Keaton Henson's First-Ever Headline Show (With a Twist) Set for Sunday, Dec. 18

Keaton Henson, one of the most compelling up-an-coming singer-songwriters to emerge in recent times, has announced the details for his first ever headline show (with a twist). Keaton will release an innovative series of online live music experiences, which may be as close to seeing him perform as the majority of us will have for quite some time. Following an incapacitating bout with stage fright last year, Keaton made the decision to connect with his audience on his own terms, rather than undertake the traditionally thought of approach to live performances. Our first taste of the results will be "Forts", the first of the series of online music experiences that will give us a clue as to what's to come for Keaton.
"Forts" is neither a streamed session, a music video, nor a traditional live gig…though it does contain elements of all these things. It is Keaton's own twist on the shared gigging experience, and is designed to retain the intimacy of listening to a record whilst capturing the excitement of a live performance. To experience "Forts," visitors should tune to Keaton's website Sunday Dec. 18 at 8 PM GMT. Though details are scarce, we know Henson will play a 20-minute set from inside a childlike fort, decorated with items dear to him.
There is something to be said about performing from the comfort of your own home!
