The Jesus Bolt celebrate the launch of Hazel Winter’s poetry book with a live performance of her poems – surreal adventures in Bristol and beyond.
After writing and filming spoken word pieces over many years, Bristol-based singer/songwriter, guitarist, film maker and blogger Hazel Winter is publishing her first collection of poetry. Inspiration for the volume came from an eclectic range of exploits: there were ill- advised hitch hiking trips to Greenham Common, expeditions searching for Shaman in Siberia and playing guitar on Glastonbury Pyramid stage, but it wasn’t until the early morning pig-related trauma on Windmill Hill City Farm allotments that the poetic muse grunted her way into sentience.
Working in the music industry and on her city farm allotment has proved a rich compost of inspiration over a period of many years, involving as it has, frequently toiling thigh-deep in excrement. The flowering of this collection has been illustrated by friend, artist and City Farm worker, Hope Talbot.
