Joining us to suss all this out…
“Performance poetry’s key revivalist.” (Metro)
Luke Wright writes bawdy bar room ballads about small town tragedies and Westminster rogues. His fast paced, witty poems are crammed full of yummy mummies, debauched Tory grandees, maudlin commuters and leering tabloid paps. His live shows are enjoyed by thousands of people across the world every year, where he mixes the wistful with the downright comic to take audiences on an incredible emotional journey.
Glasgow-based songwriter and Rally & Broad favourite, with songs from latest EP Trapped in Amber. “With Trapped in Amber, He has taken sounds that are so bizarre that in isolation could be used by enterprising town councils to scare away feral pigeons.” (Folk Radio UK) Sounds barry tae us!
Kirstin’s debut novel Fishnet is published by Freight Books this month! Fishnet is about sex work, sisterhood and everyday economics, and is the result of three years’ worth of research.
‘Bold, sensual and unflinching, Fishnet lays bare a world too often misjudged and misunderstood. Kirstin Innes writes with courage, warmth and real insight. This is a hugely enjoyable and important book.’ – Emma Jane Unsworth
“Cosmic everymen occupying a perch roughly midway between Vladimir and Estragon and Laurel and Hardy, the Creative Martyrs specialise in satirical songs on ukulele and cello, and the explicit nudging of their audience’s political conscience.” (Time Out)
Hosted by resident comperes, poets and general players-with-words, Jenny Lindsay & Rachel McCrum. Give us your hearts. xx
