Published on 9 Dec 2016

Laurence Kermode performs some of his favourite Manx dialect poetry:

1) 'The First Man to Fly in the Isle of Man' - Anon. The aspirations of a simple man turn out to be more complicated than her first anticipated ... poor oul John Billy Dan!

2) An extract from 'The Schoolmasters' by T E Brown

This live recording was made at the Manks Concert, hosted by the Manx branch of the Celtic Congress, Peel Centenary Centre, 1 February 2014.
