CALLED BACK : music and words inspired by the poetry and letters of EMILY DICKINSON.

FRIDAY 6th October at 8pm at the Granary.

Emily Dickinson's enigmatic and brilliant poetry was largely unread and unpublished during her lifetime but she is now considered one of America's greatest and most original poets. John Hinshelwood's sensitive musical interpretations based on a selection of her poetry, accompanied by words read from her letters open a window on the life and work of this remarkable woman and the passions and preoccupations which she poured into her writing. Music: The John Hinshelwood Band featuring John Hinshelwood, Tim Black and Ed McGlone; Words: Fiona Wellstood.

Doors open at 7.30pm and seating is unreserved so arrive in plenty of time to claim the best spot. Tickets £10 from Eventbrite
