We have no idea what the hell George Farrell was doing.
But we liked it.
Farrell on stage with a drum and a horn reciting poetry.
You get to see it in the second video. That’s Gene Krupa on drum and the legendary Winton Marsalis on the blow. Cool daddyo! Beat that tune out.
Lovely stuff George. We all enjoyed the whole nite. Superb.
Farrell-Followed by a lot of great poets, who come not to praise Dylan.
But to bury him… again, and again and again.
Six. Feet. Boys!
That Far! No Further!
The first video presents a collage and pastiche intertwined with the bluesy strains of another up and coming Montreal poet.
Bobby Bazini. My friend from the Mount! Montreal. But not Westmount! The downtown where the vibes always keep the tune in scribe with the livin’ not dead jibes. Oh Baby Bobby! We thank Bobby for his immersion in the mix.
A poets pool dripping with the bones of some old poets and some new, aging poets.
Thanks to the official and original poets. And thanks to those that came a little later to the eclectic mix.
George Farrell, Doug Pugh, Marjorie Green, John Unrah, Michael Fay, Bob Penfold, Angel Taylor, Richard Taylor, Elaine Repath, Sherri Hawkins, Jack Brezina and Lawrence Ferlinghetti.
The night went to a worthy cause.
Artists in the schools.
Because if we don’t support young artists?
And bring a healthy attitude to our youth?
Dead Poets will be the only legacy.
So support the young poets everywhere.
Get em writing. And loving.
