Forest Publications presents …
The Golden Hour is a literary cabaret which has played to sold-out audiences at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It is poetry, prose, and original eclectic songs. It is physical and mental. It is a reading. It is a gig. It is a party.

billyliarEricka Duffy – hot new prose from her hot new chapbook called Succubus!

Jason Morton – stories that can eat bricks.

Ryan Van Winkle – little poems and long stories from the Reader in Residence at the Scottish Poetry Library.


Jane Flett – seamstress of most fetching stories.


Billy Liar – Acoustic + infectious punk.

Hailey Beavis – subtle guitar, a bed for a voice, both personal and touching.

Jed Milroy – singer songwriter and hunter finally back from the Woods.

Withered Hand – intense, eccentric, bitter-sweet and very wry original songs.

This tour has been generously supported by the Scottish Arts Council.
