Neneh Cherry collaborates with Krug

Champagne house Krug has collaborated with Swedish singer-songwriter Neneh Cherry for the fourth edition of its ‘Encounters’ concept, which will take place in September.

Neneh Cherry will curate the music programme at Krug’s fourth ‘Encounters’ event

Dubbed Rhythm & Ride, the event on 18 September will see guests transported to a Kentish woodland in Sittingbourne for an all-female immersive sound experienceDuring the event, the Buffalo Stance singer will curate a line-up of musical performances that champion female talent.

“A global icon and driving force in music of the last 30 years, Neneh Cherry perfectly embodies the excitement and charm of the Krug Encounters series,” Krug’s director, Olivier Krug, said.

Following on from the success of last year’s partnership with Evelyn’s Table, in addition to music and Champagne, attendees will feast on dishes created by Daniel Alt, head chef of Layo and Zoë Paskin’s The Barbary in Covent Garden.

Tickets are priced at £450 per person or £800 for two. Among the Champagnes on pour will be the recently released 167thedition of Krug Grande Cuvée and the 23rdedition of Krug Rosé.

The event runs from 12pm to 8pm on Wednesday 18 September. Last year’s event, Tracks on Tracks, was headed up by Jools Holland. Krug has long championed the notion of Champagne and music pairings that enhance the taste experience.

Each year the house invites a musician to a tasting of its Champagnes, who is then asked to create a playlist that reflects how the fizz made them feel and the aromas and flavours that they found in the wines.
