Meet The Last Poets

Formed in the crucible of 1960s black rights activism, with the Black Panthers at the peak of their powers and an irresistible mood of revolutionary hope in the air, The Last Poets have come to be known as ‘the godfathers of hip-hop’, such has been their impact on generations of musicians. This, their first ever appearance in Scotland, is unmissable for true fans of the genre. Tonight they perform their vital, vibrant, often furious work and are joined by Christine Otten, whose novel The Lost Poets captures their lives. Over 18s only.
