“Un Auròst” —with Michael Bisio on bass— at Poetry Project New Year’s Day Benefit Reading.

This tri-lingual piece was written with words from three sources. Most come via Maria Blanca (1765-1849), the last aurostaira or professional mourner — a soothsayer, in fact, & even more so a “truth-sayer.” Maria Blanca was from the Vallée d’Aspa in the French Pyrenees. The other words come via Marcabrun (1130-1150), one of the earliest troubadours & finally some are my own.

Heads up!
The full schedule of upcoming events will come up in a few weeks but save the dates for:

Nicole Peyrafitte & Sunnylynn Thibodeaux at The Poetry Project —Wednesday February 25th 8PM —Michael Bisio will be also part of my reading/performance .

& back by popular demand: the Cabaret Hérétique w/ Adrian Cohen on piano on Sunday March 8 8:30PM at Bowery Arts & Science
