Our annual free music programme, Sound Connections, has recently come to a close. The season launched on Wednesday, 23rd March with performances by Birmingham-based Kioko and London cult favourite Hackney Colliery Band.
Last year’s program featured some of 2015’s biggest emerging artists including Sheffield favourites Slow Club and psychedelic pop group Gengahr. This year, our music season is set to be an even bigger showcase of the brightest new stars, promising a truly commute-stopping experience for passers-by.
Not just a names-sake, Sound Connections also brings emerging young artists that have a connection to the station together under St Pancras’ striking Barlow Shed roof. Many of the performers will originate from a town or city located on one of the lines out of St Pancras International, from Sheffield in the North through to Brighton in the South and everything in-between.
Over the years, top performers ranging from Jamie Cullum to Laura Mvula and Sir Elton John have put on their own surprise performances at the station, with Elton even signing and donating a brand new Yamaha piano earlier in the year.
