Liverpool’s Bluecoat Gallery continue their support of all things Beefheart with a special event to mark Trout Mask Replica’s 50th anniversary.

Beefheart biographer Mike Barnes will be leading a discussion about the album and artist Derek Tyman will be creating a scale model of the Trout House!

Bluecoat Artistic Director Bryan Biggs chairs the event, which continues Bluecoat’s relationship to Beefheart, from his first ever exhibition of paintings at the venue in 1972 to a special weekend in 2017 that explored him as a ‘total artist’ who embraced music, art, writing and performance.

The event is on Sunday 16th June 2019.

      Yes, you’re right. He’s ‘proposing’ to build one.

      That piece on the Coventry Uni. site seems to be full of content but not much detail. However, if you download the PDF (see link at top right) it does includes an additional piece of information that the venue will be Cunard Building and Bluecoat Gallery Liverpool 2019-2020
