Launderette Sessions: John Murry
@ Gala Theatre and CinemaBook Now
23 September 2017
John Murry was adopted at birth into the family of William Faulkner. Some have speculated that the Faulkner blood might also run in his veins, but that should be left for a Southern Gothic novel yet to be written (or perhaps re-written).
Raised in Tupelo, Mississippi, in the shadow of Elvis, his undiagnosed autism led to troubles at an early age which led to prescribed medication, which led to unprescribed medication which led to being institutionalised for addiction and mental health issues at a too young age.
Eventually, discarded onto the streets of Memphis, he found music, which became the one constant positive force in his life.
This event is presented as part of the Launderette Sessions – a boutique music festival created in partnership by the Gala Theatre and Old Cinema Launderette.
