Liverpool's Musical Landscapes

Professor Rob Kronenburg and Professor Sara Cohen recently took part in an hour long discusion on their new book Liverpool’s Musical Landscapes for BBC Radio Merseyside. Drawing an audience of 10,000 listeners, the programme is available until the 21st of August to listen to on the BBC website.

Liverpool’s Musical Landscapes examines Liverpool's popular music through the history of the places where it has been performed, from the Cavern Club to the Echo Arena. The book shows how music is bound up with changes in the social, cultural and economic life of cities more generally, particularly provincial, 'post-industrial' cities in the UK, Europe and US.

The collaboration draws on a wealth of research experience from the respective departments and is published by Historic England.
