Our Atlantic Roots


Cornwall based married duo, Our Atlantic Roots (Mac and Laura Johnston) bring an uplifting blend of American & British alt-folk, with harmonies that are rich, dynamic and unite beautifully. The couple started songwriting together 10 years ago after meeting in North Carolina. Mac’s guitar playing is full of character and accompanies lyrics that are both poetic and direct, hopeful, and authentic. The duo has been praised by hit songwriter Mark Cawley (Tina Turner, Paul Carrack, Kathy Mattea) for their skillful writing and by folk patriarch Geoff Lakeman for their live performance. Mac and Laura present a blend of the cultures they are individually from, by merging various genres characterized by their country and folk roots. With over 3.7 million streams and hundreds of live shows under their belts, as well as national BBC TV and countless BBC Introducing features, they are an emerging act that are well worth keeping an eye on. Their new EP ‘Memories Live On’ releases spring 2024 and they will be touring throughout the UK this year.
