Join Otley Town Poet Matthew Hedley Stoppard for the launch of his poetry collection The Garland King, alongside acclaimed singer Stephanie Hladowski, BBC Folk Award-nominated duo Louis Campbell and Owen Spafford, and Border Morris side Wharfedale Wayzgoose. The evening will be a celebration of British folk culture, featuring seasonal songs, contemporary poetry, evocative instrumental music and lively traditional tunes.

Praise for Matthew’s poetry:

“I love the unusual combinations of phrase, the constantly shifting and startling imagery, and the depiction of ordinary lives and imaginary moments with genuine vigour.” Daljit Nagra

Stephanie’s album ‘The Wild, Wild Berry’ was an editor’s choice in fRoots Magazine and she has shared stages with Shirley Collins and Martin Carthy.

Praise for Campbell and Spafford:

“Their skill and musicianship is staggering – one of the most promising duos I’ve ever seen!” Sam Sweeney (Bellowhead, Leveret)
