Roots and Shoots, the Institute of Contemporary Art’s showcase of music emerging from the folk scene, kicks off this weekend in London, with artwork, flyers, a logo and an ink stamp created by illustrator Rob Ryan. An ex-Royal College of Art print-maker, Ryan has an eclectic, freehand style, borrowing from poetry, collage and music. Roots and Shoots will seek to blend a traditional folk heritage with blues, electronica, Americana, country, jazz and psychedelic influences. It is on from 6pm to 2am on Saturday.
