Cosy up at Acoustic Sunday down in The Crypt, De Beauvoir on the 4th December at SoundAdviceUK’s Acoustic Sunday for an exclusive festive shindig celebrating the finest live music East London has to offer.
With fantastic street food, local artisan crafters, festive fizz and mulled wine to get you in the mood December’s Acoustic Sundays is a celebration of an incredible year of support, new ventures and collaborations for SoundadviceUK’s Acoustic Sundays. See out the last Acoustic Sunday of the year in style with a hot mix of fresh musical talent and stalwart musicians making a welcome return to the stage.
MC James Ross of Quantum Leopard will be kicking things off with the Open-mic Sessions followed by Phoebe Katis narrating her muse, through music dancing between soulful ballads, and sophisticated jazz-pop fusions.
Michael Mohanty will perform a stripped-back set of songs about love, loss and transformation, whilst Singer-songwriter and rapper Bleed These Colours returns with heartfelt lyrics, punchy rhythms and captivating choruses.
The Barbarian Horde - the big man-big instrument /small man-smaller instrument duo will take you on a journey through a landscape of people spending time with people they don't really like, plans to escape the metropolis and live off tofu, and the inherent dangers of scouting (in the USA).
Lucy Evans brings powerful yet delicate vocals with understated beauty. Afro-fusion project, Nelson & Friends blends Mozambique music with jazz and funk.
Providing some much needed sustenance will be street food pop-up sensation, 2 Fingers – ‘London’s original fish finger bad boys’ who will be back in residence with their much esteemed fish finger sandwiches to keep the cold at bay.
Acoustic Sundays’ Sensibly Priced Pop-up-Bar this month feature the now infamous ‘home-brew’ - home-made Ginger-beer made with fair-trade fresh root ginger and lemons. For those who like to ‘drop it like it’s hot’, cuddle up to a cup of lightly-spiced mulled wine with soothing undertones of cinnamon, clove and star anise to raise your spirits! And for added festive cheer, Acoustic Sundays very own pop-up Christmas market will be selling Christmas cards, hats, scarves and knitted blankets.
Looking back on an incredible year of community ventures, collaborations and pop-ups SoundadviceUK’s Acoustic Sundays have blown away audiences with this year’s ‘Summer Sessions’ transforming De Beauvoir Square into a mini-festival, the launch of the now thriving community space in Hackney Wick, Hub67 and firmly establishing the Open-mic Sessions at the Beast of Brixton.
Acoustic Sundays has been nominated for 5 UK Festival Awards this year, including Best Small Festival, Best Family Festival and Best Metropolitan Festival.
See you on the 4th December, 2pm at The Crypt Café
