Poetry Out Loud in Charleston WV

I'm back and rested up from an amazing Folk Alliance International​ gathering; thanks everyone who made it another memorable and productive conference.   I am now getting ready to head to Charleston WV for the state finals of the Poetry Out Loud Contest, where I have been invited to perform. I am so excited to play for the students involved in this celebration of poetry!  

I am equally excited that West Virginia native, actor/director Chris Sarandon​ (The Princess Bride, Dog Day Afternoons) is going to emcee the event.  I spend many childhood hours watching The Princess Bride and reading the book. Literature, music and film prevail! I am so thankful to be part of such a great event. 

The event is free to the public, and starts at 1pm.  If you're in Charleston, come down and say hi.  More info hereL
