Communion, the U.K.’s most revered live music promotions team, are pleased to announce details of their greatly anticipated move into the U.S. with a very special “Communion In The Redwoods” 3-day party and the debut Communion U.S. Tour.
Communion is the brainchild of Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett, his close ally, Kevin Jones, and renowned producer Ian Grimble. Born out of a London basement bar in 2006, Communion very quickly became the home to some of the U.K.’s most accomplished and praised young musicians as well as the go-to team for promoting and encouraging fresh, emerging talent in London and beyond. Communion offered an early live platform to artists including Laura Marling, Noah and the Whale, Marcus Foster and Anna Calvi (who was promptly selected as one of the BBC’s Sounds Of 2011 nominees after Communion’s early support).
Built solely on a freedom of expression, an ear for a tune and a celebration of exactly what the live music experience should be all about, Communion and its broad-minded, ever-evolving family have made light work of discovering and nurturing what MOJO calls a “new generation of songwriter.”
Heralded across the British press for its community spirit and an enviable reputation for introducing some of the globe’s most highly acclaimed young acts, Communion’s events have become the U.K.’s foremost home for eclectic, exciting parties to respectful, passionate music fans.
Having already promoted events in Dublin, Sydney and a handful of introductory parties in Brooklyn,
Communion is very proud to be launching in the U.S. with a slew of forthcoming events.
