Blac Rabbit performs Penny Lane at AES 147

Blac Rabbit performs the Beatles' "Penny Lane" at AES 147 in New York, October 18, 2019. They were part of the John Lennon educational tour bus exhibit at the AES New York show.

This song, Penny Lane by The Beatles, is the one that the late great arranger Clive Bradley heard played by Starlift Steel Orchestra, and arranged by Ray Holman, and said convinced him, that the steel orchestra was a viable music force. Because of Starflift's and Ray Holman's work on the steel orchestra version of "Penny Lane" - Clive Bradley went on to become involved in Pan, and thereafter at the subsequent urging of Dr. Roy Cape.

Listen to Starlift's version of "Penny Lane" - circa 1970 - at the following link:
