Cumbria’s Music Man

A look back at my mad pop world

Andy Park


70’s and 80’s Carlisle in Cumbria, a sleepy provincial city about as far away from London as you can get! Second only to Liverpool, it was the centre of the United Kingdom for pop music, where you could see a different pop group, from all parts of the country, every night of the week.

Andy Park should know – because he booked them all!

In this book he relives the days when Cumbria attracted some of the major music acts in the world, and even when local bands playing dances in village halls pulled in huge crowds.

A book full of memories, characters and funny facts from over fifty years in music and entertainment.
