Tidelines Book Festival presents Stuart Cosgrove HEY AMERICA!

 Harbour Arts Centre, Irvine, KA12 8PZ
 Fri 23rd September 2022
HEY AMERICA! The Epic Story of Black Music and the White House.

Writer and presenter Stuart Cosgrove explores how successive presidents have recruited musicians to boost their election campaigns and help shape public policy – often with disastrous consequences. From the Vietnam War’s influence on soul and Obama’s love of Prince to the rise of Black Lives Matter in opposition to Donald Trump, this discussion will fascinate fans of music and politics alike.

The evening will include live music from the incredible KITTI, winner of The Scottish Jazz Award’s Best Vocalist & Scottish Music Awards’ Best Female Breakthrough.
