The University of London Institute in Paris has awarded Tomorrow's Warriors artistic director Gary Crosby OBE an honorary doctorate which is to be presented to the bassist and bandleader later this morning live streamed on the Institute website and YouTube Channel at 11am. Professor Anna-Louise Milne, director of graduate studies and research at the Institute, says: “Gary Crosby has contributed so significantly, not only to contemporary British culture, but also to building connections across cultures and across sounds. He embodies a border-less relation to the world founded on the capacity for music, words and time spent making these come together to change people’s lives. The University of London Institute in Paris has chosen to honour that work and Gary’s life as a marker of its guiding belief in the power of cultures and people to be better together.”
