Importante onorificenza per meriti musicali concessa dall'Università del Kent a Robert Wyatt: la cerimonia di consegna è oggi, nella cattedrale di Canterbury. Ehi dottore!

"Comedian Harry Hill, broadcaster Sandi Toksvig, artist Billy Childish and musician Robert Wyatt are among those to receive honorary degrees from the University in ceremonies being held at Canterbury and Rochester cathedrals during July. Musician Robert Wyatt was born in Bristol but moved to Canterbury where he attended the Simon Langton Grammar School and was a leading light of the city’s influential music scene of the late 1960s as the founder of the band Soft Machine. He continued his music career as a solo artist and had a 1983 chart hit with the song Shipbuilding. He will receive a Doctor of Music degree, in recognition of his contribution to music, at a ceremony at Canterbury Cathedral on Friday 18 July."
