Poets Off the Page: Poetry & Music

Poetry

Interviewed by: Angela Elam

Catalog Number: 20150710, 20130111

This compilation features very different approaches to intertwining poetry and music, resulting in equally different performances.  It includes work by Missouri Poet Laureate (2012-2014) William Trowbridge with musician Bob Walkenhorst in their presentation of Ship of Fool: The Musical. Tony Barnstone talks about revising his poetry to set with music by the folk duo Genuine Brandish called Tokyo’s Burning: World War II Songs. Anika Paris, who won a 2012 Hola Award for the musical drama Temple of the Souls, discusses the differences between writing poetry and crafting lyrics and shares a little of her pop music as well.
