Hello GB Live Poets friends and supporters,
Our very own Mark Raffills will take to the poetry stage for the Golden Bay Live Poets December gathering, with music from Nick Feint. Join us on Thursday, December 15th for an evening of music and words from the heart.
Mark Raffills, a finalist in the NZ Poetry Slam 2011 and 2015, Mark has shared the stage with the likes of Hone Tu Whare, Rachel Bush and David Eggleton. Reviewer Matt Bowler wrote of Raffills, ”The live poet is obvious; the words have both a lyrical and rhythmic quality. There is a depth to the poetry but at the same time, its heart is on its sleeve.” Mark, who has performed throughout NZ, agrees. “It’s what I do pretty much, wear my heart on my sleeve, hang my poems and stories out for all to see; tell them raw, so to speak!”
Nick Feint will open the evening with a range of original songs and eclectic covers featuring social commentary and spiritual comment delivered with a dry humor.
Love to see you at GB Live Poets, on Thursday 15 December - kicking off at 7.45 p.m
Open mic poets and singers can register on the night. Koha entry.
