LIVE: Sofar Sounds at Worcester College Chapel (18/3/15)

A few days ago I went to this month’s Oxford Sofar Sounds, events that I’ve been photographing recently. It was hosted at Worcester College Chapel, with Tom Lowman, Gill Sandell, CoCo and the Butterfields and Emily Barker performing. It was once more a superb evening of live music, if a little less intimate than normal - but a beautiful venue regardless. You can find some of my photos from the evening in the second half of the album on SS Oxford’s Facebook here.

The highlight of the evening for me was folk hip-hop band CoCo and the Butterfields. Having heard them practicing outside before the show I was looking forward to their set, and when they rocked up on stage with violin, guitar, double bass, banjo, saxophone and a beatboxer.. my high hopes were ready to be realised. They played a really fun set and the audience seemed to enjoy it, particularly their opening track, a cover of Gym Class Heroes’ Cupid’s Chokehold. They’re touring across the UK in April/May, dates here, I implore you to take a listen!
