An Evening with Adam Horovitz and Becky Dellow

Friday 25 June

Doors open 19 hours

Tickets: £10

‘The Apple’s Rounded World’ is a unique guided tour of the Slad Valley in poetry and music. Originally commissioned for Laurie Lee’s centenary, is a non-stop lyrical guide to the valley performed by poet Adam Horovitz and fiddle player Becky Dellow. It features poetry and prose from the Slad Valley. written by Laurie Lee and Frank Mansell, Adam Horovitz and his poet parents Frances and Michael, and covers nearly every decade from 1914 onwards. Woven in among the poetry and prose are English folk tunes, many of which would have been played by Laurie Lee.

“The tunes selected to complement the poems are from the traditional English dance music repertoire with the majority chosen from an old handwritten manuscript book which belonged to my great great grandfather, thought to date from the mid-1850s,” says Becky Dellow.

Adam Horovitz is a poet, editor and performer based in a thumb offshoot of the Slad valley. He has released two collections of poetry, Turning (2011) and The Soil Never Sleeps (2018). He released a memoir, A Thousand Laurie Lees (2014), for Laurie’s centenary and appears on Cerys Matthews’ album We Come From the Sun (2021). His next collection of poetry, Love and Other Fairy Tales, will be released later this year.

Becky Dellow has been playing fiddle semi-professionally on the folk scene for the last three decades. She has appeared on other people’s albums previously, but releases her debut solo album, Take Her Out and Air Her, later this year. She recently got her doctorate in Musicology, focussing on the tune book of her great great-grandfather Thomas Hampton.
