FOR The Love Of Folk, the live acoustic music night where the audience can get creative too, returns to Hemel’s Indy Jax next week with another superb line-up.

Travelling all the way from Calgary in Canada Michael Bernard Fitzgerald’s tunes are cool, catchy and easy-going.

His last album, The MBF Love LP, which was released in June 2009 is a combination of folk, soul, and R&B with a bit of rock too.

MBF is currently working on material for his new album. 

Molotov Jukebox is fronted by Natalia Tena who is starring in the latest Harry Potter Movie, Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part Two.

They’re a six-piece band with a variety of instruments including violin, accordian, bass, trumpet, guitar and drums. They create an infusion of different sounds mixing flamenco, reggae, ska, funk & dubstep, creating a new wave of music they call Gypstep. They’ve recently toured Brazil and are playing legendary music venues like Ronnie Scotts and The Jamboree Club in London. Singer/songwriter Samantha Whates was born in Bridgnorth, Shropshire and spent her formative years in the Middle East, Scotland, and England. She’s now based in London where she performs live at many of the capital’s top venues, including The Electroacoustic Club, Cargo and the Strongroom Bar.

Her music has much in common with contemporary Scandinavian music where a lot of importance is placed on the subtleties of tone, timbre and atmospherics.

Her songs are reflective and always honest – dealing with everyday issues.

For The Love Of Folk will be at Indy Jax, 168a Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead on Thursday, March 10, 7.30pm.

Tickets will be available on the door at a cost of £5, or go online to book at
