John Mayer (1929-2004) was a composer and musician of Anglo-Indian descent, trained in both Indian and Western Classical music. His pioneering work from the 1950s onwards brought the foundation of fusion music, a common feature in British music making. He opened up the possibility of successful collaborations between artists in different genres. John Mayer’s story is key to understanding the heritage of contemporary British music.
‘Meet John Mayer’ explored various aspects of John Mayer’s life, with over twenty panels and main subject headings such as: his life, timeline, violinist, composer, Indo Jazz Fusions, his legacy and more.
