Parkinson: Our Kind of Music
Take a journey through Sir Michael Parkinson’s musical DNA in words, pictures and performance in this new live show!
About Parkinson: Our Kind of Music
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Alongside his interviewing and writing Sir Michael Parkinson has spent much of his career promoting the appreciation of the music of the Great American Songbook and encouraging those of the new generation who are fighting to keep that flame alive. In the process, he has developed an encyclopaedic knowledge of that genre as well as interviewing some of the greats and finding time to talent spot the likes of Michael Bublé, Diana Krall and Jamie Cullum. But he is much more than a jazzer. His taste in music takes in everything from Razorlight to Paul Simon, The Beatles to Oasis with the consequence that Sir Michael’s seal of approval came to mean a great deal with every record label in the country wanting to bottle his A&R talent.
This passion and love of music in all its forms is celebrated in a new live show. In conversation with his son Mike, using classic clips from the extensive Parkinson archive and featuring live performances by the multi-talented Joe Stilgoe we take a fascinating and entertaining journey to the musical heart of Sir Michael Parkinson via Barnsley, sixties Manchester, Wood Lane and Broadcasting House.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Parkinson: Our Kind of Music are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
