From Manchester to the Mississippi

Thursday 13 November 2008 11:30-12:00 (Radio 4 FM)


CP Lee tells the story of the Manchester leg of the 1964 concert tour that showcased some of America's greatest black musicians.

That concert, which featured Muddy Waters, Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee and Sister Rosetta Tharpe, was broadcast on television and inspired many British young musicians who would go on to find fame in the 1960s and beyond.

As well as rarely heard material from the concert, Lee hears from those who were there in the audience, including the tour's manager Joe Boyd.

Followed by News.
