A small collection of poems, published in conjunction with Universal Home Doctor.

Simon Armitage once said, `Describing yourself as a poet is often seen as a challenge or even an alibi. In those circumstances, it’s worth having a few tunes up your sleeve to prove it.’

In Travelling Songs, Armitage offers just that – a handful of lyrics and verses written over a number of years, many being commissioned to celebrate or commemorate public events, others being part of larger projects in theatre, radio and television. The result is a kind of busker’s handbook, erotic, witty, melodic.
