On this third update I post more sets photographed in September, pretty eclectic mix as you will see.
It starts with a full on day starting in Hammersmith Apollo for a rehearsal of Tori Amos playing her two pianos ahead of her show.
I then made my way to the Tower of London for the opening of the Tower festival, featuring violinist Nigel Kennedy.
And finally I went to Great Portland Street at the 229 club to catch the headliners of the Fistful Of Fandango festival, Future Of The Left, an amazing band I had photographed a few times in the past, great show. I arrived before the end of the second to last performance that night, Victorian English Gentlemens Club.
Another night in this update was American folk singer songwriter Alela Diane at the Shepherds Bush Empire, accompanied on stage by her dad, musician as well.
On the next night I was at the Royal Albert Hall for Michael Ball, although had to shoot from the sound desk, which does not leave much room for interpretation.
And to finish on this long update yet two other different styles with two shows at the Southbank Center on the 25th of September. First were Fusion/latino band Peyoti For President performing in the front room, were the audience shy at first ended up dancing to the beat of the songs from these “conquistadors of political punk” as wrote Time Out.
This was followed by a very impressive performance in the Purcell Room by Nathan “flutebox” Lee, accompanied by Wandan (beatbox) and Hanif Khan (percussions). Nathan does both flute and the beat with his mouth for a truly impressive sound, but my words don’t give it justice, I suggest you type his name in Youtube to see for yourslef! This show was presented by Howard Marks
