John Cain's talk on Music Hall, 14th December 2019
This is the first of two items on the origins of the Victorian Music Hall tradition. It consists of a recording of the talk given by folk singer and Music Hall enthusiast John Cain at the meeting of the News From Nowhere Club on Saturday 14th Dec 2019. John illustrates his very entertaining talk with short bursts of song and fills in a great deal of historical background as well as personal views on everything he describes. We hope to take another visit to this topic when we talk to John Whitehorn, another local Music Hall enthusiast, early in the New Year.
