Dan Willson (Withered Hand) – image by Jannica Honey
A set of beautifully executed songs from one of Scotland’s most gifted songwriters. Described as ‘The UK’s best lyricist’ by King Creosote in The Independent, Dan’s live solo performances are fragile, beautiful and uplifting.
“Endlessly loveable stuff” NME
A poet, playwright and performer known for her innovative explorations of form, voice and language in performance, her work explores a wide range of subjects: from political rhetoric (Opposition) to paranormal science (Total Man), teenage sexual identity (Orchid) to long distance running (Marathon Tales). Her current performance, Schlock!, is a meditation on pain, the body and the self, consent, complicity and ownership.
“One of the most ambitious and entertaining poets in the country” (The Times)
Ryan Van Winkle
Ryan’s critically praised first collection, Tomorrow, We Will Live Here, was published by Salt in 2010 and won the Crashaw Prize. A forthcoming second collection is forthcoming from Penned in the Margins. An Edinburgh-based poet and live-artist, Ryan has toured nationally and internationally including at the Erbil Literature Festival in Iraq; as part of the Auld Enemies tour, and the Wordstorm Festival in Darwin.
