50 years ago, in 1961, a cheeky 18 year old lad from Wavertree in Liverpool, spent many hours with his band at The Cavern Club. That band of course were The Beatles and they went on to play, in total, 292 times at this legendary venue.
On 29 November we celebrate the life of George Harrison, who left behind a huge legacy of music and philosophy for us to remember him by.
We use this music and philosophy in a very special programme on the tenth anniversary of his passing.
Joining us are Brute Force (with whom George recorded "King of Fuh" on the very day he walked out on The Beatles on 10 January 1969), Arthur Kelly (his best friend from the Institute who has stories to share that were only known to George and himself), The Rebels (originally George's first band with Arthur now revisited by a band of young musicians from Oxford for this one day only), Singh Strings (who will provide us with a taste of the music George loved so much from India), The Mersey Beatles (Liverpool's own best loved Beatle Tribute Band), Tsema (a young soloist with the voice of an angel to cast a very different slant on one of George's best loved "tunes" - as he would call them) and Andre Barreau of the Bootleg Beatles (who we are honoured will be our solo George for the night).
Finally, we will also be playing host to the Radha Krishna Temple (Hare Krishnas). Every 29th November since 2001, they have held an “Evening for George” at the magnificent house he gave to them in 1973 - but on this special anniversary will be chanting for him in his hometown.
