Born To Be Wide returns to the Edinburgh International Book Festival on Tuesday 18 August with a free evening of interviews and live music as part of the Jura Unbound programme.
Guests include music journalist Wyndham Wallace, who will be reading from his book Lee, Myself and I, an account of working with producer and composer Lee Hazlewood, best known for penning Nancy Sinatra hit, These Boots Were Made For Walking.
He will be joined by broadcaster, TV executive and former NME writer Stuart Cosgrove, whose book Detroit 67 – focuses on the year when soul music came of age and underground counterculture flourished.
The night also features live performances by Ded Rabbit and Dundee artist, Be Charlotte, who has been developing her own electronic instrument with Cambridge physicist Dr Kate Stone.
Last year’s Born To Be Wide night at Jura Unbound featured veteran music manager Simon Napier Bell [see video below], as well as sets by Withered Hand and The Jellyman’s Daughter.
