For fans of ice hockey, maple syrup, tuques, loonies, and all things Canuck: it's (almost) time to get your skates on and head on down to Tiny Rebel, Cardiff, for a night of Canadian music and Literature. The headline act is brilliant roots singer/songwriter, Steph Cameron, who hails from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, and is touring her sophomore album, Daybreak Over Jackson Street. She'll be supported by Darren Eedens & The Slim Pickin's, and on the literature side of things Tyler will be joining poet and short story writer Jonathan Mulcahy-King. Tyler will be reading from No Good Brother, released next month in the UK and Canada. It's shaping up to be a barnstorming, bootstomping night - so get down to Tiny Rebel tomorrow for doors at 7.30 p.m. We'll see you there!
Next week Tyler will be returning to Aberystwyth, where he studied for his MA and PhD in Creative Writing. Aberystwyth University's Creative Writing department, and the Creative Writing society, is hosting a festival on the theme of 'generations'. Tyler will feature in an event on Saturday, October 28th, along with fellow Aberystwyth alumni Katherine Stansfield and David Towsey, entitled Rising Stars. They will be reading from their own work, and discussing their artistic influences. The event starts at 5 p.m., and tickets are £6-8 (available to buy in advance here): so if you're in the area come along, and we'll see you there!
Having just rolled back into town after his event on the Caught by the River stage, at the Good Life Experience Festival (courtesy of Jeff Barrett, and featuring the first reading from No Good Brother - check out the pic of the stage below), Tyler is heading off again this week to do an event with poets Rhian Edwards and fellow BYT Susie Wild. As part of the ongoing Penned On The Bont series, they will be celebrating the launch of Susie's new poetry collection, Better Houses Have Windows. It's shaping up to be a great night; things kick off at 7.30 at Carnegie House in Bridgend. Entry is only a fiver, so come along and we'll catch you there!
