Hammer & Tongue Hackney, Tuesday March 6th 2012
On the first Tuesday in March, Bristol poet Anna Freeman will reach our part of the Hammer & Tongue network, where she will be sharing the bill with Poet, Film Maker, Jazz/Hip Hop practitioner and Griot to the willing, HKB Finn. The Victoria, 451 Queensbridge Road E87 3AS. 8-11pm
HKB Finn was born in Malta, schooled in Jamaica and brought up inside the various traditions of Poetry, Reggae, Hip Hop and Jazz. He started in UK hiphop in the early 1990s with Katch 22, and now as a solo artists, his latest release is (I think) his 7th album. Always an innovator, he is able to stradle multiple genres with a unique perspective that reminds us above all else, that the healing power of Art is an essential aspect of the creative experience.

Anna Freeman, Bristol poet, has perhaps not had such a long and distinguished career but she is a great poet – funny, provoking but always with a serious message underneath. She is a multiple slam champion, including the Latitude Festival Slam, and is truly a “rising star” (Venue magazine), whom I think London needs to get to know.
Plus the open mic slam, open to 1st 8 on the door.
The Victoria, 451 Queensbridge Road. E8 3AS
8-11pm ~(doors, dj, slam sign-up from 7pm)
