Poetry and Song Series

The Falcon Theatre, 636 Monmouth Street, Newport, KY 41071

Our Poet & Song house concert series takes place at Falcon Theatre on select dates between October and June. House concerts are by invitation events where all proceeds go to the performers, so this is primarily our labor of love to present touring songwriters we have met through our Folk Alliance membership over the years. Each concert will feature a 20 minute reading from a local/regional poet plus a 45 minute set of original songs from the touring artist. https://raison3.com/poet-song-series

Pinetop Perkins Workshop Experience

Hopson Plantation, Clarksdale, MS

Lisa Biales returns as vocal coach to give private tutorials to each student. For piano, guitar, bass, drums and harmonica, professional Blues musicians will present the music and techniques for playing it. Sorry, no beginning students allowed. Everyone needs to already have a basic knowledge of their instrument. We won't be starting from scratch. Any musician who has been playing seriously for a year or so should be able to make a lot of progress in his or her Blues playing. We require at least two years experience for piano workshop participants. Workshops are open to the young and young at heart - adults welcome! Scholarships are available for youth ages 12 to 21.
