“From Eight till Late”
Lee has been asked to perform some of his songs in support of an evening of poetry at this T-Junction festival event, celebrating the work of eight international poets – a real testament to the quality of his lyrics. I’m delighted to have the opportunity to go along and play fiddle alongside him. It promises to be a truly wonderful and inspiring event – do come and support.
Eight T-junction poets – Lev Rubenstein, Justyna Bargielska, Abdulkareem Kasid, Chawki Abdelamir, Aurélia Lassaque, Gerður Kristný, Eric Motswasele and Bejan Matur – take to the stage at mima for what promises to be an unforgettable evening of poetry from Russia, Poland, Iraq, France, Iceland, Botswana and Turkey. Plus music from Lee Maddison & Stewart Hardy.
We are excited to be heading to Udine in the north-east corner of Italy for Folkest 2018. We have three concerts, two of which are double headers with Ashcroft – two very talented young men, who just also happen to be Frank’s sons. They certainly push us to up our game whilst pushing us down the billing, as can be seen from the poster (not bitter and ego not fragile!) But it has been a delight to work on material for the four of us.
