Liverpool has gained a national and international reputation for popular music, and was recently designated a UNESCO City of Music. This book explores the richness of Liverpool’s live performance scene and tells a story of changing music sites, sounds, and experiences, highlighting music’s contribution to the city’s history and identity, and showing how the city’s architectural and urban form has shaped its musical life and character.
            By touching on groups and artists involved with many diverse musical styles, authors Sara Cohen and Robert Kronenburg reveal new and fascinating information on well-known historic venues such as the Cavern Club and the Blue Angel, as well as new settings such as the Echo Arena. Featuring a glossary of artists and venues, previously unpublished photographs, illustrations, and music maps, this book investigates Liverpool’s musical landscapes in unprecedented depth and detail.
