Legendary broadcaster and foreign correspondent Andy Kershaw comes to The Met

The Met is pleased to present an evening with maverick broadcaster, pioneering DJ and unstoppable foreign correspondent Andy Kershaw on Wednesday 25 September at 8pm.

.

Andy Kershaw truly has no off-switch, already he’s lived ten lives to everybody’s one. Over a 25 year career he has worked for the Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen, shared an office with John Peel and amassed a record collection that weighs more than seven tonnes.

 

Kershaw has visited 97 countries and, as a rock and roll war correspondent, has reported from some of the world’s most perilous places including Iraq, Sierra Leone, North Korea, Angola and Haiti and was one of very few journalists to be an eyewitness to the Rwanda genocide. He has won more Sony Radio awards than any other broadcaster.

 

Andy Kershaw has led an extraordinary life. His unrivalled role in bringing World Music to the ears of the west is just part of the story of this man whose zest for life, music, people, experience and travel made him the finest British broadcaster bar none.” – Stephen Fry

 

Tickets for the event are £12. For more information or to book tickets phone 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz.
