The fifteenth In Chapters takes place in Chapter Arts Centre as part of the Swn Festival on Friday October 19. As ever a revolving cast of established and up-and coming artists perform new work based around a particular theme, curated by John Williams and Richard James.
This time there will be a whole evening of In Chapters related entertainment. The theme is Outsiders – and the evening will unravel as follows
8-8.45 Charlotte Greig performs songs from Dr Freud’s Cabaret, with accompaniment from Megan Childs.
8.45-9 Iwan Morgan spins outsider sounds.
9-10.15 In Chapters Outsiders
Our crew of Outcasts will feature the following:
Anthony Reynolds and Kirk Lake celebrate Colin Wilson, whose fifties tome The Outsider brought alienation to centre stage in pop culture.
Gareth Potter and Pat Morgan celebrate Datblygu – Welsh titans of outsider pop.
Holly Muller – new fiction from the Hail The Planes frontwoman.
Mel Daley – In Chapters resident blogger with more tales of life on the edge of Canton.
Ninjah – Cardiff’s best dressed man takes the m-i-c..
Osian Rhys Jones – performance poet yn cymraeg, maybe even in a cynghanedd style
Rhodri Viney – aka Ratatosk – king of that most outsider of instruments, the musical saw
Rosie Gleeson – In Chapters are proud to present this new poet on the block
The In Chapters band as ever features:
Andy Fung – The painter and No Thee No Ess mainman on drums and vocal.
Eugene Capper – Producer, engineer, songwriter and banjoist for The Evening Chorus, here showing his skills on the violin.
Ed Mugford – ace of bass.
Iwan Morgan – sound collages and loops from the esteemed producer.
Plus your hosts.
Richard James: Musical director who may also sing songs.
John Williams: who will most likely read something.
10.15-10.30 More outsider sounds from Iwan Morgan
10.30-11.00 Beyond the Outside – a communal psych-kraut-folk freakout. You’ve been warned.
