Sir George Martin Music Award
Sir George Martin Music Award was set up a year ago in connection with the Beatles former producer’s visit in Sweden to receive an honorary doctorate from Musikhögskolan in Malmö, Sweden. Staffan Olander, one of the worlds leading Beatles experts, is the instigator of the prize.
The multitalented Christoffer Lundquist is the first winner of Sir George Martin Music Award. At a gala night at the Palladium in Malmö last night the winner was announced and celebrated with Sir George Martin attending. In the jury’s statement: “With burning ambition to musical perfection Christoffer Lundquist transformed Vollsjö to a Scandinavian Abbey Road!” Christoffer Lundquist is a producer, musician and composer and he has produced over 100 albums for the Swedish and international artists. He has also been a member of the Swedish band Brainpool and also toured with Per Gessle and Roxette for the last 10 years. Congratulations Christoffer!
The Swedish Parliament Beatles Society is a very popular Beatles club in the Swedish Parliament. In fact, we are the biggest club already and still growing. As the founder I had the opportunity and the great honour to speak with Sir George Martin and hand over our invitation for him to come to and address the Parliament. We cross our fingers and hope that Sir George will accept the invitation.
It would be so great to hear The Man himself talk about the making of music that came to be music history. We cross our fingers and hope. Dreams are allowed.
