Ed Harcourt – Standing up for grassroots venues
Ed Harcourt is coming to Latest Music Bar!
Mercury-nominated singer, songwriter, musician, collaborator and producer Ed Harcourt will be performing a special piano show at Latest Music Bar on July 27th as part of the United By Music Tour.
With 1 grassroots music venue closing each week, the tour will highlight the importance of these local venues in artists’ careers, as part of the music ecosystem, and as important local cultural hubs.
“It’s truly heartbreaking”, As Ed put it. “Since I was 18 years old, I have been performing in countless clubs & bars across our land, legendary sanctuaries for all to converge, nights I can’t remember & memories I can’t forget! They have been the vibrant springboards, places where I honed & learnt how to perform live & where I find myself returning to time & time again.”
“By doing this tour with the patronage of the MVT & their United By Music campaign, I hope we can not only raise awareness of the threat so many of these venues face but provide you, the punters, with a magnificent night out & an excuse to get out and support live music & the grassroots venues that host us all.”
The United By Music Tour is funded by The National Lottery, allowing every ticket buyer can take a guest with them for free with proof of a valid Lottery product.
