Katrina Porteous lives in Beadnell and is one of the region’s most celebrated poets. Her book, The Wund an’ The Wetter marks an extraordinary collaboration between herself and the Northumbrian piper Chris Ormston and is a single long poem written in the dialect of the dwindling fishing community of North Northumberland. It has Chris’s music accompaniment throughout. The poem and music were specially commissioned by IRON Press and the book was soon into its second print. It includes a CD of the two performing the 237 line poem. Katrina will read and Chris Ormston will provide the live accompaniment.
