...was the name of the wonderful event hosted by Buz and Sarah Trevor of Denare Beach last night. I was delighted when Sarah approached me with the idea earlier this spring. It was a full house and a perfect space. The sound was incredible.
The evening opened with Mystic Lake Road Corridor, a new suite of poems that I decided to take for a test drive at this event as the setting is specific to this place. After each of the ten poems, San Francisco's Andrew Voight, an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, composer and improviser, responded to the poems with improvisations. He was brilliant. I loved the way the bass flute worked with the rural gothic nature of my work.
After the intermission, San Francisco singer-songwriter Lori B took the stage and delighted the audience with her performance. It was a show perfectly suited for intimate home concerts. The audience was lively and interactive.
Hats off to Buz and Sarah Trevor for bringing this together. It was truly wonderful.
