NELSON LIVE POETS

NELSON LIVE POETS

Nelson Live Poets meet on the third Tuesday of the month. Their next meeting on Tuesday 21 May is at The Prince Albert, 113 Nile Street, Nelson, with guest poet Adrian Higgins.

Adrian is a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, bush poet and cartoonist. He has guested at numerous festivals over the past thirty years, both as a member of the well-known groups Shiner, FfBN and The Barreltones, and as a solo performer. In 2010 he edited and produced From Bard to Verse, a compilation of thirteen contemporary New Zealand bush poets, and his songs have been covered by several artists. While his songs cover a range of topics, his poems tend to the humorous side and draw upon his childhood days growing up in the Buller.

Doors open at 7 pm. Bring a poem to share or just enjoy the show. Singer songwriters are also welcome. To read, simply sign up on the night. Gold coin koha entry. For more information contact Cat Woodward at cat.woodward@outlook.com
