18th September: Peter Wadsworth – ‘Strawberry Studios’

Strawberry StudiosThe opening track of the album 'The Season 17-18' will be played by Dr. Peter Wadsworth - ‘Strawberry Studios’. Throughout the world the musical legacy of Manchester is famous. Perhaps less well known is the important part that Stockport played. Opened in 1967 in a 20 foot square room over a record shop, the recording studio, established itself as a premium recording spot after being taken over by Eric Stewart and Peter Tattersall. The facility offered technical opulence not seen in the north before. A recording studio that welcomed Sir Paul McCartney, The Stone Roses, Neil Sedaka, 10cc, Joy Division, and The Smiths through its doors.


Peter will be using both sound and vision to reveal this modern industrial history, the music industry of the hat town, Stockport.

Please note, all 8 tracks, of 'Season 17-18', will be revealed at our monthly meetings from September to April. All tracks are played live, and are not available in any other formats. Should you come along to the September meeting, then all eight live performances may be booked for just £10, this £10 incudes access to the Society trips, and even the post meeting refreshments! A bargain that is sure to please.

Doors open 7:15pm ready for the meeting at 7:45. The meetings take place in Marple Methodist Church on Church Lane in Marple.  Postcode: SK6 7AY
