An evening with Ken Scott
Leeds Beckett welcomes you to spend an evening with Ken Scott, recording engineer and producer for artists such as the Beatles, Pink Floyd, Elton John, George Harrison and David Bowie.
Throughout his fifty plus years in the recording industry, Ken Scott has had a reputation as being 'one of the best'. His start, at the age of 16, came from the world-renowned Abbey Road studios. Within a very short time he had worked his way up to the position of recording engineer and found himself working with the elite of the popular music world.
Ken currently Ken tours the world giving master classes and lecturing on his career; he is a Senior Lecturer at Leeds School of Arts and has co-written his biography Abbey Road to Ziggy Stardust.
Ken Scott’s talk will take the audience back to what many call ‘the golden age of British recording.’ He starts where his journey started and through the use of photographs, many unseen, and the breaking down of some of his most famous recordings, he will take the audience into the studios where magic happened. A must see for musicians, technicians and fans alike, this is the story of how a bored 16-year-old ended up being a part of over half a billion records sold.
Don’t miss your opportunity to hear from 'one of the best' in the recording industry.
