communion tour

A couple of weeks ago, I went to Tri Studios and saw the most amazing show. The Communion tour consists of three folk bands, Matthew & the Atlas, The David Mayfield Parade and Lauren Shera. Each band left me in awe and when they all got on the stage together it got better! Check them out, I am sure they are playing in a city near you.

Here is an excerpt I found online by's by Tyler Kane

"Communion — a live music promotion team from the U.K. that was formed by Mumford & Sons keyboardist Ben Lovett, producer Ian Grimble and Kevin Jones — will kick off its move into the U.S. with “Communion in the Redwoods.” The event is a three-day party in Big Sur, Calif. on Oct. 21 through 23. Communion helped artists like Laura Marling, Noah and the Whale and Marcus Foster establish their live shows.

“We founded Communion as a way for people to get together and play music without all the hassle of dealing with money-grabbing venue promoters,” Lovett said. “No matter what the venue size, they’ve always been amazingly intimate occasions. We’re incredibly excited to be launching Communion in America, where not only are there literally thousands of excellent musicians that we want to promote, but it’s also a country full of passionate music fans that we want to feel part of the Communion experience.  The tour will feature Matthew & the Atlas, The David Mayfield Parade and Lauren Shera.”
