Hendrix in Britain Opens at the Handel House Museum

. August 27, 2010 . 0 Comments

In 1968 Jimi Hendrix moved into the top floor flat of 23 Brook Street with his English girlfriend Kathy Etchingham. The flat is now the administrative office of Handel House Museum, and an English Heritage Blue Plaque recognises Hendrix’s residence.

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of Hendrix’s death in 1970, Handel House will be presenting a new exhibition: Hendrix in Britain. With rarely seen exhibits, images and music, the exhibition will trace his meteoric rise to fame in London and his lasting impact on rock music.

Exhibition open 25 August – 7 November 2010.

The Museum will also host a series of special events to accompany the exhibition. These will include guitar workshops exploring Hendrix guitar effects, his particular use of amps and tips for playing guitar like Hendrix.
