The Met welcomes poet Ian McMillan and his orchestra, who come to Bury on Friday 8 April at 8pm.
\’The John Peel of poetry\’ Alec Finlay
A steaming, pulsing collection of songs and musically illuminated stories come home to roost. Here be tales of family, longing, love & long histories. Told by an Orchestra, ring-mastered by Luke Carver Goss and whirlingly dervished by Barnsley poet Ian McMillan.
\”An unlikely meeting of poetry, prose and folk music.\” The Sunday Times
Poet, comedian & broadcaster Ian McMillan hosts weekly hit radio show The Verb. He\’s Yorkshire Planetarium\’s Poet in Space, Poet-in-Residence for The Academy of Urbanism and Barnsley FC, Humberside Police\’s Beat Poet, Yorkshire TV\’s Investigative poet and a regular on Newsnight Review, The Mark Radcliffe Show, The Today Programme, You & Yours, The Culture Show, Never Mind The Full Stops… and Have I Got News For You? His rip-roaring poetry shows are legendary. Cats make him sneeze.
