Old York Road Unplugged to celebrate acoustic music
A street party this month features musicians celebrating the joy of acoustic music.

There will be a variety of solo artists and groups performing popular acoustic genres, ranging from folk and swing to jazz and pop.
Visitors can also expect to hear more unusual unplugged styles, like hip-hop and ska.
Talented musicians from Wandsworth feature on the line-up, as well as artists who have travelled from further afield.
Expect to see folk-soul female four-piece The May Birds, EvanJack and hip-hop pop vocalist, Jessica Sweetman.
Guests are also being treated to a performance from Sashi and the Wild Beans, an 11-strong ska, soul and swing group hailing from Brixton.
Restaurants, cafés and bars in the street are joining forces to serve food, drink and street food.
