live stuff: overture weekend at southbank centre, 10/7/07

Some good free music to mark the re-opening of the Royal Festival Hall after a £91 million renovation project: some Gospel choirs, singing from the roof of the Queen Elizabeth Hall (the best of which were the Croydon Seventh-Day Adventist Choir--fantastic), Indigo Moss, purveyors of fine Anglo-Americana and the brilliant folk "supergroup" Bellowhead.
