who are we?
Echoes and Edges is a collective of Bristol based poets and musicians, working together on ideas that merge spoken word with improvised and composed pieces of music. Through a combination of musical improvisation, atmospheric field recordings and soulful vocals, we transform the poems into sonic pictures of memories and moments.
We are three poets and two musicians:
Gillie Harries is an engaging poet / performer, published both here and in Australia - poet in the pool at Bristol lido and working towards publication of her first collection
Tim performs short, quirky, silly poems, covering a diverse range of cutting edge issues such as his favourite dance moves and a hedgehog called Dave.
David Punter is a well-known Bristol writer, winner of various prizes, and author of ‘The Bristol Sonnets’ and five volumes of poetry.
Charlie is a jazz vocalist, singer-songwriter and vocal coach who is involved in a number of projects including her own solo project of live-looped neo-soul as well as jazz and swing dance bands.
