Kadiatu Kanneh-Mason wins The Royal Philharmonic Society Storyteller Award 2021

2nd November, 2021

The Royal Philharmonic Society has chosen Kadiatu Kanneh-Mason as the winner of their Storyteller Award for her memoir House of Music: Raising the Kanneh-Masons

Kadie won the award at a ceremony last night, an evening that celebrated musical heroes who have inspired the nation through the pandemic. House of Music is a moving and inspirational account of determination, music and love. It is a story about race, immigration and education. It is the story of a mother and her family. And it is the story of her children, seven phenomenally talented musicians.

‘Riveting, taking in prejudice as well as sacrifice. There are 4.30am starts, lost instruments, fractured wrists, all captured with vivid flourishes. A paean to camaraderie.’ Observer

 ‘Kadiatu Kanneh-Mason’s story offers a ray of sunshine.’ Financial Times Books of the Year
