The Silent Weaver

The extraordinary Life and Work of Angus MacPhee told in prose, poetry and film
Roger Hutchinson with Chrys Salt, and a film by Joanne B Kaar


Award winning author and journalist, Roger Hutchinson traces the life of a remarkable man in a rich, moving and enthralling explanation of mental health, the creative process, human frailty and ancient traditions. His reading will be counterpointed by a reading of Chrys Salt’s poem Angus MacPhee, Weaver of Grass, the centre-piece of her forthcoming collection.

“This is a story which will stay with me for a long time and Roger Hutchinson has done his subject proud.” - Press and Journal  
“A fascinating, poignant read” - The Scotsman
