York Reads 2014 - The Maltese Falcon
Gillard and Curt Bessette & Jenn Kurtz
Sunday March 16
Maria Gillard is a respected singer
and songwriter from the Finger Lakes Region of
New York State. Best known as a folk musician,
she also includes jazz, swing, and blues in her
repertoire. Her compelling voice and lyrics
head straight for the heart. She tells stories
through her music in ways that are soul
stirring, evocative, contagious, lively and
energizing. Local favorites, Curt and Jenn will
play some old favorite original tunes, some new
songs from their new CD project...and some
selections from their WWII Tribute show.
Please bring poems to share, either
your own or favorite poems by someone else. The
prompt for March is ‘at sea’. The topic is open
for interpretation. Readings from poetry books
are welcome. Readings occur in round table
format and are facilitated by Priscilla Cookson.
