Barry White was one of the greatest singer-songwriters of all time and his back catalogue continues to be adored across the globe.
The Love Unlimited Synth Orchestra pays homage to his extraordinary songs with a live show conducted by Charles Hazlewood, featuring a spectacular line-up of guest artists including Gruff Rhys, Nadine Shah, Larry Heard, Ibibio Sound Machine’s Eno Williams, YolanDa Brown, Adrian Utley (Portishead) and Clive Deamer (Radiohead).
This stellar line-up of musical friends will perform alongside musicians from The British Paraorchestra, Army of Generals and a bank of synth players, in celebration of the sultry sounds of a soul and funk icon.
Barry White was one of the most successful singer-songwriters of all time, yet he never appeared at Glastonbury before his untimely death in 2003. The Love Unlimited Synth Orchestra aims to reinstate White’s overlooked genius as a composer with a party-starting premiere on Saturday 29th June, 3.15pm on The Park Stage, Glastonbury Festival 2019, Pilton.
