Stablemates – Ledbury

Jill Abram presents Stablemates, a poetry salon with Roger Robinson, Nick Makoha and Seni Seneviratne from Peepal Tree Press.

Roger Robinson is a dub poet writing songs about common people and their plight.  He co-founded Malika’s Poetry Kitchen and King Midas Sound.  Decibel chose him as one of 50 writers who have influenced the black-British writing canon over the past 50 years.

Nick Makoha is Forward Prize nominated.  He won the 2016 Toi Derricotte & Cornelius Eady Chapbook Prize and the Brunel African Poetry Prize in 2015.  He toured the UK with his solo show My Father & Other Superheroes.

Seni Seneviratne’s performances are a delicate mix of spoken word and folk/jazz song.  She likes to change hearts as well as minds through the medium of poetry.

Peepal Tree aims to bring you the very best of international writing from the Caribbean, its diasporas and the UK.
