Upcoming Polly Samson and David Gilmour talks Print E-mail

Saturday, 19 March 2016

img-branding-english.gifOn May 27th, at 7pm, the Hay on Wye Literature Festival David Gilmour and Polly Samson discuss their songwriting partnership, the writing process between lyricist and musician. They have collaborated on four No. 1 albums: Pink Floyd's The Division Bell and The Endless River, David Gilmour's On An Island, and the recent Rattle That Lock.

Tickets - priced at just £15.00, are on sale now from the festival website. Our thanks in particular to Adrian Childs-Clarke and Byron Lewis for letting us know about this.

Before this event though, Polly is joining Jonathan Lee and "a Surprise Guest" (now, obviously it might not be him, but there's a fair chance it could be...) at the latest Damian Barr’s Literary Salon which is being held at the Liberty Hall at Ace Hotel, New York, on Saturday April 9th at 8pm, with doors opening at 7:30pm.

Polly is there for the US launch of the paperback of her critically acclaimed novel The Kindness. She will also discuss her work as a lyricist on The Division Bell, On An Island, The Endless River and Rattle That Lock. Jonathan Lee is a British novelist living in New York. Polly and Jonathan will give readings and be interviewed by Damian who will take questions. There will then be a short interval before their final, surprise, guest. You can buy books on the night and there will be a signing afterwards.

Tickets - priced at $15.00 - are on sale now from the Eventbrite website.

UPDATE: Before either of the above, this coming Wednesday, March 23rd, David and Polly are in conversation with book critic and author David Ulin in Los Angeles. The event takes place at 7:30pm at The Last Bookstore, 453 S Spring Street, and more details can be found at

The event is free, with seating and standing room available on a first-come-first-served basis.
