We are back with our second Lazy Sunday event at The Old Queens Head in Islington. Expect a stimulating afternoon of talks, live music, poetry and an art display. The perfect way to spend your sunday afternoon in a great venue with pretty tasty roast lunches on offer, great tunes being played and the following...
Alix Fox, staff writer for Bizarre Magazine will be doing a talk on the trials and tribulations of working for the weird and wonderful Bizarre Mag.
Adam Green the author of our first publication Satsuma Sun-mover will be talking in the way that only Adam can about the creative writing process.
Jean Claud Madhero seeks to champion his unique sound, Creole music, using it as inspiration to create new and original cabaret style performances. The music and lyrics linger in the imaginations of his audiences long after they are heard.
Ben Moore, director of controversial Art Below will be talking about his recent antics displaying Banksy and Charles Bronson in ad spaces on the London underground.
Mat Lloyd, anti-poet and voice of the street will be performing some of his wilful verse and displaying his amazing videos created by animator Matt Frodsham.
Fleur De Lis, a 5 piece British folk/pop band. This charming band will serenade you with jingly yet dark folk tunes that take you back to thoughtful times. The Soaring Lead vocals and lyrics come from the 18 year old Bleu Mae - Who is known for her feisty pop ways, diva performances and now she's gaining respect for her calming and delicately beautiful vocals. NME have sited her as the New Johnny Cash meets Florence and the Machine. Radio 1 have said she's the one to watch for 2011.
Comedy writer-performer Kerry Gilbert is a regular on the London comedy circuit where she specialises in her own distinctive brand of dark observational humour and oddball characters. She has performed in Steve Oram's Edinburgh comedy show "Denim", where she sang a sad song about waiting for her Dad in BHS cafe whilst spreading baked beans on her face, and has appeared in various TV shows including Tittybangbang, Comedy Shuffle and Hotel Trubble, where she played Les Dennis's magician's assistant 'Claire'!
