Flint & Pitch is Scotland’s leading spoken word/ music event for new and emerging talent, launching in August 2016 to much acclaim. Specialising in events that feature new and exciting authors, poets and music acts, CoastWord is delighted to have this special Revue show to close our Saturday programme!

Curated and hosted by award-winning poet, programmer, and Flint & Pitch founder Jenny Lindsay, this eclectic Revue show features short stories from 404-Ink published Helen McClory; co-founder of spoken word house-party Sonnet Youth, Kevin Gilday; a special acoustic set from Biff Smith and Caroline Evans of A New International; the heartfelt and often surreal songwriting of the blistering talent Hailey Beavis; plus a set from exciting new voice Melissa Goodbourn.

A delicious mix of spoken word and song to celebrate a best of Scotland’s live talent!
