A bit more about what's in store:
Lisa Luxx & The 4th Brain:
A musical and poetic journey that searches for connection in the modern day. Exploring the role of the web in the new landscape of politics, society and spirituality.
Accompanied by the music of multi-instrumentalist Rico.
“In a world full of safe, mortage-paying lifestyles it came as a relief and a thrill to hear Lisa Luxx’s vision of the present and the future.” - Stephanie Theobald, The Guardian
“Lisa Luxx is phenomenal, a poet of guts and heart, she is alive with fire and truth. Her poetry always makes me wish people would wake up, for it is a fact listening to her I’m reminded how much we’ve all been sleeping. These are the songs we sing when we are brave, when we have our eyes open, this work will be remembered long after we are all gone.” - Salena Godden
"Blazing bright, razor-sharp, Lisa Luxx dazzles with wild wit and fierce passion." - Jake Arnott
Genevieve Carver & The Unsung:
You’ve heard of Kurt Cobain. You’ve heard of Jim Morrison. But have you heard of Scott Johnson, or Lina Prokofiev? The Unsung is a raucous funeral party for the dead musicians you've never heard of. A journey in spoken word and music from Sheffield poet Genevieve Carver and her live band Sarah Sharp, Tim Knowles and Brian Bestall, The Unsung takes you on a whirlwind tour around the world exploring how music has shattered the lives of those who’ve loved it most.
