Tyburns at the Mercury Awards!

Posted on Tuesday 06.09.2011

On the 6th September, we had the exciting opportunity to play in the magnificent Great Room of Grosvenor House as part of the Barclaycard Mercury Music Prize. After initially being approached by Kayak Music who represent Ghostpoet (one of this year's nominees for the award) we began an exciting collaboration with the other three musicians. It was unlike anything we have ever done before- you might think that rap and strings don't mix but in fact the end result was an unusual and effective. We performed live in front of 1000 prestigious guests and the show (presented by the fabulous Jools Holland) was subsequently shown on various BBC channels- the competition was stiff with the likes of Elbow, Katy B and Adele also up for the Prize. In the end however, PJ Harvey was named as the winner, 10 years after she originally won the prize! It really was an excellent evening we will never forget!
