In line with the array of memorial events marking the centenary of World War I, the Barbican Centre in London this week announced a very special evening of music inspired by the songs, poems, and stories from the time. Featuring performances from Mercury-nominated folksters Sam Lee and members of The Unthanks, the night promises to be both moving and inspirational with visuals provided by innovative video designer Matthew J Watkins of Gorrilaz fame.

More information about the event – which will take place on 18th September at the Barbican – can be found here.
