You knew it, we knew it… Not even wild horses could keep us from bringing you a slice of live End of the Road magic. Since you can’t come to us this year, we’ll come to you … we present ‘In the Garden of Streaming’ recorded live from Larmer Tree Gardens.
In The Garden Of Streaming starts at 6.30 pm on Sunday 6th September, tune in here: live.endoftheroadfestival.com
On Sunday 6th September, we will mark this year’s postponed festival with stellar live performances, alongside workshops, Q&As and more, bringing all the magic of the Gardens into your own home. In true End of The Road spirit, we have selected some of of the most exciting new music that we have been listening to lately.
Festival sweethearts Squid, who were the talk of the weekend last year after playing a whopping three sets to wild acclaim, return to End of The Road as headliners ready to disrupt your living room (and your neighbours).
Rising star Billy Nomates, aka Tor Maries, is an authentic, authoritative and frequently funny performer who recorded her debut album with Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, no less. Last seen mesmerising the audience at End of The Road’s Christmas shindig, Katy J Pearson will be performing songs from her anticipated debut album Return while fellow West Country troubadours The Golden Dregs bring their punchy debut Lafayette, packed full of wry wit, bittersweet ennui and simmering beauty.
Forever championing new talent, we’re delighted to introduce London-based four-piece Modern Woman who have been creating a whirlwind of buzz through their electrifying live shows without a note of music being released yet.
The evening will also feature a one off collaborative improvisation between two drummers Morgan Simpson of black midi and Kwake Bass, recorded at The Room studios and presented by our friends at Loud And Quiet. Plus a live drawing workshop with resident End Of The Road artist Dan Jamieson, Q&As with special guests and an array of electrifying surprises to light up your living room.
We owe a huge debt of thanks to all of you for sticking with us this year. We can’t thank you enough but we’re not out of the woods yet. We’ve pulled out all the stops to bring you an evening of live performance, and we want as many of you to join us as possible so this event is available free of charge. If you feel you can, we’d really appreciate your contributions toward covering our costs. 20% of all proceeds will go to our long term local charity partner CODA MUSIC TRUST.
Before we go, a big thank you for your support, your encouragement, and for keeping the independent spirit of End of The Road alive.
We can’t wait to have a beer with you all soon.
For now, see you in cyberspace!
