Erstwhile Pink Floyd/Roxy Music bassist-turned-comedian and author, Guy Pratt, will be the guest speaker at the 16 November event. So far, four of the six 2010 Fellowship recipients have been confirmed to attend the Lunch presentation at London’s Roof Gardens: Mark Knopfler, Hugh Padgham, Ken Scott and – on behalf of her husband, Colin Sanders – Rosie Sanders.
The two remaining APRS Sound Fellowship recipients are Quincy Jones – who is sending a video message – and Sir Paul McCartney. The guest speaker – who also traditionally makes the President’s Toast – is bassist, comedian and author (of the recommended tour anecdotes collection, My Bass & Other Animals) Guy Pratt.
Sponsorshipo for the Lunch is provided for the fourth consecutive year by Focusrite and FX Rentals, alongside new sponsor Munro Acoustics, which is currently celebrating its thirtieth anniversary.
