Music Gigs Live to Your Living Room

Music from top quality artists, gig-quality sound and no queue at the bar became an online hit with audiences during the Covid-19 lockdowns.


Four years on and Live to Your Living Room is as popular as ever.


Launched by Cat McGill and fellow musician, producer and educator Pete Ord, Live to your Living Room delivers the very best of the folk, roots, and acoustic music scene live to your home.


Originally set-up as a means of providing professional musicians with a vital lifeline and viable income stream while venues were closed during lockdown, Live to Your Living Room turned out to be a lot more than that.


“I soon realised our gigs were appealing not just to people who could no longer go to gigs because of Covid but to people who could never go to gigs because of their disability,” said Cat, who was diagnosed with autism at the age of 37.


“People who had felt excluded from attending live gigs for so long because of insurmountable problems in getting there, just too ill or, as is the case with autistic people, completely out of their comfort zone in a social setting.”


This weekend’s live performances, available online, include multi-instrumentalists and songwriters Christina Alden and Alex Patterson, with support from The Lost Trades, who will be on stage tonight (April 19) at Downend Folk & Roots.

And on Sunday (April 21), you can catch Findlay Napier (pictured above) live from Live at Sam’s in Sheffield, the first date on a tour to promote his new solo album, Outsider, which celebrates outsiders in love and in life.
