Don Paterson and Graeme Stephen

Join Don Paterson and Graeme Stephen for a uniquely exciting evening of poetry and jazz. Don will read from his new and recent work, including Zonal – poems based around Season 1 of The Twilight Zone – and join top Scottish guitarist and composer Stephen in a guitar duo, covering everything from original composition to jazz standards, Scottish traditional tunes and the plain mental. 

‘Dynamic, interrogative and unsettling; crafted yet open-ended; fiercely smart, savage and stirring from the get-go, Paterson’s poetry has been essential reading’ Guardian

‘Stephen's music speaks loudly of ambition, imagination, nous, and harmonic adventure … the sort of tuneful realisation that swells the heart’ The Herald
