Ryan supports Supermoon and Rally & Broad

January 12, 2015

Next Friday, 23 January, I will be participating in not one, but TWO great nights out in Edinburgh, supporting the launch of Supermoon, the band ‘rising from the ashes of Meursault’, and reading a collaborative piece with Rachel McCrum at the January edition of Rally & Broad, which is headlined by the outstanding performance poet Francesca Beard in a rare Scottish appearance.

These are both going to be amazing shows, both of which cost an unbelievably economical five pounds, both of which will change your life in small but indelible ways. Hope to see you at one or maybe even both!
