Saints and Sinners will be the theme of Dangerously Poetic’s first reading for 2013. The community is invited to enjoy an afternoon of poetry and music on March 17 (St Patrick’s Day) from 3 to 5 pm. It will be held at the RSL Hall, Fawcett Street, Brunswick Heads.
Featured singer/songwriter is Elisabeth Lord, whose versatile voice has won awards and accolades in stage musicals, country music and jazz for over 30 years. ABC Radio’s Fiona Wiley described Elizabeth as ‘Mother Earth with a voice’. In recent years, she had been focusing more on her original material, winning an award for her composition Zonti’s Blues in the North Coast Entertainment Industry Dolphin Awards. In July 2012 Elizabeth sang one of her songs, Lifting the Veil, at the United Nations in New York and by invitation at New York’s Baha’i Centre, also performing at The Guthrie Centre in Massachusetts and Notre Dame Cathedral in Montreal.
Phillipa Williams, originally from the UK, a theatre practitioner and psychophonetics counsellor, will be a featured reader as will Lorrie Cruikshank, actress with Byron’s Fourth Wall Theatre. All poets and poetry lovers are invited to bring along their own favourite poem on the theme to share at the open mike. Devonshire Tea with homemade scones will be included in the price of $12/$10 for the afternoon. Everyone is welcome.
