Greenwich Summer Sessions 2011 to feature The Pogues, Squeeze, Mark Ronson, The Divine Comedy (solo), Status Quo and more
While Somerset House is boasting The Summer Series 2011, Greenwich will claim an equally tasty piece of entertainment as the Greenwich Summer Sessions 2011 are to take place in the lovely surroundings of the Old Royal Naval College, on the same month (26th-31st July).
Playing us in on the 26th is Neil Hannon of The Divine Comedy, whose tenth album in a twenty-one-year-long career, 'Bang Goes the Knighthood' was released in May last year, as well as Swedish indie folkster, José González, who in addition to his savvy finger-picking has proved over the years his knack for a good cover, at times outdoing the originals.
Multitasking prodigy, Mark Ronson & the Business Intl will follow on the 27th and play us some of his 'Record Collection', released last September. Cherished veterans, Status Quo, whose box set of sessions, live concerts and TV appearances, 'Live at the BBC' has been available in record stores since October, will take charge of Thursday 28th's entertainment with support from blues/ rock band, Nine Below Zero. Squeeze plus support take to the stage the following night.
Shane MacGowan and his collective, The Pogues, will belt their Celtic-punk out on the Saturday (support act TBA). Local boy and Squeeze singer/ songwriter Chris Difford will close this year's Summer Sessions on Sunday 31st July where he will curate 'Songs in the Key of London', with special guests to be announced.
Tickets are on sale now and range from £25 to £35 for standing tickets, £42.50 - £50 for seats (prices + fees).
