Roger McGough + LiTTLe MACHiNe will perform at JAGs on Monday 22nd May at 7pm. This new show with Walter, Steve & Chris of LiTTLe MACHiNe features a fine selection of vintage, classic & surprising poems set to music. It’s a gala gig that’s making waves!
Hilarious and surreal, McGough is a poet of many voices. Menace and melancholy there may be, but with plenty of McGough’s characteristic wit and wordplay too. Formed in 2009, LiTTLe MACHiNe set classic poems to music and perform them with energy, passion and humour. It’s poety but not like you’ve heard or seen it before.
‘LiTTLe MACHiNe’s sophisticated way with poetry made me fall in love with old and new favourites all over again. They make you laugh and break your heart.’ Gillian Clarke
A book signing will follow the performance (in conjunction with Village Books) For more info on Roger McGough + LiTTLe MACHiNe visit www.uktouring.org.uk
