Invited by the Popular Music course, he will give a performance and take questions from the floor on Wednesday February 7th, providing “insights into the music industry”. Dr Jasmine Shadrack, Senior Lecturer in Popular Music, told the UoN website: ““Sid has a wealth of experience to share, from being part of a band and touring internationally through to forging a solo career and conquering new markets. We can’t wait!”
