Singer-songwriter, poet, visual artist and activist, Patti Smith is a true rock icon. Rising as a poet in the heady days of early 70’s New York, she became an influential component of New York’s punk movement with debut album Horses; a raw combination of poetry, yearning chants and rock ‘n’ roll attitude.

Formidable, charismatic, boundary pushing, outspoken and controversial, Smith’s four-decade career has seen her release 11 studio albums and a best-selling memoir, Just Kids – referred to as one of the greatest-ever rock memoirs.

An Evening of Words and Music’ combines spoken word interwoven with music from Smith’s beloved catalogue of songs. Known for her wit and warm rapport with her audiences, Smith shares personal stories from her illustrious career, providing an insight into one of music’s most revered and influential artists.
