Happy Mondays - Three the Hard Way

Presented By Jean 'Binta' Breeze MBE, Lydia Towsey, and Shruti Chauhan

About this event

Three powerful poets: Jean 'Binta' Breeze MBE, Lydia Towsey, and School of the Arts, English and Drama graduate Shruti Chauhan present this new and exciting work. Together they will sing of sisterhood and connection that cross continents, age, and gender - reflecting on the pain and the joy and giving voice to the many moments in between.

Three the Hard Way derives from Jamaican DJ culture; the description was adopted by UK male dub poets, led by Linton Kwesi Johnson, in the early 80s.
