Distant Voices: Iceland, Norway, Viking Merseyside

by Sylvia Hikins
£4.99   paperback  Songster (2016)

Distant Voices: Iceland, Norway, Viking Merseyside by Sylvia Hikins Sylvia Hikins is a poet, painter, author and music maker who has appeared widely on the poetry circuits, including the Edinburgh Fringe and has broadcast on radio and television. For seven years presenter of First Friday on BBC Radio Merseyside, she then, jointly with Dave Ward, judged and edited the 800 line Liverpool Saga, sponsored by Phil Redmond and the Liverpool Echo in celebration of the 800th year of Liverpool's Charter. Drawn to Iceland and Norway, Sylvia is also a prodigious painter of wild landscapes with recent solo exhibitions at the Gallery Ofeigur in Reykjavik, The Chester Grosvenor Museum, Liverpool's Nordic Church, the Williamson Art Gallery and Museum, Wirral, and the Castle Park Arts Centre, Frodsham.
 
Sylvia writes: 'Painting, writing, poetry is one way I respond to the world around me. Listen, look, feel. Nature is at the heart of our creative thoughts. When I stare out into the Mersey Estuary I hear the distant voices of our Viking ancestors, see those wild expanses of ice, fire, mountain, sea and a sky full of dancing Northern Lights.'
