Our Poet & Song house concert series takes place at Falcon Theatre on select dates between October and June. House concerts are by invitation events where all proceeds go to the performers, so this is primarily our labor of love to present touring songwriters we have met through our Folk Alliance membership over the years.  Each concert will feature a 20 minute reading from a local/regional poet plus a 45 minute set of original song from the touring artist.  So far, we have presented:

Poets:  Kelly Thomas, Pauletta Hansel, Karen George, George Ella Lyon, Taunja Thomson, Jerry Judge, Teri Foltz

Songwriters: Todd Hoke, Jefferson Ross, Zoe Mulford, Raison D'Etre, Friction Farm, Tiffany Williams, Tracy Walker

Our next show will be June 16 with poet, Marianne Worthington and songwriter, Lisa Biales

This season we are mainly producing local poets and organizations because of Covid restrictions.  In October, we held an anniversary event to celebrate 90 years of poetry with Greater Cincinnati Writer's League poets and 30 years of song with Raison D'Etre.  In March, we presented readers' theatre with Falcon Takes Flight. April brought Teri Foltz with her brand new collection of poems and Tracy Walker with her catalog of songs. Our final show for the season is "Girl Singer Night" with Marianne Worthington reading from her Weatherford Award winning collection, THE GIRL SINGER and Lisa Biales sharing her wondrous voice and songs. RSVP as usual, donations accepted through PayPal and cash at the door.  ***We follow Falcon Theatre's current Covid protocol in that all audience members must mask and no food or drink is currently permitted in the theatre.  See Falcon's updated guidelines for more info.*** 

RSVPs for each concert are accepted at the Contact Page on this website. We will send you a confirmation and parking directions for the theatre.  Our suggested donation is $20 so that both the poet and songwriter receive some compensation for their performance.  However, we will accept whatever cash donation you can afford at the door. We want you to enjoy these wonderful artists. You can also use PayPal if you prefer.
