Golden Bay Live Poets presents UK spoken word artist RikTheMost.
Internationally touring poet RikTheMost has performed shows in the UK, Australia, Canada, America and Finland. A well-known figure on the UK spoken word scene, he has won numerous Poetry Slams, including in Melbourne where he qualified to represent Australia in their first ever national slam team at the American National Poetry Slam Finals in Denver this year.
Live music will open for a half hour set of Open Mic poetry before our guest poet hits the stage.
Local harmonic percussive guitarist Benjamin Embers will open the evening at 8pm. You may have seen him performing harmonic percussive guitar at local markets, holding a captive audience. A musician, poet and novelist from the coldest corner of NZ, Benjamin is currently working on his second album and second novel.
Golden Bay's musical faeary duo, Mudwood, will MC.
