Celebrating Cassius X: Playlists and Podcasts on Launch Day

  03 Sep '20   |  Posted by: Birlinn

A new book from Stuart Cosgrove is always cause for celebration, and under normal circumstances we’d be taking Stuart out on tour to perform in bookshops, festival events, libraries and nightclubs (yes, really!) all across the country. While this isn’t possible for the time being, we’re bringing you a slice of socially-distanced soul in the form of a podcast, playlist and video event so you can experience the launch of Stuart’s fascinating new book Cassius X: A Legend in the Making from the safety of your own home.

So, turn up the volume and raise a glass to Stuart Cosgrove and Cassius X.

In this exclusive launch-day episode of the Birlinn Limited Podcast, Stuart Cosgrove is interviewed by Yorkshire-based journalist (and fellow soul music aficionado) Heath Common about Cassius X: A Legend in the Making.

And if all the music chat has got you in the mood for a boogie, treat yourself to this Boxing and Soul-inspired YouTube playlist compiled by Stuart Cosgrove (which you can also find on page 247 of the book). It’s the perfect soundtrack to yet another remarkable feat of storytelling from Stuart Cosgrove.

Finally, in case you missed it, you still have chance to watch Stuart’s Edinburgh International Book Festival event with Val McDermid from 17th August 2020.
