Phil Simpson, formerly an agent with Yorkshire-based Adastra, has announced the launch of a new booking agency focused on acoustic, folk and roots artists.

Simpson says he hopes to represent and support a range of artists from the folk and roots genres, both in the UK and beyond, with The Young’uns, The Hut People and Ahab already on his roster.

Simpson told CMU: “There are simply too many outstanding acts yet to be discovered – and certainly many with real potential to become established names on the music scene”.
