Poet, novelist, songwriter, instrumentalist and singer, Louis de Bernieres has always combined words and music.  In a special evening he performs his own songs alongside his poems.  A natural story-teller, his poems and song lyrics are packed with the same memorable turns of phrase and whimsical flights of imagination as his fiction –  “every [song] a novella in its own right” as described in a Folk/Tumble review.  Playing a variety of instruments – as he says, “making sense of anything with frets and strings, including of course the mandolin” – it promises an evening of richly evocative music-making. 

“…a double album made with relish and passion. Bernières’ voice cuts through darkly arresting vignettes full of evocative lyrics. Powerful stuff…”Mojo Magazine
