THE Kontra Roots Club returns tomorrow night with sets by Mellow Peaches, Richard Warren and Rene Rae.

Acoustic blues duo, Mellow Peaches, play ragtime and roots music from the Black Country. Heavily influenced by country blues and jazz, Amit and Rich play original songs with an old time good-time feel.

Warren is well known for his time playing with the likes of Spiritualized and Starsailor and specialises in ‘crepuscular country-soul’, gothic blues and lounge crooning with a David Lynch kind of ambience.

Singer-songwriter Rae is from Stamford and has built up a solid reputation combining slice-of-life songs with distinctive narrative stories.

She is returning to live performance after a long break due to illness.

Kontra takes place at Kennedy’s Bar in Irthlingborough Road, Finedon.

Music begins at 8pm. Admission is free.
