Ryan is on Tour with Saltire

November 12, 2015

Really pleased to be reading with other shortlistees for the Saltire Literary Awards. We’ll hit Waterstones Dumfries on Wednesday 12 November at 6pm, where Liz Lochhead will be joining us, before heading to Waterstones Inverness on Wednesday 19 again at 6pm, alongside Elizabeth Reeder. If you’re in the area it would be super lovely to see you.

Viewmaster in Dumfries for the Big Burns Supper

January 7, 2015

Delighted to announce that Viewmaster will be live and reading to you in person at the Big Burns Supper in Dumfries! Myself and the super talented Dan Gorman will be reading and playing on Friday 30 (9-11am; 1-3.30pm) and Saturday 31 (7-9.15pm). It’s a 15 minute show, tickets are £5/£4 (conc), and you can book to avoid disappointment here.

Please Note: due to concerns about the suitability of Greyfriars Church, the performances will now be taking place in the Electric Theatre Workshop space. If you’re in town for the Big Supper, do come and join us.

ViewMaster is – a personal slideshow for your eyes and ears only. Poet Ryan Van Winkle and musician Dan Gorman lead you on a playful, sometimes surreal jounrey to a distant land and bring you back in under 15 minutes. 

Ryan Van Winkle is a Poet in Residence at Edinburgh City Libraries. In 2012 his show Red, Like Our Room Used to Feel was one of the top ten best-rated shows at Edinburgh Fringe. 

Dan Gorman is a musician who has done field recordings in Afghanistan, Syria and an abandoned military base in Germany.
