Moonshine Word Jam at The Exchange

Moonshine Word Jam is back at The Exchange for a summer evening of poetry and music on Thursday 10th August.

This will be the 4th event, and a celebration of Moonshine’s first birthday.

Moonshine Word Jam is hosted and promoted by poet /musician vocalist Mellow Baku (BootLeg Jazz),  and poet / writer performer Lydia Towsey (WORD!), with partnership support from Leicester Jazz House.

Mellow Baku

This event is a creative collaboration of words from featured artists and open mic poets, with spontaneous jazz from the BootLeg House Trio: drummer Sophie Fishwick, Bassist: Fran Bass, and saxophonist, flautist and percussionist, Deb Mawby.

Celebrating and promoting females in a safe space that’s open to all, is at the heart of Moonshiners Lydia and Mellow, and they welcome everyone to join in, listen or share words. Musicians are welcome to join in with the jazz-based jam that develops later in the evening.

Lydia Towsey

August’s Moonshine Word Jam features performer, singer songwriter and dancer Caroline Rowland, whose poetry and songs are ‘inspired by humanity, nature and magic of each person, the magic in mother earth, and the magic shared between us all’.


“It’s been a whole year!
since we began
And we Moonshine again
because we can!

Our transcendent trio
of fabulous females
Will improvise freely
To spoken word tales

So come every One!
Whoever you be
If you love music
If you dig poetry!”

Why not come along this Thursday 10th August and check out some poetry and jazz in our cellar..
