THE SKINNY EVENT
PJ Harvey with Don Paterson – Orlam: A Conversation
- Sat 20 Aug 20:15 - 21:15
- Central Hall
Attend in person
Renowned worldwide for her musical performances, PJ 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.
