Band of Poets

Poets take turns

reading poems over improvised jazz, blues, country and percussion. There’s a song or two. Sometimes dance. Expect ballads and hymns, political outrage, Whitman, ghosts of the Beats, edginess and tender Dickinson moments. No promises though – no two shows are alike. We’ve performed at Richard Hugo House in Seattle, the annual Ginsberg Marathon, Rob Schouten Gallery on Whidbey Island, Seattle Bookfest, and the Ballard Public Library in Seattle. Current lineup: John Burgess, Jed Myers, Ted McMahon, Melet Whinston, and Roseanne Olson.
