A biography in poems, Leadbelly examines the life and times of the legendary blues musician from a variety of intimate and historical perspectives, using a range of innovative poetic forms. A collage of song, culture and circumstance, alive and speaking.

“This is one of the most powerful exchanges between poetry and history that I have read.”
