Gigs in the courtyard at London's Somerset House return next month (7-17 July) with a varied billed of artist. To lead you through this year's Summer Series at Somerset House with American Express, Harry Towe from the venue has made Q a playlist featuring this year's nightly headliners.
Hiatus Kaiyote – Nakamarra (ft Q-Tip) (7 July) "Combining an array of genres from soul, funk and modern jazz, we’re very excited to have Grammy nominated Hiatus Kaiyote opening this year’s series."
Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott – Perfect 10 (8 July) "A classic track amongst many, guaranteed to have the audience singing along word for word."
Benjamin Clementine – Cornerstone (9 July) "A master of his craft, the Mercury Prize winner's live shows are a spectacle of pure emotion and this track epitomises that. Expect goosebumps throughout."
Laura Mvula – Green Garden (10 July) "A household name partly do to the success of this track, we’re looking forward to Laura performing her hugely anticipated new material to everyone at this year’s series."
Everything Everything – Distant Past (11 July) "A track which feels written for festival season, a great British band in their element."
James Morrison – Broken Strings (12 July) "An artist doing what he does best, great pop songs defined by his now unmistakeable husk of a vocal."
Courtney Barnett – Pedestrian At Best (13 July) "A complete poet of the observational lyric, Courtney Barnett delivers fuzzy guitars and an unarguable charm on stage."
Caravan Palace – Lone Digger (14 July) "A truly unique Parisian act, Caravan Palace are pioneers of their electro-swing genre. The seven-strong band’s live shows are unlike anything else and not to be missed. Get the dancing shoes out for this one."
Jack Savoretti – Home (15 July) "Held together with his warm, gravelly signature vocal, Jack produces songs exploring delicate, flamenco tones to that of huge singalong songs such as this."
St Germain – Rose Rouge (16 July) "Over 20 years on from the release of his debut record, we are proud to have legendary French producer Ludovic Navarre take to the Somerset House courtyard. This track is up there with the best."
UNKLE:REDUX – Lonely Soul (17 July) "A highlight in a back catalogue of hits, we are delighted to have UNKLE back to Somerset House to close this year’s series with their full audio visual show."
