Really looking forward to this:
Toiling down the art mines, Pen:Chant taps the seams of spoken word, comedy, live music, performance and everything in between. Unearthing gems from Manchester, the UK and the world to make your hearts and minds sparkle!
This month, we present a special show in beautiful pop-up theatre-in-the-round space, Roundabout. Presented by The Lowry as part of the Roundabout in Little Hulton season featuring:
** Side-splitting word-slinger and one man superlative magnet Byron Vincent!**
Frequently found on your radio-waves and your telly-box (BBC R4, R3, Channel 4 etc.) Byron’s writing and performance is as socially and politically incisive as it is visciously funny.
** Spell-bindingly evocative singer-songwriter Zoe Kyoti! **
Based in Manchester but born of Anglo-Austrian- Greek-Armenian heritage, Zoe’s unique brand of bittersweet folk, is laced with the spice of exotic far-flung places and the roots of jazz, country and blues.
** Powerfully political yet pleasingly personable poet Reece Williams!**
As a member of Young Identity and Inna Voice, Reece has performed alongside Linton Kwesi Johnson, Jean Binta Breeze, Saul Williams, Kate Tempest and The Last Poets. He is currently working on an EP to be released in 2017 on Griot City (a new Independent Record Label he is launching) and a collection of poetry to be released in 2018.
