P J Harvey: A Song for Ira-Abel
Sponsored by
The Skinny

Renowned worldwide for her musical performances, P J Harvey has now turned her creative talents to a long-form poem, six years in the writing. Orlam is an incantatory, coming-of-age poem that brings the Dorset dialect to life, drawing on the rituals and superstitions of the West Country to depict the end of nine year old Ira-Abel. Harvey joins us in Edinburgh for an event introduced by Don Paterson.
