I performed at 3 Friends Coffee House hosted by Show and Tell Gallery march 19. This is the podcast for your enjoyment. What a gift to have a venue like this.
This is a video made at an open mic sponsored by a Portland group known as Colored Pencils. You can find them on the web at coloredpencilsart.com/. There are many video clips of performances at their events on the web site. Colored Pencils is a monthly venue for contemporary painters and traditional poets, Old World sculptors and local performing artists, and world cuisine – but at bottom, we are a vision of a New Portland, an ethos and an aesthetic drawing from our city’s newcomer and settled communities’ enormous joint account of social and cultural capital. Last Fridays of every month our Colored Pencils crew – a vigorous collective of 14 nationalities and ethnicities, five religious traditions, three generations, all gender orientations, our city’s homeless, renters, and home owners – delivers a raucous celebration. Events feature our city’s grandest elders, our tiniest dancers, and everyone in between. A video of people talking about the significance of this organization is on Youtube.
Here is a podcast of a reading I did at 3 Friends Cafe July 11, 2011.
