Welcome to Something Borrowed - A performance/chat/general fun time hosted by World Slam Champion Harry Baker. The first ever guest is the wonderfully warm and wickedly talented Erin Bolens! Self-described in this moment as 'enthusiastic and chaotic', she is a breath of fresh air that we all need as we are not allowed to leave our homes.
We reminisce on how our first gig together has shaped the way I run gigs forevermore, she shares a delicious trilogy of Pandemic Poems, we both share a favourite poem of ours from elsewhere - mine from Lemn Sissay and hers the stunning Small Kindnesses by Danusha Laméris. This weeks something blue translates as The TARDIS, Blue planet, Blue Peter and the boy band Blue, who to be fair to them had the whole city on lockdown long before coronavirus.
Erin has posted up her new poems on her instagram page www.instagram.com/erinbolens and I will be doing my next live episode on www.instagram.com/harrybakerpoet at 7pm GMT on Wednesday. In the meantime if you have enjoyed and would like to donate anything to maybe help me buy a better microphone i have set up a Ko-Fi page here: https://ko-fi.com/harrybaker
