Our Off the Page Ceilidh is back with music from the Riverside Ceilidh Band and words and music in Gaelic and English from Owen Sutcliffe. The night will be a celebration of Scottish music and dance interspersed with literary anecdotes in Gaelic and English.
Owen Sutcliffe was born and grew up in Stirling, in a household full of music.
An accomplished poet in both English and Gaelic, Owen also performs as hip-hop emcee CRPNTR, staking his claim in the currently thriving Scottish rap scene.
Having won the 2011 Sorley McLean National Poetry Prize for his poem – ‘Beul an Latha’ (The Mouth of the Day) – Owen subsequently moved to Ayr and University in order to expand his horizons.
After an acclaimed performance at previous year’s Off The Page, Owen will return this year to perform a selection of his Gaelic and English poetry, and perhaps even a song or two; you’d be wise to see what all the fuss is about.
