Interweaving new material with Ian Gurney’s own music, poems and letters, Iain Burnside has created a unique piece of music theatre, A Soldier And A Maker.

Today, three-quarters of a century after his death,  Ivor Gurney is finally celebrated as a poet and a composer. This Gloucester-born tailor’s son thought of himself as both, preferring the term ‘maker’. He was many things beside: soldier, cricketer, crack shot, cake eater, nightwalker, wit,  faithful if exasperating friend and, for the last 17 years of his life, asylum inmate.
