Interview: Kadiatu Kanneh-Mason

This event is jointly organised by the Berwick Music Series and the Berwick Literary Festival.

October 14th 2022 | 6:00pm – 7:00pm | Online via Zoom | FREE

Seven brothers and sisters. All of them classically trained musicians. One was Young Musician of the Year and performed for the Royal Family. The eldest has released her first album, showcasing the works of Clara Schumann. These siblings don’t come from the rarefied environment of elite music schools, but from a state comprehensive in Nottingham. How did they do?

In her book, their mother. Kadiatu Kanneh- Mason, opened up about what it takes to raise a musical family in a Britain divided by class and race. What comes out is a beautiful and heartrending memoir of the power of determination, camaraderie and a lot of hard work. The Kanneh-Masons are a remarkable family. But what truly sparkles in the eloquent memoir is the joyous affirmation that children are a gift and we must do all we can to nurture them.

Kadiatu will be interviewed by Aisling ni Bhriain.
