Edward Capern composed poetry and songs whilst walking the Devon lanes on his post round in the nineteenth century. Author Liz Shakespeare has published a novel, The Postman Poet, based on his life and collaborated with musicians Nick Wyle and Becki Driscoll, resulting in a CD The Songs of Edward Capern. All three will bring Capern vividly back to life with this delightfully vibrant entertainment of words and music followed by a super supper.
