On Wednesday 9th January, I'm performing as one of the featured poets at the Hammer & Tongue Slam in Cambridge. I'm really nervous because I'll be supporting Steve Larkin, the headline act for the evening and the man who invented Hammer & Tongue!
is an amazing entertain, who never fails to entertain a crowd. He's an internationally respected spoken word artist, poet and performer, as well as the front man for cabaret ska band Inflatable Buddha and a lecturer in creative writing, storytelling and performance poetry. He won the International
Poetry Slam Champions in 2004, and has been a firm favourite on the spoken word and fringe festival circuit ever since. He's performed at shows across the globe and his poetry is funny, engaging and thought-provoking.
Basically, you need to come see him perform.
It's so cool to be invited to participate in Hammer & Tongue as a featured artist, I really hope I can do it justice and keep up with the incredible wit of Steve Larkin and the Hamer & Tongue Slammers. I'm even considering previewing some new material on the night, so it should be an interesting performance. If you're in Cambridge on Wednesday night, why not come along? You can order your tickets in advance from Eventbrite, or just show up and pay on the door.
It'd be awesome to see you all there!
