The Beatles remain a pop culture phenomenon even among Gen Z fans

Beatles Quiz

Here are the answers:

Question 1: Skiffle music came mainly from Africa and The United States of America. African slaves were cruelly transported to the USA to work in the cotton fields. They were treated badly and sung songs about their plight. They used cheap guitars and home-made instruments to play their songs. This music wasn't exactly skiffle, but the first British skiffle bands sang many of the songs that these African-=Americans first sung

Question 2: Liverpool is in the north-east of England near the Irish Sea.

Question 3: Teenagers in the 1950s and 1960s listened to the radio and bought records that came into Britain by ship. Liverpool was a great place for people to start music groups because it was an important port. Young people could listen to some of the records that came on ships from America. The music was easy to play, remember and learn. This is why there were so many skiffle groups in cities like Liverpool.New 'Music At Home' Yumu Packages available - Charanga
