The University were delighted to welcome acclaimed recording artist, DJ and lead singer of multi-million selling rock band, Skunk Anansie, Skin, returning after becoming the University’s first Chancellor last year.
During the visit, musicians from BMus (Hons) Popular Music Performance were given the opportunity to perform live for Skin. Joined by musician, artist and Skunk Anansie colleague Erika Footman, they provided the students with feedback, noting the high performing standard and providing thoughtful critiques on their performances.
“We were delighted to welcome Skin back to the University to work with our students. To gain critical feedback from an acclaimed performer is an invaluable opportunity to an aspiring musician and I know the students appreciated her insights”
Skin also took the opportunity to tour the University building and meet with Vice-Chancellor Professor Simone Wonnacott and members of the University board.
Skin later played in Leeds with her band Skunk Anansie as part of their ongoing European tour, with students from the University being given the opportunity to watch the soundcheck and later attend the gig.
