Gorman among the Round-Up at Flat Lake

In a rather rare public appearance these days (since I have little enough to shout about…) I will be reading from my new prose work in the legendary Butty Barn at the Flat Lake Festival this coming Saturday 4th June.  Fittingly at this rustic cowboy poetry rodeo, I will appear at High Noon, sharing the 12.00 – 13.00hrs slot with the renowned Rosita Sweetman (On our Knees; Fathers Come First and On our Backs).

Rosita Sweetman

Inimitable curator Pat McCabe has declared the Flat Lake to be a place where artists should be free to try out new and unfamiliar material and among those who have done so in the past are Jack L whose innovative Paul Robeson review was a revelation last year.  Where better then for a North Monaghan play writer to read from a storybook about Dublin?

For a gander at the bulging programme of events, visit the Flat Lake website. A weekend ticket including pitching rights for your wigman is only 75 euro if you book online.  If you get up late on Saturday, you may bring your Breakfast Butty into the barn with you.
