Welcome to this brand new blog! We are North East Music History - a group of people who are interested in preserving the history of music in the North East of England, UK. We share our knowledge and information informally via our North East Music History Facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/groups/northeastmusichistory/ .
seek to improve knowledge and understanding of North East music history, educating local
residents and other interested parties about North East music venues, the bands
that played, the record stores and other hangouts and the culture associated
with them, across all musical genres and eras.
Blog posts covering some of the fascinating stories brought to light in our Facebook group will follow here soon.
I, Hazel Plater, admin of this blog, don't intend to write all the posts myself. See, it says 'we' up above! Please send your well written and fully researched blog posts (please see my first posting for a style guide) via Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/hazel.plater and you will be given full credit for your contribution. Look forward to reading your submissions!
