This Week In Live-Streams (18/05/20)


As lockdown continues, so do live-streamed gigs. This week offers a range of talents, including a couple of festivals, so be sure to tune in when you can!

Who? Gabriela Montero
Royal Albert Home page
When? Tuesday 19th, 7.30pm (BST)
Why? As part of the Royal Albert Home series that has been going on since lockdown started, Gabriela Montero will showcase her unique piano talents this week. She’s particularly well-known for her complex improvisations in performances, turning Classical or famous pieces into something entirely different and unqiue. This live-stream is one for fans of piano, or for anyone who wishes to witness the incredible musicianship of an artist they may not have heard of.

Artists such as Young the Giant, Aloe Blacc, Matt Berninger of The National and Frank Turner will be performing, alongside many others.

Who? Scouting for Girls
Royal Albert Home page
When? Thursday 21st, 8.15pm (BST)
Why? Also part of the Royal Albert Home series, this band are a classic in British culture.

The band headlined the Royal Albert Hall in 2013, so this live-stream will hopefully allow us to turn back time to when we were able to attend live gigs.
