Further From Festival, Linlithgow Fri 10th Feb I'll be doing a 1 hour poem, prose and music performance reading with my friend Rachel Newton. She is a truly lovely singer, fiddler and plays a heart-rippling clarsach. I expect to be doing poems from the micro-epic open boat voyage into Scapa Flow, 'Found At Sea', and passages from my Border Reivers novel 'FAIR HELEN', augmented by her music and singing. Rachel will be doing her own thing too, plus we'll do a song or two together. A banjo may come into it.
