A magical, musically highlighted spoken word performance with poet Anthony Joseph and virtuoso musicians playing improvised jazz. Sonnets for Albert remixes the form in a set of elegies for the poet’s father that navigate absentee fatherhood and masculine fragility As a poet, musician and novelist, Anthony Joseph has produced an extraordinary body of work including four critically acclaimed albums, and has been described as ‘the leader of the Black avant­garde in Britain’. Hosted by Ledbury Poetry Critic Jade Cuttle.
