A bit about the performers:

Having worked for 15 years as a newspaper reporter across England and South Africa, Cato Pedder is a highly accomplished poet, and has poetical works published in magazines and anthologies such as Mslexia and Wasafiri, alongside a work of narrative non-fiction about the Afrikaners.

David Punter has published eight poetry collections; his next one, Ship’s Log, is due out later this year. He has a website, david-punter.org, featuring some of his poetry past and current, go check it out!

Maaike Siegerist will be performing sunny jazz songs from her new album, Little Dutch Songbook. With “a voice smoother than Dutch chocolate,” she blends classic jazz with a bit of Tom Waits. The songs tell of cider-fuelled nights at The Old Duke, take you to New York and China, and celebrate legends like Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. With groovy keys by Jonni Slater.
