Poetry from Peter Daniels and Leah Fritz. Music from Liz Simcock.
Peter Daniels has published pamphlets with HappenStance and Smith Doorstop; his first full collection is Counting Eggs (Mulfran, 2012). His translations of Vladislav Khodasevich from Russian are due from Angel Books in 2013.
In May, 2012, Salmon brought out Whatever Sends the Music into Time: New and Selected Poems, by Leah Fritz. Christopher Middleton has written, ‘Leah Fritz’s poetry is always enjoyable for its intelligence, wit, satirical sting and freshness of wording.’ Helena Nelson said in Ambit, ‘It’s a pleasure to move inside the swing of her metrical lines and careful patterning, and it always feels like poetry that’s going on – art, but not artificial.’
Liz Simcock writes songs and performs them in folk and acoustic clubs in and around the Southeast. In 1999 she featured on the Playpen Album of New Acoustic Music alongside Eliza Carthy, Billy Bragg, Eddi Reader and Kathryn Williams. Since then she has trodden an independent path, recording two albums and gaining a growing reputation as a performer. When not appearing alone Liz shares the stage with Warwick Jones (guitar) and Ian Newman (bass). She appeared regularly at fourth friday’s forerunner Poetry and Jazz. “Liz is a great songwriter and gorgeous singer with a relaxed and very endearing stage presence “ (Hitchin Folk Club)
