Words and music. This composite photo from our last outing at Black Book Café. A lot of fun, everyone welcome to Sunday's event, 23 April 7.30 Start, further info here. I drew up this photo from the video, and now recognised, enjoy its entirely misleading, choral quality. Still, words & music.
Black Book Café, February 2017. Dom, Clare and Nick
Pilgrim Station Review, by Neil Leadbeater. Write Out Loud is generous with its resources and always supportive, still, this amiable, appreciative review is more than I would have asked for: & for the first time we hear of, James's gift!
Round Two of Cas and Dom’s
Words and Music, this time on Sunday April the 23rd at 19:30 in The Little Vic, at
the foot of Gloucester Street in Stroud, in the courtyard of The Queen Victoria
pub. And we are all stringing our instruments, if that's the term. Danica is coming over from Newbury and we look forward to
welcoming Mandy, Ely and Kim.Cas has definitely put the
word out: Stroud News & Journal, PrLog – and I will see about hanging a few posters, don't they look great?? I must overhaul the blurb
on the blog.
My first review appears in ezine, The Lake, April 17. I think it's okay. It is a bit alarming to be quoted back at myself from the blog, and with no fit way to react to this or that observation which seems not-properly observed; but plenty were, and it is a good thing to have the poems in Pilgrim Station singled out and weighed differently as they are passed from hand to hand. Okay, there maybe an error or two, I know, I know. But, my first review. The grin of cheese!
Come to the Black Book in Stroud for an evening of wine, cake, acoustic sets and song interspersed with raconteuring and poetic celebration.Casimir and Sandra bring Mike and Nick, highly recommended, and we have visiting poets Paul, whose stock is rising and Clare, who carries the fire. More
information on facebook page, wordsandmusicstroud and soon to be posted on black
book site and generally around.There
will be corkage at the café, bring a bottle by all means, bring your
effervescent self. Maybe pick up a copy of Pilgrim Station. music from Cas and Paul's poetry also available.
Poetry at the Hub: January 25th,
7.30 p.m: Andrea Holland and Dominic James
Entry fee: £5
Our first reading of the New Year is a real adventure: we
welcome two poets who rejoice in the twists and turns of language at the same
time as bearing sharp witness to the weight of experience.
There will be an opportunity to read your own work, a
maximum of three poems: please talk to Peter Pegnall before the reading begins. PP
This is the first outing for Pilgrim Station so, a launch party. And it is right it should be with Peter playing host And it is a piece of luck to share the stage - if any - with Andrea Holland. Further venues will be posted in due course, there will certainly be celebrations and performances to come across the Midlands and the South: 2017 hits the road at a run.
