Think music. Think concert. Think performance. Think poetry. On June 24th from 7-9 P.M., five Juneau poets with live music accompaniment will take the stage at Rockwell Ballroom for Woosh Kinaadeiyí’s annual Summer Showcase. The five poets-Erika Bergren, Austin Naawéiyaa Tagaban, Cate Ross, Lily Hope, and Christy NaMee Eriksen- were selected to showcase poetry as a performance art. The event will feature local musician Jacob Pickard who has crafted unique music scores for each poet’s performance.
