Cowboy poetry and culture.

Neil from the Arts group is inviting the group to this event. So if you are at a loose end on Saturday pop along. Lovely pub, great cakes !

On Saturday March 9th in the old barn of the Isis Tavern by Iffley lock on the River Thames, there will be a celebration of Cowboy poetry and culture. A campfire will be lit in the fields (weather permitting), a special 'chuck wagon' menu will be prepared, and advocates of North American prairie culture from Oxford and further afield will gather to pay homage to this distinctive rural tradition

Confirmed guests:

Ken Mitchell is a Canadian poet, novelist and playwright, raised on a rural farm outside the city of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan and well known for his literary works depicting prairie culture. his one-man drama about Norman Bethune, Gone the Burning Sun, won the CAA Best Canadian Play award in 1985. He currently writes and tours as a cowboy poet.

Matt Sage is an inspirational song maker and performer. As his former band-mates soared to stardom with Faithless and Dido, he moved onto a boat on the Oxford Canal and founded the now legendary Catweazle Club, Oxford's performance space for 'music, poetry, song and all manner of acoustic artistry' 'Lush and always inventive' – The Times

PETE JOSHUA: is a veteran acoustic musician, familiar to Catweazle audiences and open-mic aficionados, and one of Oxford's finest finger-style guitarists.

Moogieman: Moogieman’s songs have been described as ‘entropic’, ‘contagious’ and ‘deadpan panning of himself’. They are generally short and to the point.

James Bell: Isis Farmhouse troubadour James will be serving up some of his distinctively themed acoustic delights.

Also featuring:

American singer-songwriter-poet extraordinaire Claire Lemaster:
