Called Back – The Poems of Emily Dickinson

November 12 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


A words and music event inspired by the poetry of Emily Dickinson delivered in the intimate setting of Shambellie House. Includes a tour of the house to hear about the history and heritage from a descendent of the Stewart Family.

Includes tea/coffee and canapes. Concessions available at booking.


Join us at Shambellie House for a very special evening of music and poetry.
Emily Dickinson’s enigmatic and brilliant poetry was largely unread and unpublished during her lifetime but she is now considered one of America’s greatest and most original poets. Singer/songwriter John Hinshelwood’s sensitive musical interpretations based on a selection of her poetry, accompanied by words read from her letters open a window on the life and work of this remarkable woman and the passions and preoccupations which she poured into her writing. John is joined by regular band members, Tim Black and Ed McGlone and Emily’s words are read by Fiona Wellstood.
Join us from 18:00 for a tour of Shambellie House and 30 minutes of music from The John Hinshelwood Band followed by a 75 minute performance settings Dickinson’s poems to music, played by John and his band, linked by readings from her letters by actor Fiona Wellstood.
