Longy & The Gospel Trash (400th gig)
Appearing out of nowhere at the end of 2013, anonymous busker LONGY has whipped up a frenzy of rumour, intrigue and praise in equal measure. From being awarded Demo of the Year (XFM London) for his self released debut EP, to filling Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen on a Tuesday night during the tube strike and even convincing the cream of the British press that he’s headlining Glastonbury, all without putting a single song online, LONGY knows how to get people talking.
With his army of fans growing and wild rumours circling in the British press as to LONGY’s real identity, 2014 has been an explosive year. Summer saw him perform a string of blistering festival performances, including Secret Garden Party and a mainstage performance at Village Green Festival, where LONGY brought on a marching drum band and a 25piece gospel choir.
