Emily Maguire is a singer-songwriter, composer, poet, multi-instrumentalist and mental health advocate who has released five albums and three books and has a remarkable, inspiring story to tell.
Emily’s third publication is a book of poetry called ‘Meditation Mind’. It is a collection of short, stream-of-consciousness poems written after her daily Buddhist meditation practice at a time when she was unable to play her instruments due to tendonitis.
Emily has recently finished a UK tour of arts centres and is in Bridport as part of a tour of bookshops to promote 'Meditation Mind'. Tonight’s event will be a mix of poetry readings from her book and acoustic songs accompanied by her husband Christian Dunham on double-bass. There will also be a question and answer session after the set.
