Kidderminster College presents a masterclass with bass legend Neil Murray! Neil's career is woven into the history of British rock, including his time as bassist for Whitesnake, Black Sabbath, Gary Moore & Brian May. His influential style helped shape the evolution of hard rock from the jazz rock crossover of the 70s in bands like Colloseum II through to Whitesnake's era-defining '1987' global smash. Neil will talk about his career, demonstrate some of the lines that made him one of the most sought-after bassists in the country and share advice from his life in music.
The 2nd half of the evening will be a performance by Ley Lines — Steve Lawson, Andy Edwards and Phi Yaan-Zek are the bass/drums/guitar teachers at Kidderminster College, and have released two critically acclaimed albums as a trio. This is their long-awaited live debut outside of the college, and promises to be an enthralling high energy set of improvised music crossing many styles and sounds!
