Roncadora at The Bakehouse

Saturday August 13th 2011
Rocadora poets read from their books introduced by publisher/artist Hugh who will talk briefly about the ideas and production of the pamphlets. Followed by a preview of Roncadora’s latest publication 1957 Flying Scot which centres around a crown of sonnets by Rab Wilson about a classic racing bike illustrated with linocuts by Hugh Bryden.

Two CDs incorporated feature Rab introducing and reading the sonnets and a specially commissioned suite of Jazz compositions by Ben Bryden. 1957 Flying Scot will be officially launched at Wigtown Book Festival in September with an exhibition and full performance of the music. For this special preview at the Bakehouse, Rab will read the sonnets with solo saxophone accompaniment by Ben. Special one-off, hand-coloured versions of pamphlets exclusively available on the night.
