    “Energetic” Poetry Readings

    10.30am – 12.30pm

    Part of a Wales-wide week of action on Climate Change

    I shall be playing a few vaguely relevant tunes along side the poets to support this awareness campaign on Holywell High Street.


    Nobody likes to think about it - but our traditional ways of using energy are dangerously over-heating the climate, already causing untold chaos.....
    Is “homegrown” renewable energy “Pie in the Sky”?  or the obvious way ahead?
    Come along and listen to some pithy poems on the subject! (Cover and seating available). There will also be a “Warm Homes” stall with expert advice on energy saving and renewables.

BIOGRAPHY

I am The Boy With The Greyhound Tattoo. Hello there!

I take a vocal microphone, soprano uke and bass guitar and plug them into my looper to crank out an eclectic mix of my own songs and interesting cover versions. I sometimes mix a synthesizer, piano and percussion into the mix too!

My instruments of choice are a Dave Morgan Soprano (MiSi), Magic Fluke Flea, a Höfner Shorty bass guitar, an AKG D5 vocal mic and a pedal board to pull it all together.

I also write a ukulele music reviews website called Uke Planet and am a regular writer for UKE Magazine.

I’m also actively involved in some other musical projects including Fake Plastic Tigers & Hobbelpaard.

In past musical lives I played bass with flippin’ fabulous Twin Hazey, sang a few backing vocals for Suggs and fluffed my way through a music degree.
