David Whyte, a guitarist, told us about the changes in the music industry from a personal perspective. He read an excellent article he wrote about a concert where he was part of the 4 piece backing group for Sarah Vaughan at the height of her fame (there was supposed to be a 16 peice group but the other 12 got stuck in a blizzard!!). At the end of the highly interesting speech he left the story hanging – he found himself broke hundreds of miles from home in the middle of France. Maybe there will be a part 3 sometime!
Here he is, pictured with Harun Miah who invited him to talk, holding one of his early albums.
