Renaissance One and The Scottish National Portrait Gallery presents the first event in Jean 'Binta' Breeze's readings from her new book, The Verandah Poems.

Programmed by Neu! Reekie!, the evening promises performances that will be 'riffing on a Jamaican theme with strident Scottish undertones.'

Recognised as the first female writer and performer of dub poetry, Jean 'Binta' Breeze is a force of nature, and ‘one of the most important, influential performance poets of recent years’ – British Council
