Swallow Your Pride
Swallow Your Pride has an unmissable line-up, featuring Joelle Taylor – physical performance poet, playwright and author, and the founder and Artistic Director of SLAMbassadors UK – who has performed around the world but is making her first appearance in Penzance.
We also proudly present Devon singer and musician, Jim Causley.
Jim has been nominated for the Radio 2 Folk Awards on numerous occasions and won The Mike Hartland Award for work which engages people in Cornish culture at the Gorsedh Kernow Awards in 2017.
Additionally, we have Penzance based radical-political alternative rock four-piece, The Tribunes: join the fightback against austerity with their musical equivalent of socialism.
Diversity and perversity!
“Joelle observes the realities of modern-day life, pinpoints the absurdities and the injustices, and then reminds us that we are human…Her poetry is fearless. It gets right to the point. Her poetry has purpose.” Benjamin Zephaniah.
“Jim Causley is one of the finest singers in the British folk revival.” The Guardian.
