Exploring the Explorer: Tom McGrath in the Sixties and Seventies

Part of the Retrospective: The Future Is History Strand


Tickets available from 10:00 on the day of the event - Tue 27 June, 17:50, Filmhouse.

Tom McGrath - jazz musician, poet, playwright, cultural polymath – was born in 1940, and was deeply influenced by the wider social and cultural changes of the sixties. From his deep interest in modern jazz to his love of beat culture, this talk explores some of Tom’s early influences and experiences, both in Scotland and during his time in the London-based counter-culture, and reflects on how they helped to shape his own unique approach to the arts in seventies Scotland and beyond. Lecture delivered by Dr Angela Bartie, University of Edinburgh.
