Iron and Oak : 8pm

Following a year of gigging and writing as a trio, Iron & Oak are pleased to present tonight the debut release of the band's first cd, "Beg, Borrow or Steal", at UTEA. The 13-track cd of mostly original songs and live tracks was recorded and produced in Chepstow by bluesman Paul Hobday (with live tracks recorded by Vic Curtis), who features on guest instrumentals on the cd and will be joining the band tonight.


Iron & Oak (Sarana VerLin and Heather Bristow from America, and James Slater from the UK) could well be the inventor of a new musical genre: Folk Stroke Ameri-cana. Bringing you roots music influences from both sides of the ocean, their style is a fusion of Contemporary Folk, Alt-Country, Swampy Blues, Old-Timey/Bluegrass and Red Dirt music. Their musical chemistry is based around their entwining voices and sublime harmonies, bedded on a layer of rhythmic guitar and sweet smoky vio-lin. Individually, they’ve toured UK, Europe, USA and Canada. Together as singer-songwriters they perform their own compositions along with original arrangements of old and new songs…performing songs of love and loss…some grit, some sweet-ness, some darkness, some light…all with a bit of humour along the way. The band was first formed in 2015 by James and Sarana; Heather joined in 2016, debuting as a guest at Iron & Oak's Nov. 2015 gig at the arts centre.


It all makes for a well-rounded performance that is fresh, engaging, and immensely enjoyable.
