Presented by Moving on Music, the inaugural Beat Root will see a weekend of alternative roots music at Belfast’s Crescent Arts Centre across Thursday, September 4 to Sunday, September 6.

A brew of “old-folk”, “new-folk”, world, balladry and electronics, the weekender will see three downright unmissable shows: acclaimed collective The Furrow Collective on the Thursday night, LA born, Barcelona-based audiovisual artist Grey Filastine and Javanese indie vocalist and rapper Nova AKA Filastine and Nova on the Friday night and, on Saturday evening, our very own Robyn G Shiels and Newcastle’s Richard Dawson.

Tickets are priced at £10 per night with a three-day ticket costing just £22.50. Go here for additional info and to buy tickets.
