Culture Now: Vashti Bunyan

About

Join us for a lunchtime talk with singer songwriter Vashti Bunyan, in conversation with music writer Rob Young. Vashti Bunyan is a singer songwriter who in 1970 released her first album, Just Another Diamond Day. The album sold very few copies, and Bunyan, discouraged, abandoned her musical career. By 2000, her album had acquired a cult following; it was re-released and Bunyan recorded more songs, initiating the second phase of her musical career after a gap of thirty years. Rob Young is a Contributing Editor of The Wire magazine and the author of Electric Eden: Unearthing Britain's Visionary Music (Faber and Faber, 2010). He edited No Regrets: Writings On Scott Walker (Orion, 2012) and is currently working on an occult history of British film and television.
