This Prom will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 at 19:30 BST and then on BBC Four at 20:00 BST & on BBC Radio 6 Music on 21 September.

Please note that it will not be possible to have an audience at the Royal Albert Hall for this concert.

Featuring brand-new string arrangements performed by the London-based 12 Ensemble – whose collaborators include The National and Max Richter – this Prom journeys through the back catalogue of singer-songwriter Laura Marling, whose recent live performance the Guardian described as ‘like being dosed with a vitamin I had been leaving out of my diet’.

The BRIT Award winner and four-time Mercury Prize nominee takes the Royal Albert Hall stage for a one-off acoustic retrospective. Songs from her latest album including Fortune and the album’s title-track, Song for Our Daughter, sit alongside those from earlier albums including Alas, I Cannot Swim – released when Marling was just 18.
