Michael Pedersen's Oyster Party for Scott Hutchison
Thu 16 Aug 18:30 — 20:00
Formerly titled 'Michael Pedersen' in our printed programme.
POWERFUL, PLAYFUL VERSE
Prize-winning poet and Neu! Reekie! co-founder, Michael Pedersen pays homage to a dear friend and Scottish hero recently lost: Frightened Rabbit frontman and artist Scott Hutchison. Pedersen and Hutchison launched the poet’s second collection Oyster, which Scott deftly illustrated, at the Book Festival last year and a sell-out UK and South Africa launch tour swiftly followed. Today’s event was planned with them both but has been reworked due to the sad loss of the talented Hutchison. Join Michael Pedersen and some of his and Hutchison's close friends: Hollie McNish, Withered Hand and E A Hanks as they perform their own work, share Scott shaped stories and raise an Oyster (or alternative) in the great one’s name.
