Golden Bay Live Poets presents Iain Sharp

Thursday 21st September 2017

The Live Poets evening kicks off with live music from Galanjah and an open mic session follows. Nationally renowned poet Iain Sharp takes the stage around 8:15 pm.

Iain Sharp, born in Glasgow, appeared in Essential New Zealand Poems and other anthologies and has published five poetry books. He is a former editor of Landfall literary magazine.

Alan De Boeck was born in Belgium and settled in Ireland where he was given the name 'Galanjah'. Busking around Europe, Bob Marley's 'Redemption Song' became his Jah Guiding tune, and 'songs of freedom' are his Standing Ground. Galanjah's acoustic album, 'Bell Jam an' Irie Lan' ' can be found free of charge online:

After a break, the second open mic session will roll from 9 pm. Everyone is welcome to attend or participate. Contact Rose at
