Sladers Yard is pleased to be one of the venues for the Bridport Literary Festival 2015
A History of 3000 years of poetry set to song
Featuring: singer/guitarist Walter Wray,
multi-instrumentalist, poet/composer Steve Halliwell
poet/musician Chris Hardy
To bring this year’s Bridlit to a resounding conclusion, we have invited the brilliant LiTTLe MACHiNe band to entertain us all with their music and poetry.
Poems, classic and obscure are given a new voice in songs crafted by three extraordinarily talented musicians. Acoustic instruments, strong melodies and watertight harmonies create songs that draw upon a thousand years of poetry from the Medieval to the Metaphysical, the Romantic to the Modern including Homer, Chaucer, Shakespeare, Milton, Byron, Shelley, Coleridge, Betjeman, Yeats and Carol Ann Duffy. LiTTLe MACHiNe will present a history of poetry in a way which will both make you laugh and break your heart..
