Save the dates for Season 4: October 21, February 23, April 27 & June 8.
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, Marianne Worthington
Songwriters: Todd Hoke, Jefferson Ross, Zoe Mulford, Raison D'Etre, Friction Farm, Tiffany Williams, Tracy Walker, Lisa Biales
For Season 3, we mainly produced 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 performing selected poems from RIPARIAN, edited by Sherry Cook Stanforth and Richard Hague, 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 was "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.
