Duo to perform at New Mills

Following a scintillating first half of funny poetry, music, songs and anecdotes, McMillan and Goss present a hilarious improvised musical based on local village legends, gossip and notorious village residents, as suggested by the audience.

All is fair game as the community becomes the star of this made-up-on-the-spot musical skit.

Ian McMillan is one of the UK’s best known contemporary poets. He hosts hit weekly show The Verb on BBC Radio 3, dedicated to investigating spoken words around the globe. He also maintains a breath-taking schedule of appearances in schools, prisons and arts festivals.

Luke Goss is an accordionist and composer who performs and broadcasts with the Southern European folk group Szapora and with masterful theatrical storytellers The Devil’s Violin.

The duo are performing at Spring Bank Arts Centre in New Mills on December 9 at 7.30pm. Tickets are available from 01663 308202, High Street Books New Mills and http://www.wegottickets.com
