Event Description

Voices of protest aren’t new, although they get more press coverage today. There was plenty to protest about in the sixties and this was the decade where those voices were set to music and became a genre in themselves. Join Clive for a reminder of what was upsetting people enough to write a song about it. No banner waving please.

  • Duration: 1hr
  • Online Zoom event: Join from your computer, phone or tablet (no replay available)

Meet the Host, Clive

Clive’s love of music and singing was encouraged at an early age and he won a choral scholarship to Bristol Cathedral School at age 10. A few years of six days a week evensong and matins on Sunday was a wonderful musical foundation – and probably rescued him from the mischiefs of early teenage years. Set free in 1967 he immersed himself in just about anything but church music. Moving to Birmingham he discovered whole new cultures he had not experienced – and the music that came with them. Working in the hotel and catering industry allowed access to rock superstars – Black Sabbath, Bowie, McCartney and more. Working as a waiter at The Elbow Room in Aston he was exposed to an infamous haunt of musicians and some of the shadier characters that accompanied them.

More recently Clive has trained as a classical baritone and sings in several choirs, both as a soloist and member of the basses. His musical tastes (perhaps as a result of his life experiences) range from Handel to Hendrix and everything in between – and his undying love of music shows through in his informed but light-hearted approach to recent musical history.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!

More Information

What if I can’t make the event?

If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.

Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?

Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.

How do I watch the live event?

Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.

How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)

Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
