The two members of the group, Beth Porter and Ben Please, will be joined on stage by local novelist and viola player, Emma Hooper, bestselling author of Wild Geese, and local writer and lecturer, Jack Wolf. The event will be recorded for an album released by new, local, independent label Kelston Records.
