Venue: Caught by the River, on Saturday.

Ted Kessler is a music journalist who has worked extensively for Q and the NME. In 2016 Canongate published My Old Man, a book of paternal reflections edited by Ted — including recollections of fathers from Tilda Swinton, Rod Stewart and the sons and daughters of Leonard Cohen and Ian Dury. Ted lives in London with his partner and their kids, and is currently working on two new books. At Port Eliot he will talk to Squeeze’s Chris Difford and Ceri Levy about their dads (the latter’s, amongst other things, a childhood friend of Dylan Thomas).
