MickRonsonfest: Lucy Beaumont + John Hutchinson + Maggi Ronson + Stephen Escritt + Tom Wilcox
“I was struck by the enormity of Mick’s contribution to every record he’d played on – arrangements, incredible guitar, beautiful backing vocals, classical piano – he did it all, and he was northern and glamorous” - Morrissey
The ICA will survey the career of the iconic guitarist and producer Mick Ronson (26 May 1946 – 29 April 1993) on the eve of the 20th anniversary of his death, in partnership with his sister Maggi, and assess his impact on the history of popular music. His importance and influence are often understated; this event will amplify the role of this brilliant and unassuming musician in making some of the best rock/pop records of all time.
The programme for MickRonsonfest is composed of:
1pm to 5pm (including interval at 3pm) – Premiere screening of ‘The Mick Ronson Memorial Concert’ from 1994 with introduction by Maggi Ronson and talks from special guests including Gary Kemp (Spandau Ballet) and Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols, Rich Kids)
5:30pm to 6:30pm – Premiere screening of ‘Ronson at the Rainbow’, excerpts from Mick Ronson’s solo gig at the Rainbow Theatre in 1974. Introduction by Mick’s Wife (and David Bowie’s hairdresser/wardrobe mistress in the Ziggy era), Suzi Ronson
• 6:30pm to 7:30pm – Mick Ronson DJ set in the Bar from Zoe McLeod and Dave Chin
7:30pm - Comedy from Hull comedienne Lucy Beaumont, then a set from John Hutchinson, touring guitarist with Bowie and Ronson, followed by the premiere performance by Maggi Ronson and special guests of her new album Sweet Dreamer, a tribute to her brother’s life and music.
9pm to Midnight – Mick Ronson DJ set in the Bar from Stephen Escritt and Tom Wilcox
There will also be an exhibition of rare Mick Ronson photos, letters and press cuttings from the Ronson family archive.

presence. She's slight and vulnerable, a bit ditzy, and utterly charming' (Chortle)
