The Belfast Poets have for some time now been breaking new ground for people living in Northern Ireland and, of course, new ground for the Belfast Poets.
Recently back from Australia and since then they have organised the Love Poetry Hate Islamophobia show with added music and visuals - also the Love Music Hate Racism show in Derry - Gordon Hewitt, spokesman for the group said "that it probably was one of the best shows we have done and more the kind of show you might see in Australia - with us, dance/jungle DJ's and a brilliant Nigerian band called Talking Drum playing Nigerian rebel music - good crowd and very receptive to us - it was so quiet that even the bar staff were putting the ice in the glasses "gently" while we were on - a good sign".
They are now embarking on a tour of the island - Ireland and Northern Ireland - 6 shows in 9 days - their real aim is to link up all the disparate groups of poets around the island and to build a circuit that can be utilised to create avenues to work with people who at present work in isolation from each other.
They will also be organising more Love Poetry Hate Racism shows throughout the year but intend to to put on a big event in April with which they want to involve everyone wherever they are. Come what may they will be aiming to perform regularly the rest of the year. You can catch the Belfast Poets this Wed 17th Jan only at the White House Pub, Limerick. Get there early.
