Nottingham: Billy Bragg ‘Roots, Radicals and Rockers': Book Q&A / Signing

June 04, 2017 at Rough Trade Nottingham in Nottingham.

tracking.php?code=LPAU05g4LRJ5shZidKVj1R

Billy Bragg WILL BE IN-STORE AT Rough Trade Nottingham FOR A SPECIAL Q&A AND SIGNING, DISCUSSING HIS FORTHCOMING Faber & Faber PUBLISHED BOOK, ‘ROOTS, RADICALS AND ROCKERS: HOW SKIFFLE CHANGED THE WORLD’.

SUNDAY 4TH JUNE

3PM START // 5PM FINISH // WRISTBAND ENTRY

ONE BOOK PRE-ORDER = X2 WRISTBANDS FOR ENTRY TO THIS WRISTBAND ONLY EVENT.

Against a backdrop of Cold War politics, rock and roll riots and a newly assertive generation of working-class youth, the songwriter and political activist Billy Bragg charts the history, impact and legacy of skiffle – Britain’s first indigenous pop movement.

Roots, Radicals & Rockers: How Skiffle Changed the World is the first book to explore this phenomenon in depth – a meticulously researched and joyous account that explains how skiffle sparked a revolution that shaped pop music as we have come to know it.

It’s a story of jazz pilgrims and blues blowers, Teddy Boys and beatnik girls, coffeebar bohemians and refugees from the McCarthyite witch-hunts. Billy traces how the guitar came to the forefront of music in the UK and led directly to the British Invasion of the US charts in the 1960s.

Emerging from the trad-jazz clubs of the early ’50s, skiffle was adopted by kids who growing up during the dreary, post-war rationing years. These were Britain’s first teenagers, looking for a music of their own in a pop culture dominated by crooners and mediated by a stuffy BBC. Lonnie Donegan hit the charts in 1956 with a version of ‘Rock Island Line’ and soon sales of guitars rocketed from 5,000 to 250,000 a year.

Like punk rock that would flourish two decades later, skiffle was a do-it-yourself music. All you needed was the ability to play three chords on a cheap guitar and you could form a group, with mates playing tea-chest bass and washboard as a rhythm section.

Billy Bragg is a singer-songwriter and activist inspired by the Clash and pollicised by the 1984 miner’s strike. He has released 13 studio albums, authored books on Englishness and lyric writing and is a regular contributor to the national debate as a tv and radio commentator and newspaper columnist.

Nottingham: Can Samba & City Arts Flying Free Troupe 2017

May 28, 2017 at City Arts – Nottingham in Nottingham.

tracking.php?code=4Mx8Qwy4A7URyFofIY1bzJ

***ANNOUCEMENT***

For those of you that don’t know Can Samba have received a second Grants for the Arts award. Sadly, we did not receive our music G4A but we did get our making grant, 5 large scale costumes to be released summer 2017.

THE BIG PICTURE
As creative director for the troupe I’m always trying to think big. This year I’d like to create a simple but effective whole troupe choreography. This means that we’re all going to have to put a lot of effort in. Practice. Practice. Practice. Practice. Practice. Practice.

CELEBRATING 80 YEARS!
Coincidentally is it our Creative Director’s 40th birthday as well as City Arts’ 40th anniversary in 2017 and we want you all to celebrate in style with us on these momentous occasions.

HULA HOOPS
Do you hula hoop? We need hula hoopers please.

JOIN, LIKE & SHARE
How to support Can Samba, join like and share all the Can Samba posts and events, especially the events.

GET INVOLVED
Can Samba & City Arts troupe have won ‘Best Troupe’ for the second year running.
In 2017 we want to make it the biggest troupe possible with over 40 dancers and 40 drummers and it’ll definitely take over 40 people to help with making all those costumes.
LITTLE ONES WELCOME
We also want to involve the little ones this year, if you want to get your little ones involved in our amazing and inclusive Carnival troupe then get in touch.

GIGS 2017
Flying Free Carnival Takeover Weekend 25th & 26th March
Luton Carnival 28th May TBC
Brazilica (the UK’s biggest Samba Carnival) July 15th TBC
Riverside Festival 4th, 5th & 6th August TBC
Nottingham Carnival 20th August TBC
Plus, many more…

DANCERS WANTED
Stop putting it off, ignore the cold weather and come and shake your tale feather with our amazing and inclusive dance troupe. We rehearse weekly for those whose want the exercise and we will also be having quarterly catch up sessions for those who can’t make the weekly sessions.
Sessions are super cheap and your fee goes towards the 10% that we have to raise for our G4A.

DRUMMERS WANTED
Got rhythm? Need to beat it out? Once a month rehearsals will get you into drumming shape.
Super cheap for some of the best professional drum tuition around.

MAKERS NEEDED
It takes hours and hours and hours to make costumes from scrap. True to our environmentally driven theme, we are on a mission to keep adding to our stock of costumes trying to morph and elevate them from the previous season. On top of a mountain of washing to do, costumes to organise and store, repairs and the creation of new costumes, we are busy all year.
Perhaps you can lend a stitch in time and save our bacon?

VOLUNTEERS
We always need them and always want them. Anything from looking after the performers on the day to doing the laundry, taking pictures, promotional work. If fact if you can do it, we probably need you to do it. We will reward your CV’s and tummies in return.

THE IMPORTANCE OF OUR ELDERS
I think part of what makes Can Samba so very brilliant is our elder participants in their mobility scooters, which are kindly leant to us by the Shop Mobility Scheme Broadmarsh.
They add a wonderful element to our troupe, whilst making the age range of our troupe 11-94!!! Incredible.
We’re always looking for more participants so let your aunties and uncles, grannies and grandads know that we want them in Carnival to celebrate life together.

CAN’T SING, CAN’T DANCE, NOT MUSICAL, GOT NO TALENT
Don’t worry we’ll either bring it out of you or find you something else to do.
A Carnival troupe is only as successful as the people who support it, there are many ways to support but if it’s none of the above cold hard cash will do nicely. You won’t believe how much feathers and glittery thongs cost?!

Come and do something amazing in 2017 and join a Carnival troupe on the road, you will never forget it. It is a truly life-affirming event.

What are you waiting for?
