A Cambridge art gallery has unveiled its 2012 New Music Series featuring 12 cutting edge concerts performed by world class musicians.
John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin is widely considered as one of the most influential rock bassists of all time.
He will be the big draw for the Kettle's Yard series on May 20, 2012 when he joins Stephen Montague in an exclusive interview and concert. The evening will end with the Cambridge University New Music Ensemble performing his original works.
