East coast shows

Playing Melbourne at The Wesley Anne, November 25th 8pm book online. Also in Ballarat at The Lost Ones Basement Bar November 26th 2pm, tickets at the door.

Jen will be joined by: Chris Parkinson, Richard Coates, Tara Carragher and Mark Seddon. The album is accompanied by a 100 page book including all poems, poets’ commentary and photography. — Get there for the dark night and the louder silence.

The Night’s Insomnia is a dark, open and achingly beautiful album. A smart project that builds songs from the words of 12 contemporary Australian poets from around the country. Works that evoke the feeling and space that keep us awake in the black hours. That place where the fight of thought comes in from the edges of everything.

Poets include: Cate Kennedy / Kevin Brophy / Esther Ottaway / Ali Cobby Eckermann / David Brooks / Steve Brock / Juan Garrido-Salgado / Jill Jones / Ouyang Yu / Nathan Curnow / Kathryn Hummel / Renee Pettitt-Schipp with an introduction by Cath Kenneally.
