Kate Kennedy : Dweller in the Shadows - Ivor Gurney

This event contains digital content (live streaming or video on demand)


Dr KATE KENNEDY is a broadcaster and writer, who specialises in combining biography, words and music. She is a regular presenter and contributor for Radio 3, and her documentaries have been selected for Pick of the Week by the BBC, 

Ivor Gurney (1890–1937) wrote some of the most-anthologized poems of the First World War and composed some of the greatest works in the English song repertoire, such as “Sleep.” Yet his life was shadowed by the trauma of the war and mental illness, and he spent his last fifteen years confined to a mental asylum. In Dweller in Shadows, Kate Kennedy presents the first comprehensive biography of this extraordinary and misunderstood artist.

Dr Kennedy will be in conversation with journalist and writer Charlie Lee. Potter.
