Close Up’ Feat Mark Stewart
Mark Stewart will be at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester discussing his work, career and ideas with DJ/writer Dave Haslam, taking audience questions, followed by a signing session.
One of the most intriguing people ever to use a microphone, Mark Stewart came to prominence in late 1970s Bristol fronting the Pop Group – politically-engaged and sonically-adventurous with an intensity matched by few bands before or since.
Mark worked with Adrian Sherwood of On-U Sound through the 1990s and beyond, releasing records firstly as Mark Stewart and the Maffia, then as a solo artist. Reformed, the Pop Group released their first studio album in 35 years, ‘Citizen Zombie’, in February 2015.
Doors open 6.15, event starts 7pm.
