Katrina Porteous and Chris Ormston — Poetry and Northumbrian Pipes
Saturday Sept 2nd, 7.30pm
Humshaugh Village Hall, Humshaugh, Northumberland
Please join us for this cafe-style evening. It will be in two halves, and will include a lively performance of poems from ‘Two Countries’, accompanied by Chris on pipes, plus newer poems and some solo sets from Chris. There’ll be Northumbrian landscapes, dialect, fossils, fishing, the solar system and the Roman Wall — and (thanks to NASA and Northumbria University) some amazing real film of the surface of the Sun. I’ll also be talking intermittently about my work and inspiration, and answering questions. Wine, soft drinks and table snacks will be available. It should be a good night!
The event is being hosted jointly by Humshaugh Arts Project and Humshaugh Publications. Many thanks to both. Reservations / info: 01434 681924
