Many of you will be aware of Communion, we’ve followed this evolving community as it has spread from it’s home in London’s Notting Hill to Bristol, Leeds, Brighton, Belfast, Dublin and even Sydney Australia! It now has its own record label and is continuing to champion artists through its growing community of followers of whom, we are pleased to be one! The following video was made by our good friends: Baby Sweet Sessions. If you have never been to a Communion night, then you should, they are magical and are all about community!
Communion was born in the summer of 2006 at Notting Hill Arts Club. Founded by Ben Lovett (Mumford and Sons), Kevin Jones (Cherbourg) and producer Ian Grimble, it grew into a community of musicians, industry and fans alike, and provided a platform for the newest bands on London’s circuit. The night has seen the likes of Noah and the Whale, Laura Marling, Mumford and Sons, JJ Pistolet and Peggy Sue grace the stage and has become closely associated with the nu-folk movement in the capital. As well as this, it helped spawn the careers of artists such as Esser, The Holloways and Example, in keeping with the eclectic ethos that Communion has come to stand for.
The footage from this brief documentary comes from the November 2010 edition of Communion and the full length performances of the artists featured and others will follow shortly.
