Details

Alongside his interviewing and writing Sir Michael Parkinson has spent much of his career promoting the appreciation of the music of the Great American Songbook and encouraging those of the new generation who are fighting to keep that flame alive. In the process, he has developed an encyclopaedic knowledge of that genre as well as interviewing some of the greats and finding time to talent spot the likes of Bublé, Krall and Cullum. But he is much more than a jazzer. His taste in music takes in everything from Razorlight to Paul Simon, The Beatles to Oasis with the consequence that Sir Michael’s seal of approval came to mean a great deal with every record label in the country wanting to bottle his A&R talent.

This passion and love of music in all its forms is celebrated in a new live theatrical show. In conversation with his long-term producer, collaborator and son Mike, using clips from his classic and extensive archive and featuring live performances by the multi-talented Joe Stilgoe we take a fascinating, entertaining and informative journey to the musical heart of Sir Michael Parkinson via Barnsley, sixties Manchester, Wood Lane and Broadcasting House.
