We’re delighted to be hosting the launch event for Dave Randall‘s Sound System: The Political Power of Music here at Chalkwell Hall. Dave is a world-renowned guitarist and has played for Faithless, Dido, Sinead O’Connor and many others.
“Musicians have often wanted to change the world. From underground innovators to pop icons, many have believed in the political power of music. Rulers recognise it too. Music has been used to challenge the social and political order – and to prop up the status quo. Sound System is the story of one musician’s journey to discover what makes music so powerful.”
Dave Randall will give an illustrated talk and sign copies of Sound System. It is a book of raves, riots and revolution and poses the question: how can we make music serve the interests of the many, rather than the few?
