Kim Moore | What the Trumpet Taught Me | Litfest

Award-winning poet Kim Moore studied music and was a trumpet teacher for several years. What the Trumpet Taught Me (Smith|Doorstop Books 2022) is a collection of vivid snapshots, from first lessons to attending music college, from teaching trumpet in schools and conducting a brass band, right through to playing in working men’s clubs in a ten-piece soul band. Meditative, funny and moving, these short prose pieces are open to experience and clear-eyed about the vagaries of class prejudice and the intricacies of gender in a predominantly male world. Woven into her performance will be poems from her latest collection, All the Men I Never Married (Seren 2021). In Person Tickets: £8/£6. Online Tickets: £5. For further information and to book visit:
