Levellers, Beth Orton and Oumou Sangaré are amongst the lineup for In The Round 2018
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. Fast becoming a fixture of the music-lovers' calendar, the series runs from 31 January to 10 February with a programme of ten very special shows, including premieres and special sets from an eclectic mix of artists.
Confirmed to appear so far 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 very special acoustic set while Chip, one of the UK’s most celebrated rappers returns to his grime roots to celebrate the ten-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.
