Hilarious and surreal, McGough is a poet of many voices. Menace and melancholy there may be, but with plenty of McGough’s characteristic wit and wordplay, too. His newest collection of comical verse, perfect for Hay, is It Never Rains. He is joined by the brilliantly inventive three-piece band that has enjoyed huge success around the world with its settings of poetry. Little Machine are the musicians, composers and writers Walter Wray, Steve Halliwell and Chris Hardy.
