Friday 13th January: Pauline Black was reading from Black By Design followed by a Q+A.
'Hands down Pauline Black possessed the best voice that ever graced a 2-tone release. Blessed with a bewitching soprano and dramatic panache, Black's voice reached plateaus that made every other musical detail sound like part of a backdrop painted just to set the stage for her entrance' Rolling Stone Magazine
Lead singer for platinum-selling 2-tone band The Selecter, Pauline Black has been in the music business for over thirty years. The only woman in a movement dominated by men, she was the Queen of Ska.
