Join actor Ruth Sillers & Jane Harris, Director of Songways for a special evening of words & music LIVE on Zoom
A rich programme of poetry & prose read by Ruth, from Jane Austen to Rudyard Kipling, Walt Whitman to William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson to Kenneth Grahame. In turn heart-warming, exquisite, evocative, poignant and funny.
Ruth’s spoken word will be woven together with Jane’s beautiful song, Layer upon layer of memories, which brings a deep sense of stillness and peace. Sing with Jane’s voice live & with studio quality recordings, gradually adding layers of harmony. Jane will also be playing violin live.
