FRESH from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, singer and actor Karen Gemma Brewer brings her new one woman show Dissident Sausage to the Cellar Bards, at Cardigan’s Cellar Bar on Friday, September 27.

Chock full of hilarious and heartrending stories of sheep, flies, slugs, toads, woodworm, blind dogs, the Sultan of Brunei, Frankenstein’s sister and a sausage in a fridge, this show picks the scabs of the human condition with rhyme, rhythm and song.

Doors and the bar open at 7.45pm, at the Cellar Bar, Quay Street, Cardigan. Entry is £3, and open mic spots are available as always.

In an action-packed 45-minute set, Dissident Sausage delivers a fry-up of freedom, religion, environment, diversity, bomb disposal and sheep rustling.

Prepare to laugh and cry as Karen, with the help of Lady Penelobee (her acoustic guitar), deletes the past to make way for the future with hilarious and poignant poems, singalong choruses and space-motion actions that invite the audience to become part of the show.

Born of coalmining and farm labouring stock, the Gorsgoch bard is published widely in the UK, Ireland and USA and regularly performs on radio, at festivals, clubs, pubs, shops, colleges, schools and in the street.

Karen is a two-time winner of the Tim Williams Performance Poetry Award and has a recent poetry collection: Seeds From A Dandelion published by Cowry Publishing.

Open mic spots are always available at The Cellar Bards, Cardigan’s only regular spoken word event. The Bards welcome writers of poetry, short stories, micro-fiction and novels, as well as a song or two (maximum five minutes each reader).

People who want to read can put their names down at the door on the night. Or go along to listen to the fabulous poetry of Jonathan Edwards, plus a variety of spoken word performances from the talented regulars.
