Poets Express announces guest performers!
Bantry, Co. Cork, Ireland - 15 June 2009 - Poets Express is pleased to announce the list of special guest performers appearing on 11 July 2009 in Bantry, West Cork, Ireland. Manchester (UK) performance poet, experimental sound artist and novelist AndyN; internationally known performance poetry troupe Scream Blue Murmur from Northern Ireland; poet, author, and journalist Derek Fanning from County Offaly; international actor, writer, and performance poet Cah-44; poet and non-visual and visual conceptual video artist VisionGhost from Dublin; poet and artist Dale Mawhinney from Belfast; and poet and video artist Tomas O Carthaigh from County Offaly are all scheduled for the evening.
Hosted by international performance artist, poet, and author Kylyra from Dark World International, Poets Express aims to provide the audience with a full variety of performance poetry from the beginner to seasoned stage performers, as well as a wide selection of poetic styles. "I carefully chose the special guests for the evening," according to Kylyra. "Tomas (O Carthaigh) and Derek (Fanning) both represent the very best of Irish poetry; their words capture the history, the landscape, and the spirituality of Ireland. VisionGhost's work has an epic, gothic nature to it, and AndyN's easy flowing, often quirky poetry will be an excellent contrast. Cah-44 has a hard hitting, syncopated rhyming style with an urban feel, while Dale Mawhinney paints free verse poetic images with his words that are as striking as his paintings. Scream Blue Murmur's spoken words, music, chants, and beats are sure to rock the audience from their seats, and I'll be adding my own upbeat theatrical style to the night as well."
