For September’s Long Afternoon, the Longplayer Trust is delighted to welcome internationally acclaimed musician Laura Cannell to the Lighthouse.

Laura Cannell’s new solo release, Bow & Creak, was inspired by Longplayer. It is released on 8th September 2023 by Brawl Records.

“I was inspired by the landscape of the Longplayer score, its beautiful, never ending image of circles and shapes, combined with the waterscape and surroundings of the lighthouse of where is is housed; it was too hard to resist interpreting it into my own musical language.”

Please join us at the lighthouse, Trinity Buoy Wharf, for a Long Afternoon in the company of Longplayer, Sunday 24th September, 1pm to 5pm

Laura Cannell will perform at 3pm.
