Poetry Café: Carly Brown and Joe with the Glasses

Thursday 7 March, 13:00 - 13:50
Byre Theatre, Abbey Street - Studio Theatre

Lively poetry from two of the best poets to emerge from Scotland’s spoken word scene, served up with a lunchtime snack

Loud, funny, and personal. Savour your lunch (included in the ticket price) with the additional spice of exceptional poetry from two leading poets to emerge from Scotland’s spoken word scene. A former poet in residence for the National Black Theatre, Joe with the Glasses is known for his hard-hitting poems which are lyrically crafted with a strong sense of musicality. He’ll be sharing the stage with award-winning writer and performer Carly Brown, whose 2013 win at the StAnza slam sent her, via the Scottish national slam championships, to the world series in Paris. Come prepared to laugh out loud and consider new perspectives in the first Poetry Café event at StAnza 2019.
