MAIA SHARPE WITH JOHN AT THE SONGWRITING WITH SOLDIERS RETREAT 2017
We’ve finished our documentary for Radio 4 about Middle 8s and we’re very pleased with it.
Unfortunately we couldn’t include everything, so I thought I’d share this gem from the cutting room floor. Neil Cowley, who plays piano on Adele’s monster album as well as fronting his own jazz trio, tells us a jolly story about the notoriously lazy Mozart and how his cleaner used to get him up in the morning.
Building Bridges – The Art of the Middle 8 is scheduled for tx on Saturday April 27th at 1030 am.
Midge Ure presents and the show includes contributions from Boo Hewerdine (who invents a new Middle 8 for a Bee Gees song which doesn’t have one), Justin Currie who unravels Always The Last To Know, musicologist Helen Caddick and journalist David Hepworth.
