Free Friday lunchtime concerts at the Royal Festival Hall

Great news! On Fridays until March, the Royal Festival Hall will be running weekly free concerts at lunchtime, in case you feel like getting out of the office and watching some music.

The Friday Lunch series showcases a range of musical styles, with an focus on small-scale classical and contemporary music, and today's concert features Skip 'Little Axe' McDonald. Born in Ohio in 1949, 'Little Axe' is an American blues musician, who is today playing a special acoustic duo set in advance of his new Realworld album release.

In other weeks you can catch a diverse range of acts, often featuring students from music colleges or in association with Southbank Centre's Resident Orchestras. The concerts also feature jazz, folk, and non-Western music. So take some time out and enjoy some great music in interesting surroundings.

***Update - your author popped along today and, though he had to sit behind the stage, and his friend kept wanting to talk about how her mum wouldn't let her have a key to her home even though she is 26, it was very pleasant. Little Axe is definitely worth seeing***
