The Leaves of the Years

Poets Hugh McMillan and Stuart Paterson, plus invited guest readers and musicians, host a very special evening celebrating the life and work of Galloway’s greatest modern poet, William Neill. Neill wrote wonderfully in English, Scots and Gaelic and his work celebrates the landscape and history of Scotland while addressing issues of language, politics and culture that remain relevant today.

A short film showing will precede readings from a newly published book celebrating the centenary of Neill’s birth. ‘The Leaves of the Years’ (Ed Hugh McMillan and Stuart Paterson, published by Drunk Muse Press) contains essays and poems from some of the nation’s finest contemporary writers.

Light refreshments provided. Staged by Crossmichael Arts
