BARLEY TOP - PRESS INFORMATION
Poetry book & audio CD - Author: Keith Howden - Music: Matt Howden
Release date: Weds 1st May 2013
About the poetry
Barley Top is an account of growing up in a moorland, working-class village in the Lancashire of the 1930’s, remembering its enclosed and limited world and later, coming to terms with a society more complex, wealthier but less able to assess its roots. These are poems that reach back to the historic naming of farms, nod ironically towards the uneasy mood of the late thirties and move into the political tensions of the post-war years.
About the music
The music wraps itself around the words; conjuring landscapes, pulsing to the word's pulse, its tensions parallel to the poems'. Violin and viola dominate, but piano, organ, bass, and found-sounds have their place here too. The last piece “The Sour Land Desolate” brings together the musical themes throughout Barley Top in a 'symphonic' finish.
About the product
Barley Top is a top-quality hardback book, sewn sections, with silver foil blocked spine and front. The accompanying audio CD contains the author reading his poems set to music composed by his son, Matt Howden. It comes in a matching black and silver card wallet.
