We’re turning the cafe/bar at the Mitchell Library in Glasgow into a literary cabaret for the Golden Hour – poetry and prose, and music acoustic and electric. Hosted by Ryan Van Winkle, Reader-in-Residence at the Scottish Poetry Library and featuring sharp words from Forest Publication’s latest collection (Stolen Stories), brilliant music and visual rubbish with writers Nick Holdstock and Kapka Kassabova (author of Street Without a Name) and performances by Black Diamond Express, The Sea is Salt and The Zorras.
Black Diamond Express – a rocking, hell-playing, old time string band.
The Sea is Salt – Original dreamy folk songs with a dark twist.
The Zorras – kicking their brand of “poetry-music fusion weirdness” with megaphones and a wicked loop pedal.
