Loud Poets (Loud Poets)

By | Published on Saturday 23 August 2014

For fans of spoken word poetry ‘Loud Poets’ is a real gem. The group seems to consist of four core members as well as a small army of others who will perform on an occasional basis. Tonight’s performance saw two guest poets and a live band fleshing out the hour long show. They may have differing styles but this is a group that are passionate, intelligent and elegant. The performances are periodically broken up with some video packages which are rough around the edges but still charming (better sound quality would help). If you have been asking yourself where the angry voice of youth has gone, those who talk about the problems of today, then you might consider going to see this show.

Scottish Storytelling Centre, until 24 Aug.
