Richard Tandy and Dave Scott-Morgan: Earthrise

Source https://www.bcu.ac.uk/conservatoire/events-calendar/earthrise-09-11-2019

Amazingly, its fifty years since the first moon landing and the first earth rise was seen by men but still Earthrise - the music of Richard Tandy and Dave Scott-Morgan (Electric Light Orchestra musicians) - chimes on… weightless and timeless, an evergreen commemoration to the excitement and mystery of the time.

It was on Christmas Eve 1968 when the crew of Apollo 8 first orbited the moon as a reconnaissance for the Apollo 11 mission and took the iconic photograph of the earth rising out of the lunar landscape, but was a long time later - in 1985 – (when the British pop group ELO were between touring dates), that the Tandy Morgan Duo recorded the album of songs Dave had written about that defining event.

Richard Tandy, long time keyboard player for The Electric Light Orchestra and Dave Scott-Morgan guitarist, vocals and composer invite you to the première of an orchestral presentation of their symphonic concept album Earthrise.
