He will be creating a podcast for those who couldn’t come. “The idea is that if people haven’t got the time to go to see live music or to mindfully listen to an album all the way through, I could go to them, and in the time of the average interaction on Instagram (2 mins), they could conveniently watch some live music.” Follow our social media to find out his progress on the day!
