Open Mic Event
Just Poets offer you poetry, prose, folk song and the fun of making it up on the spot. We have rant and rhyme, monologue and dialogue, and we move from Yeats and his mythologies to Keats’ copies of everything he fancied. We listen to the poetic precision of “laughing Lenny” Cohen and to the street – speak of Tom Waits.
These sessions are good for the soul, and are always uplifting. The upstairs room has a great atmosphere and the last session turned into a beautifully intimate chat about the power of poetry, interspersed by strong examples of that power from the likes of The Rochdale Ranter, and from Clare, a sweet rapper, and from Michael and Paul and Keith, Val and Pam and Danny and Katie and Julia. Hosts, Just Poets, offer you History re-written in Robin’s parodies, and homage to songwriters like Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt from Norm.
