Julien Baker reduces crowd members to tears with her stunning set at End of the Road

01 September 2018, 16:35 | Written by

There are perhaps few artists that encapsulate the traditional End of the Road vibe more than Julien Baker, a queer Tennessee folk singer with an unrivalled gift at evoking emotional catharsis, and a remarkable late-afternoon set on the Garden Stage showcased her talents to the fore.

Playing half the set solo, and half with just a violinist to accompany her, the purity of her voice noticeably reduced more than one audience member to tears, and reaffirmed her position as one of the most significant singer/songwriters of our generation.

End of the Road continues on Saturday 1 September with headline sets from Vampire Weekend and Oh Sees.
