Gavin Osborn and Molly Naylor

This. Is. A. Treat.

Acclaimed singer-songwriter Gavin Osborn arrives at the Book Hive with fire in his belly, stories to tell and a new found sense of hope in his heart. A regular at festivals (Latitude, Green Man), familiar to listeners of BBC Radio 4 (Alun Cochrane's Fun House) and having just returned from an Australian tour with Daniel Kitson (Stories For The Starlit Sky), this is part of Gavin's first solo UK tour in three years. Featuring life-affirming, funny, personal and political songs, including some from his brand new record, 'Echo Bridge'. 

'Funny and touching' - Stewart Lee, The Sunday Times.

'In true Loudon Wainwright spirit, he sings about serious things without taking himself too seriously. Splendidly sad tales of unrequited love and some proper protest music. Genuinely brilliant' - eFestivals

Molly Naylor is a scriptwriter, poet and performer. She co-wrote and created the Sky One sitcom After Hours. Her first poetry collection, Badminton, was published this year by Burning Eye.  She is the host and co-director of True Stories Live, a storytelling project and sell-out storytelling night. 

Naylor writes with a poet’s ear for rhythm and metaphor, and delivers with a stand-up’s comic timing - The Times

Come and see these two superb writers and performers in a unique intimate little gig at The Book Hive.  For free. That's right. For free. Madness isn't it?? Just make sure you ring or drop in to put your name down on the guest list - there are limited spaces!!
