For me it was just a gentle warmup for a couple of full on gigs later this month. On Sunday 17th the Rhythm Method Tour comes to The Fountain featuring the terrific Mark Niel and The Anti Poet along with support slots from Leanne Moden and myself. It's all hosted by Fay Roberts. Details and tickets are available here.
On February 28th I will be reading at the Boathouse, the new venue for CB1 poetry. It'll be my fifth headline reading at CB1 - the last was in 2007 when the it was still held at CB1 Cafe. Over the years I have seen some of the most established, widely respected poets read at CB1. It is a terrific honour to be invited back.
I'm delighted to be joined for the event by Patrick Sheil who describes himself on the CB1 site as 'the singer and occasional bassist of Cambridge indie group Moth Conspiracy. His publications include studies of Kierkegaard, Levinas and Merleau-Ponty. He is now employed by Cambridgeshire County Council as a web developer in Adult Social Care. This Patrick has often shared a platform with tonight's main Patrick, and together they have stood firm on a range of Patrick-related issues.'
Two Patricks for the price of one can't be a bad deal. get full details from the CB1 website.
Finally here's a song from Patrick's band Moth Conspiracy:
