Jahi the Poet
A evening of conversation, poetry and acoustic music at The Pocket Watch in Shepherd's Bush, London, UK in aid of the Youth Music Charity. On the final day of Give A Gig A Week an embrace of beautiful West London people gathered to share music and spoken word as the populace boozed themselves into the weekend. Rather than battle the background chatter from the bar Florence Glen slowly brought the audience closer in a conspiratorial huddle, gathering us like the selected few. We swam against the tide, a shoal of glittering minds eagerly listening to the wash of Glen's music. In contrast the audience leaned back for Jahi The Poet's performance, he was a wave, a personality and talent of some force.

Give a Gig Week is a nationwide extravaganza of live music and fundraising. Hundreds of gigs of all shapes and sizes took place during 24-31 March 2017. Give a Gig Week is an initiative to raise funds for Youth Music. They are a national charity investing in music-making projects for children and young people in challenging circumstances.
