If you were to match a musician with a poet for an evening of culture and entertainment, who would they be?
A month ago I noticed this ad:Who wouldn’t want to attend this event? Two great artists on one stage for one evening. Makes sense to me.
Acoustic music and poetry fit together. Nearly a decade ago, I participated at a bookstore café event with musicians. It is something I really enjoyed doing. The marriage of poetry and music resonates with an audience—especially an audience who does not know that they might enjoy poetry.
A few years ago, the Rooftop Poets (somewhat legendary) roof garden book launch and poetry performance featured jazz to accompany an evening of poetry. Three poets and two musicians joined for a lively evening of poetry, music and light refreshments.
What about you? As a poet, who would you love to work with for an evening of acoustic music and poetry? I have my wish list. What about you?
