Guest Artists: Great Lakes Graham and the Fiddleman

fiddleman post

On Saint Patrick’s Day I had the honor of reading after the performance of Great Lakes Graham and the Fiddleman at the Skyline Event Center in Comins. It was a lively evening filled to capacity in both music and patrons. Troy Graham is a talented song writer and fellow poet from Marquette, Michigan. His partner on the fiddle, Allen Dupris is get-down and ecstatic in bowmanship and accompanying vocals.
I immensely enjoyed the music and time spent with these guys as tentative plans were bantered about for doing a poetry reading up in Marquette in the near future. I look forward to such a warm welcome.
Troy and I also traded books of verse and I am glad to say I felt a strong connection to his work. He is an excellent poet.
I am delighted to share one of his poems in this post.

Guest Artist, Mary Rensberry

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA            Fowl Art, Nature’s Gifts To Humanity

“Nature in all its glory loves to participate in the aesthetic just like humans do.  In fact, nature was and still is our first artist.”   Mary Rensberry 2010

Mary finds fowl art on the streets of San Francisco created by the street pigeons and seagulls.  Her spirituality and sense of humor shine along with the images.  I will share a few from her books, Fowl Art, Listen, and her upcoming book Fowl Art 2.
