The Boatshed started as a music blog. The aim was to write about music that we thought was really good – that we thought other people would also love. We then started putting on shows with some of those bands that we really believed in. We now put on regular shows in London, publish articles on exciting new music, interview bands and make videos of bands in interesting and amazing places.

The Boatshed is a virtual space where this all meets – a place to hear new bands, find out about interesting live shows in London, read the thoughts of some extremely cool dudes and watch beautiful videos.

If you would like to contribute or get involved in any way then please get in contact. We love talking to people, and love ideas.

The Boatshed

Rachel Sermanni. The Folk-Noir balladeer is on the road, again, with a new studio Album, Tied To The Moon.

2015 will see her touring in celebration of the record and with a collection of her drawings - nudes and dreams - following their debut exhibition in Edinburgh in 2014.

Rachel is 23. Has been singing her songs since leaving school. Channelling spirits of all ages and archetypes. Weaving images of childhood, womanhood, of instinct and inhibition simply with the breath in her lungs, a hardy martin guitar and a bandolin called Sue.

She's travelled all over, singing.
Most recently:
Iceland Airwaves Festival.
Canada; touring solo and as support. Various, prestigious festivals: Calgary Folk Fest, Interstellar Rodeo, Dawson City Music Festival where she recorded her Live Album with Jennifer Austin on Piano.
Australia over the festive period for the amazing Woodford Folk Fe
