About This Event

Georgia Mann presents informal late-night music and poetry, featuring emerging talent.

Poet: Holly Corfield Carr
Holly Corfield Carr has been commissioned to write poems for a passenger ferry, a car park, a floating island in the Bristol Channel, the underground river Frome, a tour of Portland stone in Hackney and the former Spode factory works in Stoke-on-Trent. Her poem for an eighteenth-century crystal grotto was performed in the grotto for audiences of six people at a time and has been published as a pamphlet by the art gallery Spike Island. She received an Eric Gregory Award from the Society of Authors in 2012 and won the Frieze Writer’s Prize in 2015. She recently featured in BBC Radio 4’s How to Write a Poem and she is currently a PhD student at the University of Cambridge where she is researching site-specific poetry and sculpture.

Musicians: Snowpoet
‘Snowpoet’s eponymous debut album is an ethereal, psychedelic, and magical combination of lyrical, nature inspired poetry and modern innovative folk music that incorporates a shimmering acoustic instrumentation, and near-classical/post-rock inspirations.’ (Folk Radio). The London-based group was born out of a musical friendship and understanding and fusing together the writing duo of Jazz FM Vocalist of the Year Lauren Kinsella and composer / multi-instrumentalist Chris Hyson, Snowpoet bring melody, form and text to a new setting. Inspired in equal parts by artists such as Bjork, Joni Mitchell, EE Cummings,Tom Waits, Ólöf Arnalds and John Cage, the group explores the beauty of original composition and song form in all its complexity.
