We are VERY excited to announce that Kizzy Crawford will be performing for us; a Welsh speaker with Bajan heritage, 23 year old Kizzy Crawford's solo career began just a few years ago and in that time, Kizzy has developed an increasing sophistication to her songwriting and performance, which is complimented by her soulful voice that boasts both range and charisma.

Her last single Progression was added to Jo Whiley & Simon Mayo’s drivetime show playlist on BBC Radio 2.

Kizzy has performed at Glastonbury, Festival No 6, L’Orient, Celtic Connections, Womex, Hay Festival, The Great Escape, Cheltenham Jazz and she’s also performed live at The Senedd, Westminster and with BBC National Orchestra of Wales at St David’s Hall.

Later that year, Kizzy co-wrote music with jazz pianist & composer Gwilym Simcock for the collaborative project Birdsong-Can Yr Adar which toured throughout Wales and at London Jazz Festival. Birdsong – Can Yr Adar , was based on the Celtic Rainforest of Carngafallt and was a partnership project with Sinfonia Cymru, RSPB Cymru, PRS & Arts Council of Wales. The Birdsong album was released in May 2018 via Basho Records followed by a launch in London and tour of Wales. The CD was listed by renowned jazz reviewer Ted Gioia, as one of his Best Jazz releases of 2018.

A Year of Lovers Book Launch

Doors 3.30pm / Start 4pm     Free
Lover and poet, Rosie feels words like others feel touch. She falls for a moment like others fall for a person, and she’d love to share a moment with you. Please join us to celebrate the release of the first poetry collection from Rosie With Words. Allow spoken word moments to lull you into your evening, before enjoying the live music.
Live music from Saint Senara, recently crowned “the best band in Gloucestershire” in the Battle of the Bands.
Rosie’s work has been described as “refreshing…..  seductive….  arresting…. magical… “ Rosie creates visuals & projections to accompany poems written for performance at The Globe’s famous Open Mic night.  Her Instagram account @rosiewithwords offers poems and their accompanying sensual visuals, along with captioned recordings of live performances, and reviews. 
A few recent reviews of the book and live performances: 
“I’ve just fallen in love with you via your words… ‘Let my tongue touch the corners of your name in a whisper’ is possibly one of the most sensually evocative things I’ve ever read.  I’ve never known a writer to be so implicitly explicit. I know exactly what you mean and it’s so graphic but you describe it in the most subtly abstract way. It’s beautiful. Your writing is so sensual, sexy and with a hint of melancholic celebration… it’s very VERY good.”
“Read this book tonight…. couldn’t put it down.
I can’t tell you how wonderful this book is, and how wonderful this lady is as a performer. She celebrates her sexuality, and writes with no predjudice, equal candour and retrospective love towards all of her previous lovers. Both incredibly explicit whilst equally striking the balance of non compromising subtlety, a wonderfully sensual writer. If you don’t follow her on Insta, nor have seen her live, nor bought her book, you are completely missing out.”

STRAWBERRY RUNNERS with support from PERIANT and poems from JOHANNA WARREN

8pm      EarlybirdTickets £8/£10 Standard  
The Globe is very lucky to have Strawberry Runners choose us as one of the venues for their 'Across the Pond' performances.  In Strawberry Runners' eponymous debut album, New York songwriter, Emi Night navigates themes of solitude and belonging; trauma and the complex entanglement of love and control within relationships on the terrain of folk, pop, and country-reminiscent instrumentation. Night wields heavy lyrical material with disarming grace and candor, and there is no better setting to witness this than in her solo, acoustic performances. 'Strawberry Runners' may sparkle on its surface, but beneath lies an untamed reckoning with the world and oneself. Following the album’s release and a full U.S. tour, Night will visit the UK and Ireland for a series of intimate, acoustic performances.

Live music from ANNA ANISE with support from BOCI

8pm   Earlybird ticket £11 / £12 Standard
Anna Anise is a warm summer breeze of feel-good folk, captivating audiences with her lyrical storytelling and glorious melodies. Anna’s passion for community through music is evident in her infectious energy onstage and ability to bring a whole room together with a hooky chorus. 
The Celtic influence is evident in Anna’s full-bodied guitar tunings and regular fiddle accompaniment, which stems from her Cornish roots. Higher Plain Music said ‘[Anna’s] melodies are fantastic, the arrangements sound fresh and yet the listener feels connected to old-school roots.’
Lovely DIY folk sound, lovely vocals, just brilliant-  Adam Crowther, BBC Radio
Support for the night comes from boci - an innovative violinist and songwriter creating alt-folk songs and instrumentals. In her debut album 'we are each other, this will set us free', boci takes the listener on a therapeutic journey through her experiences of loss and healing.
