A Night of Poetry and Music

Thursday 22nd November

7.30pm

We’re excited to confirm that our Poetry and Musical evenings are making a return this Autumn.

The second of these events will take place on Thursday 22nd November. We’ll be hosting a Poetry + Music evening with Lowri Evans & Lee Mason and Susan Richardson.

Lowri Evans & Lee Mason have 10 years experience writing, recording, producing and performing music together and their musical presence as a duo is firmly established within the music scene. Performing an average of 50 shows a year, they appear on S4C programmes on a regular basis and their music is regularly played on BBC Radio Cymru and BBC Radio Wales. Their 3rd English language album ‘Corner of my eye’ received fantastic reviews with a 5* review from Rock ‘n’ Reel (R2) quoting – “Lowri Evans has surely cut one of the albums of this or any other year. It’s simply a dream”. In June 2014 Lowri and her band were invited to record a session for legendary DJ/television presenter Bob Harris. “Two of my absolute favourite artists” – Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2.

Since 2006, Lowri and Lee have performed at many UK festivals including, amongst others, Wychwood Festival, Sesiwn Fawr Dolgellau, The Acoustic Festival of Britain, The Small Nations Festival, Broadstairs Folk Festival.  In April 2014 Lowri and Lee did their first tour of America, playing venues in Chicago, Elkhart and Madison in Indiana and Nashville where they were enormously well received.
