A showcase triple-bill of poets who have travelled for their writing and written from their travels. Shetland poet Jen Hadfield won the 2008 T. S. Eliot Prize for a collection that came out of her Canadian explorations. Poet and raconteur Keith Armstrong comes to us from Whitley Bay, Tyne and Wear, but his cultural pilgrimages have taken him from Bulgaria to Iceland, from Cuba to Kenya. Infinite Equation No.2 is a two-piece ensemble combining John Mackie’s lyric and narrative poetry from forty five years of travelling and writing with the virtuoso guitar playing of Michael Moar.
