Without poetry, we lose our way.—Joy Harjo, U.S. Poet Laureate & Academy of American Poets Chancellor (2019– ) and Sometimes it only takes one song to bring back a thousand memories
Join us for a virtual celebration of poems and songs as we look to Spring, new beginnings and new hope! It’s another Open Mic Night for Poetry, songs and spoken word with celebrated songwriter and poet, Austin MacRae, whose award winning songs and poetry have made him a regional favorite.
Shimmering lyrics, deft finger-picking and soaring melodies—Ithaca’s Austin MacRae is a troubadour whose songwriting is characterized by poetic lyrics and poignant stories from rural upstate NY.
Austin will share his poetry and songs and participants are encouraged to bring their own poetry, songs and spoken word to share! Participants are encouraged to invite their friends and family to enjoy the variety of performance talent and creation. This program is open to all ages, but is limited to 40 participants. Please contact the library at email@example.com for the zoom link information.
