Poets & Poetry ~ A ghost of this and a slam of that, with a little sexy to top it all off.

From the serious to the slam to the silly to the sublime songs about for and by poets.

Does poetry ever haunt you? No? What’s that song you can’t get out of your head? What are lyrics without music?

What poets and poetry do–or aspire to do.  Or not so much.  Still, 1874 connects with  1979–poetry travels through time much like Dr. Who.

We Are the Movers and Shakers

Seattle Poetry Slam –Define Music

seattlepoetryslam

 

Rachel Rocky Bernstein’s unique blend of music and poetry has been delighting audiences since she started in slam at age 17.

She was a member of the 2006 Youth Speaks Seattle slam team, taking 4th in the Brave New Voices international competition, and coach of the 2010 Seattle Collegiate slam team which placed in the top ten. This year, she will be representing Seattle at the National Poetry Slam, and is honored to be on a team with greats Tara Hardy, Karen Finneyfrock and Maya Hersh.

Rachel is also an elementary school music teacher and spends her days singing, dancing, inspiring, and playing music with kids . Seattle will be sad to see her go this August when she moves to Barcelona, Spain to teach music at an International School and pursue her life-long passion for opera. http://www.seattlepoetryslam.org

    What a trip. “Walt Whitman’s Niece” is the best. Mr. Cohen is always great too. Great mix, Eva. :)
