poetic songs retain a strong affinity with her Scottish roots, cultivating a sound that is thoroughly contemporary, rooted in tradition, yet uniquely her own. She recently released her debut ‘Dark Nights Make For Brighter Day’s which has been enjoying both critical acclaim and radio play (BBC 6 Music, KCRW, Resonance FM).
About Union Theatre:
Headed up by Sasha Regan and her partner Neil Moors, The Union Theatre was set up in 1998 in an old warehouse just across the road from where the theatre is now based. The fringe theatre has recently moved to its new home in Union Yard Arches where it stages a variety of shows and performances. Over The Road Café which has been attached to the theatre for over 18 years is open for drinks before and after shows.
