About the Author

Patrick Dailly studied at the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester, England, and was awarded the Edward Hecht Prize, the International Publishing Company Prize and the Leo Grindon Prize for Composition. Between 1972 and 1976 he played in a string of forgotten funky soul bands in the Manchester area, sustained by the Northern Soul explosion of the 70s. He played keyboards on Major Lance’s UK tour of 1974. A soul survivor, he was nevertheless hopelessly unprepared to teach music in comprehensive schools in Manchester and Birmingham. He joined the staff of Bretton Hall College of the University of Leeds in 1984. A deep seated socialism and the sense of pleasure at being an irritant to the establishment led to the introduction of the Popular Music Studies course there in 1990. Patrick has composed music for a succession of variable musicals which have enjoyed a wide range of acclaim. (The Robey Show, 1988; Miller and Me, 1989; Sex, Dreams and Two Reelers, 1992 and Sweet Miracles, 1999 have all featured at the Edinburgh Festival.)
