Poetry into Song

Gareth Owen

‘…original, beautiful, serious, funny, real - Nothing quite like has been done before’ said the critics when Owen’s first volume, Salford Road saw the light of day. A consummate reader of both his own and other writers’ works, Gareth will be performing poems from his latest collection: Icarus by mobile.


In addition, in order to illustrate the similarities and differences between a poem and a song lyric, he will be singing a selection of songs from his new Country Album, Rolling by. In this he will be assisted by guitarist and fellow song-writer, Martin Thomas.
