Gilles Peterson joins Classic Album Sundays founder Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy for a one-off Zoom event discussing the overwhelming impact of music during isolation.
Like the rest of us, the DJ /Radio Host / Label Owner has been locked up at home but luckily for him, he is surround by thousands of records! Like many record collectors, Gilles has been digging up old favourites and discovering hidden gems whilst in lockdown.
In this special event, he and Colleen will discuss the albums that have been giving him solace, comfort and inspiration, so expect to be turned on to some great new music. We will also ‘open up the floor’ to questions from our attendees at the end of the session.
We have a suggested donation of £10 to support Classic Album Sundays at this difficult time. However, if you are unable to financially support, we totally understand. Just do what you can and what you feel comfortable doing. We still love ya!
Attendees will receive the Zoom link one hour before the event starts. Doors open at 7:45.
Time and Date: Tuesday 26th May 8pm – 9:30pm
