Guernsey Literary Festival

The evening will start with a show by World Poetry Slam Champion and author of The Sunshine Kid Harry Baker who will share with us his unique mix of humour, heart and hopefulness, followed by a performance from the  Heidi Joubert Trio who will perform original compositions inspired from every corner of the earth. They seamlessly combine jazz, funk, pop, soul and world music by fusing acoustic, earthern shades and electronic modern concepts. The Recks, an alternative five-piece band hailing from the tiny Isle of Sark will complete the evening’s events. Formed in 2012, they set out to write contemporary multi-genre music with a roots-based foundation and quickly amassed a full set of lively, infectious songs that began to set crowds alight in packed out festival tents. Positive reviews followed from MTV, Q Magazine and Drowned in Sound, with the latter declaring them “the new kings of schizophrenic folk”. A mini tour of UK venues and appearances at festivals in the UK and France followed with rave reviews.
