Plato said we can judge a civilisation on the music it produces. The music of Great Britain tells us a lot about the history, culture and people of this island throughout the last six hundred years.
George will talk about the music and musical history of Britain ‘from Greensleeves to Please Please Me’ including the sacred and classical music composers of church and court as well as rural and urban folk traditions and the ‘British invasion’ of the 60s — and up to the present day.
A fun and informative tour of Britain’s rich musical tapestry’.
