Jimmy Webb: the American songwriter-singer accompanies his best-loved songs with compelling stories of his life

The London venue’s series of intimate shows returns with another eclectic mix of artists, including Jimmy Webb and Beth Orton

Now in its third year, the Roundhouse presents In the Round 2018, a series of shows devoted to intimate performances set in the venue’s iconic main space, staged in a rarely seen fully seated concert set up. The series runs from 31 January to 10 February with a programme of 10 shows, including premieres and special sets from an eclectic mix of artists.

Confirmed to appear are Malian superstar Oumou Sangaré whose soaring, powerful voice sits in stark contrast to the gritty unguarded voice of American songwriter-singer Jimmy Webb, who accompanies his best-loved songs with compelling stories of his life. Brightonian punk-folk-rockers Levellers perform a special acoustic set, while rapper Chip returns to his grime roots to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of his breakthrough mixtape.

Known for their hypnotic, mesmerising mix of jazz and electronica, GoGo Penguin premier brand new music while Portico Quartet return to their signature cinematic, minimalist sound. Geordie songstress Nadine Shah, known for her darkly powerful voice and bleak, yet compassionate lyrics and Beth Orton, one of the most unique and beguiling voices in British music. Plus, each night young artists from the Paul Hamlyn Roundhouse Studios will perform as support acts for the headline artist.

On each night, doors open at 7:00pm and ticket prices range from £15-25. For more details and to book tickets, go to:
