Experience thirteenth-century mystical poet Rumi as you never have beforethrough the resonant, whiskey-and-syrup voice of Coleman Barks, a preeminent poet, scholar, and celebrated interpreter of Rumi's work. He is bard in the truest sense of the word. Coleman's extraordinary recitation is gracefully accompanied by the music of David Darling, a Grammy-winning artist who connects the earthy incense of Rumi's words with the celestial strings of the cello. In this exquisite performance, Heaven and Earth unite in one of the most stunningly beautiful expressions of music and poetry that you will ever experience.

Coleman Barks was born and raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and was educated at the University of North Carolina and the University of California at Berkeley. He taught poetry and creative writing at the University of Georgia for thirty years. Coleman is the author of numerous Rumi translations and has been a student of Sufism since 1977. His work with Rumi was the subject of an hour-long segment in Bill Moyers's Language of Life series on PBS, and he is a featured poet and translator in Bill Moyers's poetry special, "Fooling with Words." He is the father of two grown children and the grandfather of four. He lives in Athens, Georgia. http://www.colemanbarks.com/

David Darling - "Maverick cellist" is the phrase most often assigned to Grammy-winning artist David Darling, but it hardly captures the richness, diversity, breadth and sense of humor of a man who literally redefines the way the cello is played and the way music is taught. His prolific collection of recordings and innovative performance style represent an eclectic variety of musical genres. His playful and unconventional teaching methods have helped open the world of music and improvisation to thousands of individuals.

Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi was a Persian poet who lived during the 13th century. Rumi was an avid believer in the power of music, poetry, and dance as a direct path to God. Whether you are Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, or Muslim, Rumi's prolific descriptions of love, devotion, and divine illumination cut through the layers of religious dogma, cultural belief, and historic circumstance, leading us all to the mystical core that silently waits within every major spiritual tradition.

Do not miss this romantic February event!
