2017-19 Session
That this House congratulates the celebrated Perthshire journalist, Stuart Cosgrove, on winning the 2018 Penderyn Music Book Prize, which, it understands, is the only UK-based book prize specifically for music titles, for Memphis 68: The Tragedy of Southern Soul; notes that this is the second part of his epic trilogy about soul music and social change in three cities across the US in the 1960s; acknowledges that Detroit 67: The Year that Changed Soul was nominated for the 2015 prize, and that the final instalment, Harlem 69: The Future of Soul, is due to be published in October 2018; commends Stuart on his knowledge of Memphis, even though, for him, the city is more than 2,000 miles from home; wishes him and the award organisers all the best; and hopes that Stuart does not find his new fame too hard to handle.
