Inspired by the British Library’s new Beyond the Bassline exhibition, the Mitchell Library will host a free panel display to help tell a national story about Black music in Britain through the Living Knowledge Network.

The panel display at the Mitchell Library documents 500 years of Black music in Britain and explores the people, places and genres that have formed a British soundtrack. It highlights music as a form of entertainment and vehicle for community, as well as a source of liberation, protest and education, and spotlights clubs, carnivals and community hubs from across the country that have cultivated creative expression and inspired a number of Black British music genres.

Augmented by Mitchell Library’s own collection, regional connections and Glasgow’s local music scene, the Beyond the Bassline display and events programme helps to tell a national story about Black music in Britain.

As part of this events programme, we are delighted to welcome Chief Chebe an African author, storyteller, musician, laughter coach, a larger-than-life character, and much more!

Using the healing tradition of African Storytelling, peppered with the infectious beat of the Djembe drum and the mesmerizing Jangda or Balafon, Chief Chebe (also known as Soulay Puliman or Frank McChebe), will bring the Mitchel Library to life on the 20th of July with his infectious energy burster, interactive storytelling.

Workshop attendants would be able to join in with the fun and play some djembe drums and other interactive instruments during the workshop…. Bring the family along for a new way to enjoy Chief Chebe in action, lose yourselves in the stories and music, and create some joyous and lasting memories for the whole family to treasure.

Fun Intergenerational Family event- suitable for children aged 6+

Choose from either: a £3 family ticket (max 2 persons- 1 adult & 1 child) or a £5 family ticket (max 4 persons- 1 adult and 3 children or 2 adults and 2 children)
