Carol Ann Duffy and LiTTLe MACHiNe
Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy opens our 60th Poetry Festival.
30 June 2013
We are delighted to welcome Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy who will open this year's Stratford-upon-Avon Poetry Festival.
She will be reading from her own work and be joined by the band LiTTLe MACHiNe who brilliantly give poems a new voice through their own musical settings. Accoustic instruments, strong melodies and perfect harmonies create songs that draw on a thousand years of poetry from the Medieval to the Metaphysicals, the Romantics to the modern. William Carlos Williams, Blake, Shakespeare, Carol Ann Duffy and more.....all get the treatment.
Venue: Queen Elizabeth Hall, The Shakespeare Centre, Henley Street
