The Jazz and Popular Music Study Group offers a regular opportunity to discuss a wide-ranging, interdisciplinary array of topics.

The series draws upon contributions from across the Reid School of Music, ECA, and beyond. It welcomes participation from students and academic colleagues alike. From time to time the group will host guest speakers and musical performances. Bring your lunch and come listen, discuss, share, and hear new things.

The group meets Wednesday afternoons during teaching weeks, from 1:10pm to 2:30pm in the Atrium (G10), Alison House.

For more information or to suggest a topic, please contact Dr. Marian Jago, Lecturer in Popular Music: m.s.jago@ed.ac.uk
