Litro Live! at Gaymer’s Camden Crawl

an evening of storytelling and music

 

SUNDAY MAY 2nd, 12pm-7pm

@ The Edinboro Castle, Camden, NW1 7RU

Litro Magazine, London’s leading free short story magazine, brings together a combustive mix of leftfield literary and musical talent, established and new, for a cider-sponsored springtime celebration of the free spirit of words and music…

Garth Cartwright, award-winning journalist and acclaimed music writer, will be talking us through his latest work, More Miles than Money, an epic trek through the backwoods of America to rediscover the roots music – blues and country, folk and soul – that he loves, accompanied by Brixton-born blues man Errol Linton on the blues harp.

Philip Wilding, co-presenter with Phil Jupitus of the BBC6 Music Breakfast Show and multi-talented journalist and writer, will be reading selections from his contemporary noir debut novel, Cross Country Murder Song – published to rave reviews in February 2010.

Bestselling music biographer Chris Salewicz will be bringing to life a legendary and enigmatic figure like never before, with a selection of readings from his impeccably researched book, Bob Marley: The Untold Story, followed by a Q&A session.

Later on, special guest DJ 10SUi aka Tracie Storey the ‘First Lady of Breaks,’ will be tantalising the audience with her fine vinyl and turntable trickery.

Ana Silvera – named recently as ‘a major talent in the offing’ (Music Week) – will be singing songs from her first studio album – contemporary and alternative with a lush, intimate sound that is fast gaining recognition among discerning critics and fans alike.

Finally, south London trio Mad Dog will be playing a high-tempo set of underground rock. Finalists of the Battle of the Bands competition in 2007, they have a taut, intelligent, classic blues power-rock sound that is at once classic and completely their own.
