Music & Spoken Word: We Really Existed and We Really Did This
19 Apr 2019 7pm
Join us for a musical and spoken-word performance with David Benjamin Blower, who takes us on an apocalyptic folk odyssey through our unstable present. His songs and readings are a meditation about the time between a waning past and our potentially catastrophic future.
David creates a space for lamenting endings, loss and collapse, where a growing awareness of the ecological crisis we’ve triggered opens out into melancholic wonder at our very existence.
He is joined by support act Jasmine Kennedy, an acoustic singer songwriter who blends throwaway observations with bittersweet tales to create her quietly contemplative music.
All money raised through this event will support the development of Left Bank Leeds Charitable Trust, (charity no. 1146734).
