Naked at the Albert Hall: The Inside Story of Singing

Fri 22 May 2015,

In her bestselling autobiography Bedsit Disco Queen, Tracey Thorn recalled the highs and lows of a thirty-year career in pop music. But with the touring, recording and extraordinary anecdotes, there wasn’t time for an in-depth look at what she actually did for all those years: sing. She sang with warmth and emotional honesty, sometimes while battling acute stage-fright.
Part memoir, part wide-ranging exploration of the art, mechanics and spellbinding power of singing, Naked at the Albert Hall takes in Dusty Springfield, Dennis Potter and George Eliot; Auto-tune, the microphone and stage presence; The Streets and The X Factor. Thorn offers a unique, witty and sharply observed insider’s perspective on the exhilarating joy and occasional heartache of singing.

Afterwards you are invited to attend the official launch of Bristol Women In Music in The Crypt of St George’s. This is a free event open to all members of the public. For more information about the launch night or to get involved with Bristol Women In Music please click contact.
