This New York based show brings together a different group of musicians, authors, comedians and poets for each performance, combining their individual talents to create and deliver a unique and unforgettable experience.
"The Cabinet began as a way of bringing together my writer friends who often envy my musician friends with my musician friends who sometimes envy my writer friends and the comedians who generally envy - and are envied by - both of them. But over the years these shows have established a convivial atmosphere all of their own, and I can't wait to bring that mood to the land of my birth for the first time. The fact that this will be happening in a beautiful room at the historic home of British folk music is the icing on the cake".
For this special, one-off night at Cecil Sharp House we will host some of the biggest names in the poetry, music and literary worlds.
