History, myth and a contemporary wit are frequent bedfellows in Scottish poet Carol Ann Duffy's work. A celebrated and award-winning poet, writer and playwright, Duffy has won the T.S. Eliot Prize and a Lannan Literary Award for Poetry, among others, and was appointed Britain's Poet Laureate in 2009, the first woman to hold the position. Her collections of poetry include The Bees, Rapture and Jubilee Lines. For this appearance, she'll read selections from her own work and from her favorite works by others. Learn More

Wonderful venue, small and intimate. The performers were lively and talented and the subject and music were both facinating and unique. Interesting how the manuscripts were found, reconstructed and performed; one really had a sense of being back in the 13th century.
Treating love in all its guises, the songs of the troubadours and lively dances for fiddles, harps, citole, flutes, and percussion celebrate the joy of love requited.
With soprano Johana Arnold, instrumentalists Robert Eisenstein, Christopher Kendall, and other guests
