Chinwag….A chat about life and whatever else comes up
It is an absolute delight to be welcoming Horace Panter to Chinwag to chat about life, music, art and whatever else comes up.
As Sir Horace Gentleman, he toured the world and was part of one of our greatest and best loved musical exports, The Specials, a band whose cultural impact was, without question, deeply profound to a generation. That the band are still playing big sell out shows is testament to how much they mean to so many.
Although much of his career has been defined by music, Horace is also a renowned artist, exhibiting internationally. He graduated in Fine Art in 1975 from what is now Coventry University, (where he first met Jerry Dammers and the concept of the punk/ska band materialised) and now creates work inspired by a diverse range of styles including the Pop Art paraphernalia of artists such as Peter Black, Andy Warhol and Robert Indiana to the depictions of light in paintings by Edward Hopper and David Hockney.
Hosted by psychotherapist Chris Madden, Chinwag invites you to lean in and listen to a conversation about life and anything else that comes up. Unlike a Q&A, this is an opportunity to get to know someone a bit better, hear a few of their tales, find out what makes them tick, share some insights and maybe ask a few questions too.
As ever, proceeds are in support of MAP (Music & Arts Productions) which enables disadvantaged young people at risk of exclusion from mainstream education access to art and music courses.
