Patti Smith To Perform At Welsh Poetry Festival

Patti Smith is to appear at this year's Laugharne Weekend - the festival that celebrates Welsh literature and cult writing.

Smith will appear twice during the weekend, reading at the 24 capacity boathouse, which is dedicated to iconic poet Dylan Thomas, as well as performing in the main venue, Millennium Hall.

Other artists performing include Patrick Wolf, who released third album 'The Magic Position' last year, and former Larrikin Love front man Ed Larrikin will be acting out his one-man play 'Camusflage Krokodial'.

Also appearing at the literary festival will be writers Will Self, Booker Prize winner DBC Pierre, Howard Marks and Lionel Shriver.

The festival now in it's second year, will also screen films, most notably the
premiere of new Dylan Thomas biopic 'The Edge Of Love', starring Keira Knightley, Sienna Miller and Matthew Rhys. Director John Maybury will be hosting a Q&A session after the film.

The Smiths' drummer Mike Joyce will also be showing the DVD 'Inside The Smiths' and answering questions afterwards.

The festival takes place in West Wales from March 28 - 30.
