Live and Graphic Presents:

A very special, one-night-only showcase of international singer/songwriter talent.
As these artists are only in town for a few days (for the Americana Festival), Live and Graphice thought we’d get them together at Roadtrip & The Workshop, their favourite Shoreditch juke joint/shebeen, for a few stripped back songs. NOT TO BE MISSED!

ON THE BILL:

Paul J Bolger – Hailing from Waterford City in Ireland. Paul has had a long career as a renowned artist, illustrator, animator & director. He has recently been dipping his toes back into the world of music with great results. He is busy on the live circuit with his blend of rock/folk/country, including many shows supporting Horslips. Through this live work Paul has landed a record deal with Canadian label Wolfe Island Records. Debut album out in Spring 2020.

Izaak Opatz – Izaak will be coming down from the mountains of Montana for a few days, to treat London to his songs which “teeter on the edge of sentimental-songwriter’y-sad-n-lonely crap. This is a very tough area for a songwriter to inhabit. Mainly because it’s so easy to get lumped in with the rest of the middle-aged losers down at the Applebee’s open mic (next to the airport). BUT IZAAK DOES IT SO WELL that you actually start making plans to visit Montana”.

Lara Taubman – Lara is a performing singer and songwriter based out of New York City. As a folksinger, she likes to sing you her stories of yearning, love, loss and freedom accompanied by her guitar. Lara is a labelmate of Paul’s on Wolfe Island Records. Also releasing her debut album in spring 2020.

Billy King – Dubliner Billy is no stranger to London stages, having led several bands such as Drunken Balordi. Tonight we see shit-kickin’ Billy take no prisoners, with a short set of self-penned country/folk/blues numbers … parental advisory!
