Our London areas blog series covers the Musical history of each London postcode area in turn, reflecting some of each locale’s rock and roll tradition, story and imagery.
Here’s a post about the music history of Hampstead NW3 and the guitar lessons service we provide in that area of London:
Here’s part 2 of our Music & London blog series, celebrating where Music and London meet in a selection of the best videos on the internet. Here are today’s two offerings:
1) London in 1927
This incredible colour footage of 1920s London shot by an early British pioneer of film named Claude Frisse-Greene, who made a series of travelogues using the colour process his father William – a noted cinematographer – was experimenting with.
The film is set to two unbelievably beautiful pieces of music, made all the move moving by the accompanying cinematic, historic footage.
2) Busker Jack Broadbent
Great footage of hip-flask-slide-guitar busker Jack Broadbent doing his thing on the streets of London. His intense, deeply bluesy performances make his busking style one of the coolest, most Guitar-centric around.
