THE KPM ALLSTARS LIVE AT THE BRITISH LIBRARY

COMPOSERS: ALAN HAWKSHAW AND BRIAN BENNETT

Presented in association with KPM/EMI Production Music.

Library music’ is at the heart of some of our most-loved British sounds: the rousing introduction to Grandstand, the theme to Mastermind, the afternoon quirkiness of the Grange Hill opening credits. Made for TV and radio, library music offers glorious, perfect pieces of pop. Often brilliantly creative, and recorded in some of the world’s finest studios it has become increasingly popular slice of musical history.

Join some of library music label KPM’s star composers and their big band and listen back to The KPM Allstars at the British Library.

With Alan Hawkshaw, of The Mohawks fame, Keith Mansfield, a favourite provider of samples, Brian Bennett, the longest serving stick-man from The Shadows, John Cameron, award winning film composer and Alan Parker, guitarist who taught David Bowie and Jimi Hendrix a few tricks. Not to forget the star of the show, Hawkshaw’s battered Hammond which gave us the greatest organ groove ever written, The Mohawks The Champ.

KPM is the most established name in Library music and has been a division of EMI Music Publishing for well over 50 years. The KPM archive is now resident at the British Library.
