The Secret Life of Songs

Anthony Jackson, one of LCCM’s top masters students, has curated a live event for his award winning podcast series ‘The Secret Life of Songs’. Just as in the podcast, there will be in-depth musical analysis, biographical and historical context, and personal testimony, all weaved around live performance of some of the greatest songs from the golden age of pop:

· Show 1: Wed 6th July @ 7pm - I Feel Love - Donna Summer

· Show 2: Wed 13th Jul @ 7pm - 9 to 5 - Dolly Parton

· Show 3: Wed 20th July @ 7pm - Running Up That Hill - Kate Bush

Anthony will be joined on-stage by two dizzyingly accomplished multi-instrumentalists, producer Mark Cake and singer-songwriter LOBA, in recreating and reinterpreting the music. Topics covered will include the queer history of electronic music, the idea of work in country music, and the influence of post-war British psychology in the work of Kate Bush.
