A few weeks ago I hosted 'An Evening with Les Barker's Breakfast', with the wonderful UK poet so many of you enjoyed when he was here in Humph Hall back in 2010.
I am very pleased to announce that I am following up this very successful event with another UK/Australia 'breakfast' but this time with the hugely funny & talented Keith Donnelly together with one of the UK's finest storytellers, Ursula Holden Gill.
Keith Donnelly performed here in Humph Hall almost ten years ago - April, 2011. He did a workshop for kids in the afternoon followed by a concert in the evening. Click on the 'Video' link above to watch Keith doing one of his kid's songs for the adults.
Ursula Holden Gill is a Professional Storyteller, Writer and Educator. She frequently travels internationally and throughout the UK, using music, movement and real-life observation to inform her own original and traditionally inspired work, to nurture other artists and to connect people of all ages with their creativity. In 2012 she was voted Best Newcomer at The British Awards for Storytelling Excellence.
As Keith & Ursula will be joining us from their home in the UK, we are all going to have to once again participate online using Zoom on our computer, smart phone or tablet.
