You can now pre-order your vinyl copy of Communion and get the mp3 files now! I have got mine, I will review it sometime but I am only on the first song so far! For people who don’t know, Communion is a folk night organised by Ben Lovett (yummy keyboard player of Mumford and Sons) and Kevin Jones (ex-Cherbourg). They have lots of lovely wonderful bands playing, including Mumford and Sons, Laura Marling, Peggy Sue, Blue Roses, Alessi and lots lots more. They have also expanded and now do nights in Leeds. They are all listed on the ‘Leeds Gigs’ page above. So this record is like a selection of lots of bands which have performed at Communion. They are all based around the ‘nu-folk’ scene in London and includes the likes of Johnny Flynn, Peggy Sue, Alessi, Pete Roe, Jesse Quin and Mumford and Sons among many others. It looks to be very special! You can get it here
In other news, Peggy Sue will be playing album launch gigs in Leeds, Glasgow and London at the end of March. You can get a special ticket which means you get the album along with a ticket, in Leeds this is all for £11! Amazing! Go here for ticket info.
And also, Marina and the Diamonds is going on quite a big tour in May. Tickets go on general sale on Friday morning, but the pre-sale for people signed up for the fan section on her website is tomorrow.
