Liver Performance: Mike Garry & Cassia String Quartet

Acclaimed Northern poet, Mike Garry is hosting an exclusive free gig with his Cassia String Quartet on Friday 23rd July 7:30pm

The combination of a classical quartet set against Mike's critically acclaimed  poetry has been a hit at festivals worldwide for the last  five years, so Altrincham is in for a very special midsummer night of spoken word.   The group’s live performances go beyond music and poetry to create a sense of theatre with  the audience taken on a journey through sound.  The outdoor performance in the “Not So Secret Garden” will be one of Mike Garry’s performances of the year with the quartet ahead of the release of their eagerly-awaited new album out in the Autumn. 

Mike Garry has worked with artists from John Cooper Clarke to Iggy Pop, but it was his collaboration with the Cassia String Quartet which earned him a number one single in the UK charts with their ‘Ode To Saint Anthony’. The tribute to Anthony Wilson has become a beloved eulogy to one of Manchester’s most important musical figures and raised money for The Christie Hospital.

This is not one to be missed. No need to book a table, but we would recommend arriving early to avoid disappointment!
