GLASGOW: Last Monday at Rio

Monday, January 25th, 2010, 8pm, FREE
The Rio Cafe,
27 Hyndland Street,

Top performers to launch the decade at Last Monday this month are Jo Bell and Tawona Sithole.

Jo Bell is a poet of both rare soul and humour. She's making a welcome foray to our dark and frozen wee land. Co-ordinator of National Poetry Day and Poet Laureate of Cheshire Jo appears to be just as happy reflecting on the still of her river-boat home as she is in the bear-pit of slam competition. She's a must-see so you must come and see her!

Tawona Sithole is our very own Zimbab-Weegie. His work gives us in Glasgow a glimpse of the African culture of music and song under threat from modern ways of living. Hearing Tawona is strong magic.

There's room for 10 open mickeys so get yer dibs in early. Robin Cairns is your compere. Contact on
