Matt Harvey, poet and humorist Friday 28 February 7:30pm
Writer, poet, envy of all that’s difficult and upsetting, Matt’s way with words has taken him from Totnes to the Wimbledon Tennis Championships via Radio 4’s Saturday Live, the Edinburgh Festival and writing for the Guardian.
He is host of Radio 4’s Wondermentalist Cabaret, creator of Empath Man and author of The Hole in the Sum of my Parts, Where Earwigs Dare and Mindless Body Spineless Mind.
He now turns his hilarious gaze on to the world of dogs and their owners.
"Vocalist Julie Dunn sings a variety of well loved jazz tunes, influenced by the great jazz singers such as Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan and the Great American Song Book.
She has released four CDs, playing alongside Johnny Dankworth’s son Alec, and she has toured the country playing in prestigious venues such as the Vortex and the 606 Club in London. She has garnered widespread acclaim in the press, with Chris Parker describing her as “a class act – warm, compelling…impeccable” and Muse Magazine praising her as a “soulful jazz songstress who effortlessly sings in her distinctively rich and smooth vocal style.”
Backing Julie in her quintet are Ben Waghorn on saxophone and flute, PhilipClouts at the piano, Mike Thorn on double bass and Quinny Lawrence playing the drums."
