Wolf Alice Received The Mercury Award!

Posted By Nick J.

The mercury award for the best album was received by the British alternative rock group Wolf Alice for its second studio product Visions of a Life. The competition won strong competition, and was won by both Arctic Monkeys and Noel Gallagher and Lily Allen.

Ellie Rowsell, the 26-year-old singer of the four-member group from North London, who was nominated for the debut album My for the mercury award, said: “It’s huge to me that I can take the prize with my three best friends”.

Among the past recipients of the mercury awards are among other Primal Scream, Franz Ferdinand and The XX, and PJ Harvey musician and rapper Skept. For the first time in six years, the mercury prize was won by a rock band.

 

 

After receiving the award, Wolf Alice played a track from the winning Do not Delete the Kisses album. The award ceremony in London was also marked by appearances by Florence + The Machine, Sons of Kemet, Lily Allen and Nadine Shah.

According to the BBC, the latter stole attention with his emotional performance of the Out The Way song from the Holiday Destination album, which was also nominated, with a singer of Pakistani and Norwegian roots giving his experience immigrants and the UK’s attitude towards refugees.

Guitars Used On Our Festival

Posted By Nick J.

The music, the fun, the opera, the Cambridge music festival, is the epitome of the art – especially for guitarists. Music glitters across the weekend. Crazy strumming, memorable nostalgic performances, bands that just make you want to jump off your feet with their energy, and the guitars – the best guitars that the world can offer, in the best hands that guitars can get into.

Very few people recognize the brands of guitars used at the festival. In fact, some are just ignorant about them, apart from the kind of music they give that is. But we can’t ignore them, can we? In the performances, the following guitars were used.

The list is not exhaustive, however:

1. LX Martins

Ed Sheeran has become a mark of excellence in English singing, and whenever you see Ed, you have to think of this acoustic guitar. His touch on the guitar is synonymous with deep sultry lyrics, a little bass, and the vocals that just force you to sing along.

The Dreadnaught is primarily a travel guitar. Its price is relatively high, and the sound it produces is of the top quality you can find.

For amateur guitarists, this guitar is just precious. It is light, it is good, and it is value for every cent of the money spent on it

 

 

 

 

In fact, if you really want to learn more about guitars, I suggest reading the article about the most affordable acoustic guitars on the market. Otherwise, just continue reading, as we cover another guitar used on Cambridge Music Festival.

 

2. Epiphone Les Paul Standard

The bands that provide the musical journey at the Cambridge Musical Festival have been hailed as magical electric guitarists. The sound of the strumming pervades the scene like flowers in bloom, each song they belt out a compulsion to their audience to stand up and dance. And right in the middle of all this joy, is this guitar, the Epiphone Les Paul Standard.

World over, Epiphone guitars are revered, for the quality, the ease of use, the seamless designs, and the sound. At the Cambridge festival, only the best of instruments are used, and this is certainly the best there can be found. The projection from this guitar is like a boom, you can feel the shake of every string on the systems, and the music is just the creme de la crème of music. It gets you dancing when it falls into the amiable welcoming hands of an expert guitarist as any of the band members gracing the Cambridge stage.

It needs not be said that guitars are at the heart of every Cambridge musical experience. They are the heartbeats of the music. Sometimes, like this, we need to stop and wonder. What was that guitar again? Probably I should get it for myself!
