Event

Los Lorcas
In the spirit of Federico Garcia Lorcagifted musician, legendary poet/playwright and ebullient performerpoets Partridge Boswell and Peter Money, along with guitarist Nat Williams, fuse poetry and music in a spirited and surprising mash-up. Los Lorcas blur boundaries between spoken word and song, weaving poetry with Andalusian ballads, blues, rock, folk, Americana and jazz in pursuit of the cante jondo (deep song) Lorca so passionately championed.

Partridge Boswells poem Flying Home after the Protest won the 2017 Edna St. Vincent Millay Poetry Prize. His first book, Some Far Country, received the Grolier Poetry Prize: Such desperate beauty in these poems, remarks Marie Howe, such rendered and willed surviving. Read this book if you want to remember what poetry can do to us, how it can find words for what cant be said and shake us by our shoulders until we feel achingly alive again. His work has recently appeared in The American Poetry Review, The Gettysburg Review, Salmagundi, Green Mountains Review, Haydens Ferry Review and Poetry East, as well as on Vermont Public Radio. Lyricist and vocalist of the band The Cows, Boswell is a co-founder of Bookstock Literary Festival and teaches at Burlington Writers Workshop.  

Poet/editor/teacher Peter Moneys books of poetry include hybrid works such as the prose-poem sequence with Saadi Youssef,To day- minutes only(2004); the poetry/music collaboration Blue Square(2007);Che: A Novella In Three Parts (2010); a book of translations, with Sinan Antoon, of the Arab Modernist Saadi Youssef (2012); and his most recent volume, American Drone (2013), which poet Baron Wormser calls a full-bore, straight-up, flat-out necessary charge to the poet in these global/electronic times. His poems have appeared in numerous publications, including in the City Lights anthology Days I Moved Through Ordinary Sound, as well as on Garrison Keillors The Writers Almanac. Moneys work has also been translated into Spanish in Ultramar Literatura. A student of Allen Ginsberg, he has taught at Lebanon College and the Center for Cartoon Studies.
