Facebook

Just a reminder - There are now two Facebook pages for George Lloyd!  

The Society administers the page called George Lloyd Centenary, and there is also a ‚ÄėBand/Musician‚Äô page, administered by a third party. If you are a Facebook user, please add your name to our Friends list, which is updated more often than this Newsletter!¬†

Facebook turns up some interesting comments:‚Äé"He (Lloyd) sometimes resembles the French composers of Les Six, in whose work a high degree of polish and craftsmanship goes hand in hand with genuine popular appeal."
