LWFF21 Opening Night Musician Announcement!
This year, for the first time, we're bringing young musicians into the mix to help us ring in our Opening Night. Like with our championing of film and graphic design, we want to use Little Wing as a platform to create space for emerging artists and do what we can to create more accessible opportunities into the creative industries.
For our Opening Night on Tuesday September 21st, we are so delighted to announce that the incredible Solana and Gabriel will play live at Everyman Chelsea following the screening. It will be the chance for reconnection, networking and celebration of the resilience and achievements of our filmmakers - all over a drink from the bar, and some amazing live music!
Solana and Gabriel are a teenage brother and sister duo from London (17 and 19). They are passionate musicians, singers and songwriters, who both studied music at the Brit School.
They're frequent local festival performers and were scouted for Little Wing when spotted busking at the Walthamstow Sunday Social Markets. In the same spot, they were spotted and invited on to BBC London to do a session on the David and Carrie Grant Christmas Show.
Their music is inspired by many different genres and they've recorded with Vula, Mista Jam, Laura White and Cherise. Both are working on their solo EPs, due for release next year.
