The Sip Club is a cosy little venue and the lovely Heather – owner/manager – was once again happy for We4Poets to try out new songs, poems and stories to a warm and select audience.
An evening compered by singer/songwriter Tez Skachill saw writers Paul Clarke and Spug tell new tales, while poets Kat Kehoe and Tricia Ashworth delivered perfect words with perfect timing. In utterly different and mesmerising ways, Stan Ayodeji and Michael Kyriacou expertly melded prose with verse before David Llewellyn hit new notes – and a deserved ovation – with a rare musical number. Alex Aspden … was simply astounding.
But if there was a single highlight it would have to be our first ever Open Mic spot when Phoebe Stevenson – one of the North West’s youngest and most accomplished writers – delivered two unforgettable and original poems.
The evening was wrapped up by We4Poets own Tez Skachill playing songs from his eagerly awaited forthcoming EP. Watch this space.
