“The Lost Words” with Caledonia Skytower & Elrik Merlin at The Magic Tree – 18 September

There is something special coming to The Magic Tree this month: a wonderful reading by two of our world’s very best spoken word artists! Caledonia Skytower, who reads regularly at The Magic Tree – in addition to her duties as principal at the wonderful Seanchai Library – is bringing a special guest to her next session. Cale will be joined this coming Wednesday at 3 PM SLT by the well-known Elrik Merlin, whose marvelous work with Radio Riel and the popular Second Life®television programme Designing Worlds makes him a household name in SL®.

Both of these talented individuals have wonderful speaking voices and rich repertoires of readings. Truly, they can read anything with skill and presence, but they are also excellent at selecting just the right material for themselves. This time, they will read from a wonderful book that is guaranteed to get our attention.

Award-winning author Robert Macfarlane and acclaimed artist & author Jackie Morris created something wonderful and unique in their 2017 book. The Lost Words is a ‘book of spells’ that seeks to conjure back the near-lost magic and strangeness of the nature that surrounds us. It transcends age barriers inspiring children and moving adults with its wide appeal. This past July eight leading folk musicians released their response to the creatures, art, and language of Macfarlane & Morris’ book. On 18 September at 3 PM SLT, Elrik and Caledonia present a special blending of the music and spells of The Lost Words, live on stream at The Magic Tree in Ce Soir Arts. Do plan to join us HERE.
