This Sunday’s free Bandstand Busk will be a particularly special one, so far as FFS are concerned, featuring as it will two of our very favourite bands. Troubador and -esses Peggy Sue, and bigger-than-a-football team Sons of Noel and Adrian will be appearing at Northampton Square Bandstand from 3pm on Sunday, 6th September.
These loveliest of bands will also be appearing together at the ICA on 6th November, so if you fancy a free preview, this is an ideal chance. See our article on that upcoming gig here for ticket information and the like.
To give you an idea of previous high calibre busks, the most recent acts to take part in a free busk have been King Creosote, Woodpigeon, Kill it Kid, Fanfarlo, Theoretical Girl, Slow Club, Wildbirds and Peacedrums and Alessi’s Ark. Coincidentally, that’s also the bulk of FFS’s CD Christmas list. The keepers of the bandstand sure know what they’re doing.
Check out the Bandstand Busking website for recordings of previous performances from all these lovely bands and more, then hop on down on Sunday for some free delectation.
