On Sunday afternoons, Sundown Live on the roof sees an eclectic line up of live music and DJs, featuring some of the most exceptional emerging artists in the UK. Resident DJs Benji Buzz and Koopa Nut will follow performances, playing out a masterful pick and mix of musical styles and genres.

This duo make beautiful music: Jonathan Beckett’s soaring guitar and gorgeous vocals blossom with the wistful harmonies and elegant cello accompaniment by Sarah Thomson.

Reconnecting after time concentrating on solo projects, the pair explore Beckett’s masterful, and very British, songwriting. Lyrically veering between the ethereal and the blunt depiction of everyday life, Beckett has justly been described by his peers as an “eccentric songwriter, comparable to the darker side of Jarvis Cocker”.

The Beautiful Word are an experimental folk pop/ psychedelic folk five-piece, delivering their own particular brand of music delightfully twisted with a playful edge.

“The vocal interplay of Emily Bryant and Megan Clifton give this Brighton-based quintet a mellow soulful feel hinting at old school folk through The Sundays to The Unthanks. With some neat slide guitar and soft rhythms, The Beautiful Word hand-weave some gorgeous tunes.”
