Keeping Safe and Happy
Your peace of mind and enjoyment of the event means everything to us and we will be following ‘Covid-19 secure’ government guidance to ensure social distancing measures and other conditions are strictly in place to create as safe an environment as possible for the audience, artists and workers.
There will be designated group seating pods on the lawn, single deckchair seating, one-way system, professionally-run bar and food areas, hand sanitiser stands, monitored toilet facilities and a team of trained marshalls on hand to support the event. Whilst the wearing of masks in an outdoor space is not mandatory, we advise that you do whatever makes you feel the most comfortable in such a setting.
Alex will be joined by his full band as they play a live set from White Noise Studios this Saturday 4th July. Available as a live stream via Youtube and Facebook from 9pm UK time. All proceeds from donations will go directly to Weston Hospicecare. Full info and link to the event can be found here: https://www.westonhospicecare.org.uk/event/thebigvirtualwestonfest/
Alex will release his new single ‘Hurricane’ tomorrow (Friday 27th March 2020) on A Recordings.
“The new version of Hurricane is how I actually heard the song when I first wrote it. I had this upbeat, 12-string Byrds/Big Star sound in my head. It wasn’t until I slowed it down and lowered the key at a gig, almost by accident, that I decided to record that version on my last album. I wanted this big Clarence Clemons/Bobby Keys-style tenor sax solo during the instrumental. The new reworked version completely changes the feel of the whole song.”
Available digitally worldwide on all major download & streaming platforms.
