“Mine” (or “O Mine Papa”) and 2 Guest Poet appearances coming up in early June.

I was lucky enough to be at the Dog and Partridge, Bollington, on Friday 26th. May for Bob Fox’s guest singer night. He’s an accomplished guitarist with an excellent voice, very much at home on the stage and  very entertaining and well worth a detour. (He was “The Songman” in “Warhorse” and will be again soon at the Lowry). He’s from a mining village in the North-East which immediately took me back to Mansfield Woodhouse and our local Nottinghamshire pits. Bob is one of “The Pitmen Poets” and reminded me that we’re both the first generation not to “go down t’pit”, though he does earn his living singing about it! It prompted me to have a go at writing a folk song (“The Folk Song with No Tune?”). I’ll post it separately after the commercial break.

As it happens, I’ve a couple of 10 minute slots as Guest Poet coming up myself at 2 open mike events locally. Both are free entry (but a fiver to get out – JOKE!). Come along and read something of your own or by AN Other or just come and listen.

    I’ll certainly be there in Stockport, and if possible I’ll come to Poynton too!
