Hello GB Live Poets friends and supporters,
Sappho is coming! A famous poet born the island of Lesbos circa 630 BC will be on stage at the Mussel Inn on Thursday, April 20th.
Sappho says that not much has survived of her lyric poetry, yet she herself lives to enjoy a shandy at the Mussel Inn. She is best known for her poems about love.
You are welcome to Come As Your Favourite Poet (or one of them) complete with garb, attitude and a poem of theirs to share.
Gareth Edwards will open the evening with some bluesy, reggae, country, humorous, serious, happy songs. Multi-instrumentalist Gareth Edwards is a recording singer-songwriter and award-winning performer (Nelson Fringe Best Solo Show and Best In Show 2015).
"You’ll enjoy his take on life, love, happiness. You probably haven't heard anything like this in a while.” Graham Reid | Elsewhere
Open mic poets and singers can register on the night, or pre-register at this email. Koha entry.
Love to see you at GB Live Poets on Thursday 20 April - kicking off at 7:30 p.m.
