Salt Benefit Gig

Big thanks to Kevin Cadwallender for organising a benefit reading for Salt last Thursday evening at the wonderful Out Of The Blue centre. It was a fantastic space, maybe a shade big for this reading, but I hope it can be utilized as a venue for future literary events.

Alexander Hutchison and I were the Salt poets on show (Andrew Philip was waiting for his wife to give birth. It finally happened yesterday. They have a new daughter – Cerys Ilona – so big congratulations to them!). We were joined by poets published (or forthcoming) by Red Squirrel Press. It was a shame that the audience wasn’t bigger, but the evening was still very enjoyable and did make some money for Salt.

My set-list:

1. “He is between sandwiches…”
2. One Way To Be A Catholic
3. Everyone Will Go Crazy
4. Hospital
5. The Scuffle
