Update: The promoters of Mansfield - In Her Own Words regrettably advise that due to the ongoing global situation regarding Coronavirus and the associated travel restrictions, all shows for this tour are now postponed and rescheduled to 2021.
Mansfield – In Her Own Words is a concert of selected poems by Katherine Mansfield, set to contemporary music composed by several of our leading songwriters and recording artists including Lawrence Arabia, Julia Deans, The Bats, Mel Parsons, and French for Rabbits.
Twelve tracks by 12 different composers with a multi-band format, on and off for a song each, linked by a curated selection of Katherine Mansfield's letters.

The companion album, Mansfield, is out physically and digitally Feb 20, 2020.
