Poetry Live 28 June 8pm – 11pm at Thirsty Dog
with guest musician Karen Hunter / Hunter Karen
and guest poet Jack Ross
Hunter (alias Karen Hunter) is a superb musician with an extensive history of playing all around New Zealand. Equally comfortable in poetry and song, Hunter is a favourite at Poetry Live – and with good reason. More information can be found at www.karenhunter.com. For example: Hunter’s work can be described as gritty jazz/folk. Songs are infused with dirty blues grooves using spoken word poetry and jazz scatting, creating dynamic memorable performances. Hunter’s primary instruments are vocals and acoustic guitar, incorporating rhythmic backing tracks using percussive loops made with ‘found objects’, guitar and voice.
Secret guest poet no longer secret!!! JACK ROSS will be reading from his LATEST BOOK – Scenes from The Puppet Oresteia. More info at: http://mairangibay.blogspot.com/2011/06/reading-tomorrow.html
This is going to be SUCH a good night.
