London Finalists at the London Coffee Festival 2018


The Coffee Music Project London finalists performed alongside CMP alumni Bandits on the Run and Abrielle Schaff and New York Coffee Festival 2017 singer/songwriter Garett Gardner this past weekend at the London Coffee Festival 2018. Drawing the coffee lover crowd between 10 am and 1 pm on Saturday and Sunday, the Coffee Music Project artists proved a highlight of the festivals music line-up.

Our New York Coffee Music Project 2017 runner-up Abrielle Schaff performed her New York song (Coffee Music Project New York 2017 theme) New York Makes Me Cry, making us all reminisce about New York City.

Bandits on the Run (Coffee Music Project New York 2017 winners) took to the stage each day at 12:30 pm, with a sea of caffeinated guests crowding to watch the trio perform. The Bandits set list included their unforgettable originals Paris and Love on the Underground, as well as a hilariously well-received cover of Come on Eileen.

The finalists performed on the main stage in front of thousands of Festival-goers, preparing their routines for the finals on Wednesday 18 April. Power-house performers Brunette and Georgia Meek drew the crowd’s eyes, whilst crystal vocals from Selin and Bobbie Harvey filled the Truman Brewery’s main hall.

Fugitive Orchestra and Kingsgate provided catchy hooks, and the talented instrumentalist/vocalists Daisy Chute, Hollie Rogers, Mairead Furlong and James Riley performed their originals memorably.

It will be interesting to see who takes the winning title at The Coffee Music Project London 2018 finals, see below for more information.
