The LAGC Return live to Cheese & Grain, Frome, on Thurs Dec 9th. A truly uplifting & outstanding pre-Xmas event for the whole family, this event is 14+ accompanied by an adult.
Over thirty years after its release, the ‘LAGC, perform Paul Simon’s iconic ‘Graceland’ album.
This 17 strong ensemble will be live, delivering the Graceland album from start to finish. After coming across a bootleg cassette of South African township music in the early 80s, Paul Simon was totally smitten by the infectious & irresistible rhythms. He travelled to Johannesburg, spending two weeks there, recording with the absolute cream of South African musicians.
That epic session, went on to form the basis of Simon’s most commercially successful album ever – Graceland. The record became a true global phenomenon, blowing up worldwide & spawning the hit singles, ‘Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes’, ‘The Boy in the Bubble’ & it’s biggest smash – ‘You Can Call Me Al.’
The London African Gospel Choir are a collective of African singers, musicians & dancers. They have quite literally performed with everyone who’s anyone. The total richness & harmony of the Choir’s rhythmic, uplifting, evocative & empowering voices, create an overwhelming musical event. Ask anyone lucky enough to have experienced this astonishing show last time they were here & believe what you hear…
‘To compare this show to anything else – would be like trying to measure love, or joy, with a ruler.’
