Rob Corcoran & Necessary Evils Summer Shindig

ROB CORCORAN & THE NECESSARY EVILS + really really really special guests: COPPER VIPERGABI GARBUTT, JASON MCNIFF – at Paper Dress Vintage on Tues 27 August!

Limited advance tickets available here!

Singer-songwriter; teller of ludicrous stories (most of them true); lauded and covered by folk icon Christy Moore; captain of the amazing musical team known as “Rob Corcoran & the Necessary Evils”; accidental creator of their own brand of “Toe-Tapping, Heart-On-Sleeve Americana…with a Dublin Accent.”

“This man Rob can surely sing, and he has a great band behind him. He says something that needs to be said” CHRISTY MOORE

“Songs that weave their spell in intricate and intimate ways / I implore you to check him out because this guy is rather special”


Literate punk pixie, adopted Londoner and upright social crusader Gabi Garbutt knows a thing or two about beauty. And darkness, for that matter. With a tour with Edwin Collins on the horizon, and the launch of her debut album happening on September 24th (the slaughtered Lamb) the world is her oyster and she’s destined for greatness. Go see her now, while you can.

Copper Viper is an acoustic folk duo from London, comprised of prolific songwriter and guitarist Robin Joel Sangster and fiddle/mandolin player Duncan Menzies. Drawing inspiration from the British folk and American country/bluegrass traditions.

Jason McNiff is a London based Yorkshireman of Irish and Polish descent. He has made five records of what is loosely described as Folk or Americana, yet there is something very British about him. As Time Out attests, “McNiff’s quiet, intimate, fragile-sounding vocals draw you into his world– an almost timeless place, through which he drifts, a romantic loner, a dreamer, at home with the blues.” He is often touted as one of the UK’s most overlooked musical treasures – a great songwriter and top-notch finger-style guitarist.
