Closing Party #BHM17
October 27, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Save for Later
Since the earliest days of popular music, Black music has exerted a disproportionate influence on white young people. UK youth cultures throughout the 20th Century have been defined by their interest, sometimes bordering on the obsessive, in Black music. From the blues and jazz boom of the 1950s that produced the Rolling Stones and scores of other hitmakers, to the Northern soul scene that sprang up in the late 60s and early 70s, and the ska and reggae that migrants from the West Indies introduced to their UK peers at dances and youth clubs, Black music has provided the soundtrack to UK social history.
The Black History Month 2017 closing party celebrates this with top Scottish soul, rhythm and blues and reggae DJs, Claire Hyslop, Felonious Munk, Thistle Stew and Jock O’Connor.
