This is very exciting. A three-day festival in the redwoods at Fernwood Resort Oct. 21-23rd. Confirmed bands so far include Jackie Greene, the Secret Sisters, John Vanderslice, Forrest Day, and many more (with more being added.)
Communion, the U.K.’s most revered live music promotions team, are pleased to announce further details of their greatly anticipated move into the U.S, with Communion In The Redwoods, a 3-day gathering taking place October 21-23 in Big Sur, CA in association with (((folkYEAH!))) Presents.
(((folkYEAH!))) Presents in Big Sur has been the host to some incredible shows recently including Arcade Fire, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gillian Welch, MGMT, The Chris Robinson Brotherhood and Fleet Foxes among others. Continuing in the spirit of Communion by presenting distinctive performances in unique settings, Communion In The Redwoods will take place at Fernwood in the majestic Redwoods of Big Sur, California.
Communion is the brainchild of Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett, his close ally, Kevin Jones, and renowned producer Ian Grimble. Formed in London in 2006, it began as a monthly showcase, known as Communion nights, at Notting Hill Arts Club, where bands would share different musicians and collaborations often provided fresh material.
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 a live platform to artists including Laura Marling, The Vaccines’ Justin Young, Marcus Foster and Anna Calvi (who was promptly selected as one of the BBC’s Sounds Of 2011 nominees after Communion’s early support).
