The Wellspring: Barney Norris in conversation with David Owen Norris

The novelist and playwright Barney Norris and the pianist, composer and broadcaster David Owen Norris return to their college to discuss The Wellspring (Seren 2018), a new book of interviews on music and cultural inheritance. Uniquely placed, as father and son artists, to engage with the question of how things are passed on, they explore the way a life is formed by what has come before, and the way we form that past as we go through our lives. The book is part memoir, part narrative of how music has changed and grown, and part discussion of the nature of cultural inheritance and of artistic creativity.  Your questions and comments will be welcome. Admission is Free. RSVP to For further information visit:
