To celebrate the publication of Soho (Faber & Faber, 2018), Matthew Hollis, guitar, and Richard Scott, countertenor, will be performing music by John Dowland, Jolie Holland and Luke Kelly, with texts by W. B. Yeats and Patrick Kavanagh. Interspersing music with his own poetry, Richard will also be reading from Soho, and, together with Matthew, discussing how poetry and music are intertwined through rhythm, cadence and feeling.
