JAM on the Marsh: Jonty Driver and Peter Fields, The Journey Back – Poetry and Music

Jonty Driver returns to the festival to recite his sequence of poems, The Journey Back , first published in the 1990s, about his return visit to South Africa after thirty years of enforced exile. This follows his acclaimed readings for JAM on the Marsh of the sequences, Requiem, in 2015, and Before in 2016.

In August and September 1964, Jonty Driver was detained by the South African security police in solitary confinement, ostensibly on suspicion of his involvement in the African Resistance Movement, actually more because he had been the outspoken President of the anti-apartheid National Union of South African Students. In 1992, Jonty returned to South Africa and recorded the experience in The Journey Back, a “travel book in verse” .

In between the poems, Peter Fields will be playing on Jonty’s own violin (made by the Brothers Carcassi in Florence in 1751) Corelli’s variations known as “La Folia”.

Admission to the recital is free, though there will be a collection for the Hantam Community Education Trust in the Karoo.

JAM on the Marsh: London Mozart Players / Daniel Cook / Michael Bawtree


One of the UK’s finest chamber orchestras, The London Mozart Players made their JAM on the Marsh debut last year, alongside the Mousai Singers, conducted by Daniel Cook, performing amongst others the world premiere of Paul Mealor’s The Shadows of War to a packed audience. This year Michael Bawtree takes over the baton and Daniel Cook moves to the organ bench for a totally unique concert, during which they will perform the Poulenc Organ Concerto, Judith Bingham’s Jacob’s Ladder and Albinoni’s Adagio on three different organs from France, England and Holland! This has never been done before, and will give the audience the extraordinary opportunity of hearing these pieces performed on the appropriate organ, in one concert. Elgar’s Introduction and Allegro and Sibelius’ Rakastava complete this captivating programme.
