An Evening of Poetry, Music and Wine with Steve Day and Mark Langford
August 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm£10.00
This is a unique and exciting opportunity to hear Steve Day (poet) and Mark Langford (bass clarinet) perform an evening of poetry and music among the vines of Limeburn Hill Vineyard near Bristol.
Steve is a writer, poet and percussionist, and among the few independent British jazz writers to be quoted in the definitive Penguin Guide To Jazz. Mark plays reeds and keyboards, and composes, and was a founder member of Bristol Music Coop, a catalyst for free improvised music in the South West. Both Steve and Mark are members of Blazing Flame Quintet.
The performance will take place within a natural amphitheatre in the heart of the vineyard, surrounded by vines. The evening will begin with an introduction to the vineyard by winemaker Robin Snowdon, followed by a tasting of Limeburn Hill Vineyard’s three 2018 Biodynamic Pétillant Naturel wines – Beltain (a white sparkling), Lammas ( a rose sparkling) and Samhain ( a red sparkling). These are the only biodynamic natural wines produced in the south west of England so this is an opportunity not to be missed. This will be followed by the performance as the sun sets over the Chew Valley.
There will be an opportunity to buy glasses of wine, organic apple juice from the farm and simple refreshments throughout the evening, using cash or card.
Parking will be available in the field next to the vineyard. Seating will be on straw bales. Please wear clothing and shoes suitable for a farm landscape. A picnic blanket may be useful if it becomes chilly. Should it rain, we will decamp to the barn, with an opportunity for a quick visit to the vineyard.
It should be the most amazing evening – listening to Steve’s poetry and Mark’s soundscapes drifting through the vineyard and the Chew Valley. We hope to see you there.
Tickets available on Eventbrite.
