Possible Scotlands with Momus

  • The Glad Cafe Glasgow G41 2HG (map)

A night of music, reading and talking with author and commentator Gerry Hassan.

Momus, whose Book of Scotlands is published in Scotland for the first time by Luath Press this September, presents an evening of songs and stories about 'possible Scotlands' – delirious and speculative versions of the future of a nation which requires more than ever its writers and artists to dream it into existence.

Since Momus is a singer (he first emerged on the coattails of the Postcard Records scene) he’ll be singing some of his Scotlands, and since he’s also a writer, reading others. There’ll also be signed books to buy and questions and answers (but possibly more questions).

An example Scotland: ‘The Scotland in which four hundred years of influence from Calvin is replaced by four hundred years of profound influence from Calvino.’

"For those who need a short introduction to the world of Momus – he is that rare and unusual creation, a genuine multi-talented polymath." Gerry Hassan in the preface to The Book of Scotlands.

Tickets are £10 and available from the Glad Cafe website.
