Society of Sound: Stornoway

The December release on Bowers and Wilkins Society of Sound revisits a special moment in time; the final ever gig by Oxford band Stornoway.

After more than ten years playing together the band were ready for new horizons and their Spring 2017 tour proved to be the perfect send off. The Farewell Show: Live at the New Theatre, Oxford captures the last night of the tour and was recorded by the Real World Studios team.

"We have achieved far more as a band than we ever dared to dream back as students in a drafty east Oxford garage and we are immensely proud of the music we have created together."

The Farewell Show: Live at the New Theatre, Oxford is available to download now on Society of Sound.
