Communion January line-up revealed

Folk club night Communion has announced the line-up for the first show of 2009 at Notting Hill Arts Club.

The gig on 4th January, organised by Kevin Jones of Cherbourg and Ben Lovett of Mumford and Sons, will feature FFS darlings Peggy Sue alongside Ark People, Sam MacCarthy, Sons of Noel and Adrian and Thomas J Speight. Headlining will be Exlovers, who Kevin and Ben describe as ‘a cross between Elliot Smith and the Beatles’.

Following on from Communion Christmas Carols in December, which was headlined by Mumford and Sons and included a surprise set from Laura Marling and a cameo on the drums by Jay Jay Pistolet, doors for the event open at 6pm. FFS recommends getting there early.
