Golden Bay Live Poets

Thursday 22nd September - 7.30pm


Apirana Taylor is our guest at the first session of Golden Bay Live Poets for our 2016-17 season. Apirana works extensively to promote Maori artists and writing and has won several awards for his writing. He reads internationally as well as nationally, invited to present his work at the Medillen International Poetry Festival in Colombia, South America, as well as India and Europe. His poems and short stories have been translated into German, Italian, Spanish, Norwegian and Russian. Apirana Taylor could be regarded as a totara among New Zealand poets.


Pat Riddett. Adding to the fare of fine words and rhyme will be our local Pat Riddett, a self-professed “incurable collector and purveyor of fine tunes.” Pat last performed at the Mussel Inn in May, and it was a beautiful rendition of Bob Dylan's 'Boots and Spanish Leather'. We are in for a rare treat!


Open MicThe legendary open mic sessions will again be the hallmark of Live Poets in the 2016-2017 season. New and seasoned performers alike are given the opportunity to present their poems and songs to the delight and entertainment of the audience. Poets and singers can register on the night.

Love to see you at GB Live Poets, on Thursday 22 September - kicking off at 7.30 pm.

Koha entry.
