Florence Welch talked new musical & played acoustic @ New Yorker Fest (pics, video)
The 2019 New Yorker Festival was this weekend, and among the many artists, writers, comedians, filmmakers and politicians who appeared for talks/performances was Florence Welch, who talked with The New Yorker‘s Jonathan Seabrook on Friday at N.Y. Society for Ethical Culture. It was a very candid interview where, among other things, she revealed she is currently working on a musical. Of course, you wouldn’t have Florence on the bill without letting her sing, and she sang “June,” “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful,” “Big God,” and “Dog Days Are Over” backed by her Florence + The Machine bandmates Rob Ackroyd on acoustic guitar and Tom Monger on harp. You can watch the whole performance below, check out pics in the gallery above, and stay tuned for more on Florence’s musical.
