I am delighted to announce that I will be performing at The Wigan Diggers Festival on Sept 8th 2018.
The festival which commemorates Gerrard Winstanley, pioneering socialist thinker (before the term was coined) and leader of the 17th Century Diggers movement, is celebrating its 8th year on 8th September (some kind of serendipity?) and continues to grow and flourish. The full line up includes a wide range of music and spoken word including:
- The Blockheads
- Merry Hell
- Barnstormer 1649 (featuring Attila The Stockbroker)
- The Commoners’ Choir
- Joe Solo
- Bard Company
- Patrick McKenzie
- The Amber List
- Gerry Ffrench
- Jupiter Hollow Blues Band
The poetry slot is at 2.50pm when I will be performing alongside three other poets (details to be announced shortly) so expect to hear words and rhythms that will shake the cobwebs of your social consciences.
There will also be a range of other activities including entertainment for children, a range of stalls and of course there will be plenty of food and drink.
