“We always wanted to document what was happening on the London folk scene and champion newer artists alongside more established ones,” explained Jones of the night and the spin-off album. “What’s fascinating is you can hear the influence of artists such as Laura Marling, Noah And The Whale and Mumford and Sons filtering down into the newer artists and also cross referencing each other along the way.
“There really is a new music movement happening in London and further afield, and having seen so many of these acts play Communion over the years it’s an honour to be responsible for putting some of the pieces of the puzzle together.”
