Music company Communion has teamed up with the website LIVENow to launch a new weekly streamed show that will feature live performances from and interviews with two artists, all recorded at Lafayette.

That, of course, is the new London venue launched earlier this year by Mumford & Sons member and Communion co-founder Ben Lovett, which – like most grassroots venues – is currently closed due to lockdown restrictions.

Mazin Tappuni, who will host the weekly ‘Communion Presents’ stream, says: “Lafayette is London’s best new venue, and whilst you can’t come and see that for yourself yet, we hope these online shows offer up the next best opportunity to see what makes it so special”.

As well as allowing people to see Lovett’s new venue while it’s closed, Communion hopes that the weekly stream will also help artists who have been negatively impacted by COVID.

Tappuni adds: “Providing a stage for new music has always been at the heart of what we do at Communion. During this disaster of a year, we wanted to find a way to continue supporting exciting new artists and creating a live streaming series seemed the right way to do it”.

Artists set to appear on ‘Community Presents’ are as follows…

29 Nov: Olivia Dean & Louis Dunford
6 Dec: Martha Gunn & Richard Fairlie
13 Dec: APRE & Mysie
20 Dec: Delilah Montagu & Jordan Mackampa
27 Dec: Chatreuse & Zola Courtney
