Bob Beagrie: Leásungspell: An Anglo Saxon Fool’s Tale

Poet Bob Beagrie along with a group of musicians, conjures up the wild and wyrd world of the Dark Ages in a live performance of spoken word and sound, to launch the publication of the epic poem Leásungspell.

It’s 657AD, and Northumbria is one of the seven warring Anglo Saxon kingdoms, a place where the traditions of Celtic Christianity, Roman Christianity and pagan beliefs and magic clash.

Leásungspell brings to life the mindset and vision of a world filled with animism, rapture and omens. It is a tale of twisting digressions, dreamscapes and stories folded within stories and of language itself. It is also an anti-epic, a fool’s yarn, a small tale of a nobody wandering alone through the Dark Ages.
