A last minute booking to shoot a surprise appearance of Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant and his new band supporting Alice Phoebe Lou at The Hifi Club, Leeds. Amazing sets from both groups and a packed venue! So privileged to have had a chance to see such an iconic musician in person.
“The Encontro Street Band Festival a spectacular weekend-long celebration of street band music, the Encontro Festival brings a plethora of UK and international bands to the streets of Glasgow, staging captivating outdoor performances in and around the Merchant City.
Featuring all flavours of street drumming, carnival brass, marching band, New Orleans jazz, Afro-Brazilian percussion, straight up samba and more – plus extravagant costumes, energetic dancers, artistic collaborations and massed band performances – the festival brings the spirit of hot dusty streets at carnival time right into the heart of Glasgow!”
