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.
