Scots Whay Hae! & EIBF Present The Scottish Spoken Word Showcase Podcast...



The third of our collaborations with the Edinburgh International Book Festival is the Scottish Spoken Word Showcase Podcast - a companion to the live event of the same name. For it we interviewed six spoken word performers (Tzusan, Noon Salah Eldin, Angie Strachan, Empress, Rona MacDonald and Colin McGuire - all pictured above) who tell us about who they are, what they do, why they do it, and give us just a taste of their work.


As well as those core conversations we also talk to the Director of the Edinburgh International Book Festival Nick Barley, and Alice Tarbuck from Creative Scotland.


Put together it offers just a small example as to the variety and diversity in the Spoken Word scene in Scotland today, and we hope you'll be encouraged to seek out, and investigate further, the work of our featured artists, and be persuaded to seek out spoken word events across the country.
