Our speaker Rob Young will talk about the background to his book, Electric Eden, a comprehensive study of Britain’s folk music.
Rob Young will investigate how the idea of folk has been handed down and transformed by successive generations – song collectors, composers, Marxist revivalists, folk-rockers, psychedelic voyagers, free festival goers, experimental pop stars and electronic innovators.
Wednesday February 23rd, 7.30pm
