Chandra - her brand of fire folk fit the start the kettle.
Massive Mellow - danceable, mellow groves, from the massive players.
Poor Edward - beautifully crafted songs and a guitar that can sound like a cello, a seagull, an elephant… anything you want.
Withered Hand - the wit-full, wistfull, sweet son-of-a-bitch. Who has a brand new album of his own y’all should buy.
Black Diamond Express - ‘are like the fastest train of the Lehigh Valley Railroad… a nine-piece band soaked in poetry, myth and bourbon.’ says Mark Edmundson of The List.
A launch to beat all book launches!
Come for one / come for both!
Blackwell is pleased to present an evening with the Golden Hour team, as they launch ‘The Golden Hour Book – Volume II’.
“Is the Golden Hour Book Suitable for You?”
If you enjoy words, the answer is ‘yes’. If you enjoy sounds, the answer is ‘yes’. Even if you have not answered ‘yes’, the answer is still ‘yes’. For ‘The Golden Hour Book Volume II’ is not just a book: it is also a natural resource that may save your life. Its pages will burn without being consumed. It keeps tigers away. The accompanying CD is equally essential: it can be used as a plate or better still, sharpened and thrown like a shuriken into the throat of your enemy. Even if the end approaches, there is still the consolation of the words and sounds within — fine poems, stories, and songs from over three dozen poets, writers and musicians — all of which are guaranteed to take your mind off things.
‘There is genuine wit, deep feeling and real entertainment in this most enjoyable volume. Light-hearted and serious by turns, ‘The Golden Hour Book Volume II’ contains some of the best and freshest new writing I have come across for quite a while.’
Ron Butlin, Edinburgh Makar
Joining us on for the launch are poets Alan Gillis, Aiko Harman, Julia Boll, Alan Jamieson and Andrew Philip.
