Take A Look At This…

A good friend of mine, Heather, whom I haven’t seen in far too long, says ‘I have performed this piece so many times now! Getting on for 40 this year alone. Here is the original recorded version by request. The live performance has developed and I take more time over it now – CRT commissioned a 6-minute piece and it turned out to be exactly that length without me having to edit it. It’s good to hear the real Emma and Nancy, and the lovely engines I recorded, and see photos of some of the ‘Idle Women’. The next time I perform it will be at the Barley Mow, Newbold on Monday. See www.alarumtheatre.co.uk for the remaining tour dates.’

Watch this YouTube of the poem, it’s amazing!

Croome Poetry Project—Heather Wastie

Sadly, the Mixcloud video, which was published when I first wrote this post, is no longer available, it was at: https://www.mixcloud.com/Apples_and_Snakes/home-cooking-poets-at-croome-by-heather-wastie/ but I cannot access it any more 😦

I was  thrilled to be part of this project. With many thanks to Heather Wastie, Apples & Snakes, and all my fab poetry friends.
