The Gluepot Connection celebrates the coming together of a generation of established and emerging composers who defined British music in the middle of the last century (and beyond) in a cornerstone of British life – the local pub. ‘That bloody Gluepot’ was the nickname given to The George public house in central London by Sir Henry Wood, exasperated that its proximity to the legendary Queen’s Hall proved irresistible to his musicians. It also served as the watering hole for a coterie of composers whose wide-ranging influence rivalled that of their literary counterparts, the fabled Bloomsbury Set. Andrew Griffiths skilfully joins the dots of the Gluepot’s tangled relationships and musical achievements with the Londinium chamber choir to present a vivid portrait of a moment unique in British music.
