The Poem and The Song

Catch The Poem and The Song @ Knutsford Methodist Church*
Friday 21st June from 7.30pm

A performance from Michael Gibson for Knutsford Music Festival 2019.

This show presents thirteen centuries of English poetry and song stripped won to its rhythmic essentials – ‘Beowulf’s Boxershorts’.

It will include The First English poem-song ever; a Rude Riddle; a Lament for a Warrior; a song by Cnut; a song about the English Weather; a pagan May-Song; a Minstrel’s song about girls and football (and girls); an Ale song; a Cure for a Hangover and upwards to a 21st century song about Cnut – all laced with tunes on an Anglo-Saxon lyre and wooden pipe.

Knutsfordians don’t want to miss this extravaganza of local heritage.
