We’d like to bring to your attention the Live Music Exchange project and their forthcoming event in Leeds on 4th and 5th May 2012 – for the full programme follow this link – http://livemusicexchange.org/
The Leeds Music History Project team have a lot of ideas of what we might do in 2012 to celebrate the rich history of music in Leeds. We are busy working away and will announce our plans in the spring…
Today (Saturday August 27th 2011) is the last day of the Where Were You? Leeds Music History Exhibition – we’ve had over 1000 people visit the exhibition, we’re really pleased that so many people are passionate about music in Leeds. We will continue to do stuff so keep an eye on our website and Facebook page (The Leeds Music History Society) – coming up are gigs from Pink Peg Slax and Jake Thackray Syndrome, and a compilation of Leeds music.
3pm Saturday 27th August 2011 in the Leeds Town Hall Crypt as part of the Leeds Music History Exhibition. See Gigs and Talks for more information.
Legendary music promoter John F Keenan will be giving a talk tomorrow, Tuesday 23rd August at 1pm in the Leeds Town Hall Crypt. We like to think of John as the Godfather of the Leeds music scene, he has been promoting in Leeds since 1977 including ‘F’ Club, Futurama Festivals, The Duchess, and currently at the New Roscoe.
Talk today at 1pm from Boff Whalley, original member of Chumbawamba, and Alaric Neville of Bridewell Taxis and producer for CUD, Chumbawamba and The Oysterband. A chance to hear stories of how these major Leeds bands got started.
The talk is in the exhibition space (downstairs in Leeds Town Hall) and is free entry but donations are appreciated.
