The Lost Poets at the National Library of Scotland


Join the Lost Poets – Ron Butlin, Andrew Greig, Liz Lochhead and Brian McCabe with musician Jim Hutcheson – for a special reunion.

In the seventies and eighties, The Lost Poets — Ron Butlin, Andrew Greig, Liz Lochhead, Brian McCabe and musician Jim Hutcheson — were Scotland’s response to the Liverpool Poets. For many years they were regulars at the Edinburgh Fringe and elsewhere. With their unique blend of poetry and music they proved to be an inspiration for much of today’s Spoken Word movement. Each of them went on to highly successful careers as novelists, playwrights and visual artists, as well as continuing to publish poetry. This event will be a celebratory grand reunion – definitely not to be missed!
