Music and Words with David Freeman

Beatles historian Mark Lewisohn talks to broadcaster David Freeman about the group’s Liverpool upbringing, and of how the unforeseen arrival of two forms of American music – rock and skiffle – transformed their lives and inspired them to become musicians. He explains how the Beatles began the journey that made them arguably the 20th-century’s greatest cultural force. The event will be accompanied by extracts from music of the time including by Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Lonnie Donegan and Eddie Cochran.

Lewisohn is the author of Tune In, the critically-acclaimed first volume in his biographical history, The Beatles: All These Years.
