Bridport Literary Festival 2018

The Glass Aisle: Poems and Songs with Paul Henry & Brian Briggs

Date & Time: Sunday 11 November at 12 noon

Venue: Sladers Yard, West Bay Road, West Bay, Bridport DT6 4EL

Tickets: £15.00 or £35.00 with lunch

Tickets are non refundable

Set on a stretch of the Monmouthshire – Brecon Canal, this stunning long poem with songs is a collaboration between two major talents in poetry and music: poet Paul Henry and singer-songwriter and Stornaway front man Brian Briggs.
With songs composed ‘out of a poem’, and brought to life in Brian Briggs’ clear tenor voice, this work breaks down the borders between the poem and the song lyric while offering a timeless, affecting elegy to the displaced. Two presences loom in the poem: Marconi, who conducted his experiments for radio on this particular part of the canal, and an old union workhouse now converted into houses.
The Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy writes: ‘In this virtuoso new collection Paul Henry, poacher-like, tracks the journeys of the heart through landscape, love and loss.’
