We’re back, albeit belatedly, for 2014 with two shows that build on our reputation for bringing together music and speech to make a unique London night out.
On March 28th we proudly present an evening of close-quarters music and book talk featuring Ben Watt and winsome country duettists My Darling Clementine at the Slaughtered Lamb.
Ben will be talking to David Hepworth about Romany & Tom, his acclaimed new book about his musician parents. He describes it as “a true story of the post-war years, ambition and stardom, family roots and secrets, life in clubs and care homes. It’s also about who we are, where we come from and how we love and live with each other for a very long time”.
You can order it here or wait until the night when Ben will be signing copies.
My Darling Clementine, who have triumphed at Word In Your Ear in the past with their full band, will perform a special acoustic set as the band’s core duo of Michael Weston-King and Lou Dalgleish, featuring songs from their album The Reconciliation?. Selections from further afield that Michael and Lou have played in recent weeks include material by Gram Parsons, the Everly Brothers and Pete Seeger so you never know what else you might get.
This is an opportunity to enjoy some entertainment and education in a unique, spontaneous, never-to-be-repeated form, this time in the womb-like comfort of the downstairs lounge at the Slaughtered Lamb in historic Clerkenwell.
Tickets available here. We look forward to seeing you there.
We’re further delighted to announce that Mark Ellen‘s memoir Rock Stars Stole My Life will be published on May 12th and he’ll be talking to David Hepworth about it that very night, also at the Slaughtered Lamb. Tickets will be going on sale in due course but meanwhile save the date.
