ON THE ROAD AGAIN!


POET GOES ON THE ROAD AGAIN

Whitley Bay based poet and publisher Keith Armstrong is heading for Tuebingen, Durham's twin city in South Germany, with singer-songwriter Gary Miller, of the Whisky Priest folk rock band, on Monday 18th March 
where they will perform in bars, cafes and schools with Tuebingen poets and musicians. 

Keith and Gary are also currently working on a double album to be launched in the autumn telling the story of the eighteenth century 'Mad Martins' family of Tynedale.

And a selection of Keith's recent poetry, with that of fellow poet Katrina Porteous, has just been released on a new album in the Czech Republic with settings by Jakub Zahradnik, a composer and keyboard player who Keith first met on an Arts Council funded literary visit to Prague a few years ago.

Literary activist Armstrong is currently working with Newcastle's Mining Institute on a series of projects and events and he is also involved in a jazz and poetry project with North Shields artist Peter Dixon which celebrates the great figures of jazz in a touring display and events programme.
