"Tempest is an excruciatingly beautiful performer ... " - The Guardian

A special solo spoken word performance from award-winning poet, rapper and playwright Kate Tempest

Kate Tempest has reinvented the power of the spoken word. Named a Next Generation Poet by the Poetry Book Society (a once-a-decade accolade) and winner of the Ted Hughes Award for Brand New Ancients, Kate’s albums Everybody Down and Let Them Eat Chaos were both nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, as well as gaining her a nomination for Best Female Solo Performer at the 2018 Brit Awards. Her latest studio album The Book of Traps and Lessons, produced by Rick Rubin, was released in 2019.

Giving voice to the concerns of a generation – class, gentrification, climate change, intolerance, loss and love - Tempest comes to Cork’s iconic Everyman as part of Cork Midsummer Festival 2020 on 15 June.
