'Coveted' doesn't begin to describe tickets to Mencap's Little Noise Sessions. Guitarist Magazine and MusicRadar have teamed up with Larrivée Guitars and UK distributor Sound Technology Ltd, to bring you a fantastic prize of a pair of VIP tickets to the extraordinary Little Noise Sessions in London this month.
Little Noise Sessions is a series of acoustic concerts held annually in London. Respected radio and TV presenter Jo Whiley curates the event, and proceeds go to the charity, Mencap. First held at the beautiful Union Chapel in London's Islington, a Little Noise Session gig typically delivers not only established headline acts, but also the bands of the moment and the stars of tomorrow - back in 2006, for example, Jamie T and Bat For Lashes appeared supporting Guillemots and Amy Winehouse respectively, whereas the following year saw Katy Perry appearing before James Morrison's closing slot.
Elbow were among the artists who played at the Little Noise Sessions last year
The event also has a habit of delivering special guests - who remain unannounced until stepping on stage - which in past years have included Bono, The Edge, and The Killers. This year also looks set to enjoy its share of surprise guests, too.
