Music Cube

  • Free

What’s the most annoying thing about the London gig circuit? Is it people taking photos on their phones? Expensive tickets? Overpriced drinks? Nope: according to the people behind an unusual new gig series, it’s definitely those big speakers on either side of the stage. Mega-mall Westfield has found a way to solve that problem: put the singer in a soundproof, transparent cube, and give everyone a pair of headphones so they can hear him. It’s basically like a silent disco

Steve Tilston

  • Critics choice

His daughter Martha Tilston may be better known to younger folk fans these days, but this good humoured songwriter and innovative guitarist has penned several folk semi-classics – 'The Slip Jigs & Reels', 'Naked Highwayman' and 'Here's to Tom Paine' have all been covered by Fairport Convention – and proved he's still on top of his game by scooping the 2012 BBC Folk Award for Best Original Song with the title track from his last (2011) album 'The Reckoning'.

Though her blues chops are strong, Crow's songs are also heavily influenced by country music, which you can hear in pretty much all of her hits from across the years. These include the gravelly chart-rock of 'If It Makes You Happy', the shuffling earworm chorus of 'Everyday Is a

Deep Purple

Minus legendary geetar misanthrope Ritchie Blackmore, the '70s rock dinosaurs still boast a line-up including Messrs Gillan, Paice and Glover. They will no doubt treat the Jeremy Clarkson massive to such classics as 'Highway Star', 'Fireball' and their riffmongous perennial 'Smoke On The Water' – pretty much the national anthem of UK trad rock.
