An Evening with MURRAY LACHLAN YOUNG
October 22: Pound Arts, Corsham, 8pm.
Prepare for an evening of satirical soliloquy, rock-n-roll reverie and ditty as BBC6 music resident poet Murray Lachlan Young presents his stunning new live up-close and personal show.
Murray’s shows are a delightful and satirical romp into the bizarre facets of fame, fashion, people, politics, a mild erotic folk ballad and the space-time continuum. This is unique stand up poetry/spoken word performance, from one of the very best in the business.
Murray heads out on tour drawing and performing material from his new hardback collection: How Freakin’ Zeitgeist Are You? along with much loved live favourites from BBC Radio.
Fresh from summer festival appearances at Glastonbury, WOMAD, Cornbury, and Port Eliot and Festival No 6, Murray kicks off October with a show at Pound Arts.
Murray said: “In peoples minds Corsham fits neatly into that group of towns known as the muesli underground. Places of liberal thought where the occasional chillum appears from a sarong. If you go to Womad Festival you can see them all in one field.
“I like Womad and I like Corsham. Occasionally, when visiting, I have to listen to AC/DC quite loud as an antidote but I’m OK with that and I know Corsham is too.”
Murray Lachlan Young is an acclaimed playwright, actor , screen-writer and poet -extraodinaire. Celebrated for his hybrid mix of stand-up comedy with delightful commentaries on the bizarreness of contemporary life, so expect flamboyant, punchy wit, brooding subtext and empathetic humour. Mick Jagger recently presented Keith Richards with a CD of Murray’s poem, marking the anniversary of Keith falling out of a coconut tree.
