RED POETRY: Celebrating the mythic power of wine and poetry – Friday, May 27th

In the intimate setting of our Winery, join us to share a very special, poet inspired night.

The spoken word, our oldest form of collective story telling, is an art that takes single words and weaves together a tapestry of meaning that exceeds the sum of the parts. Winemaking shares this same transcendence, taking the humble grape, grown on simple soil, under the warmth of the Sun and in the hands of a master-craftsman builds a vessel of sublime character.

Featuring readings of poems and songs of wine by:

Bob Holmam ("Dean of the Scene"-Seventeen Magazine, founder of Bowery Poetry Club)

Gerald Stern (Wallace Stevens Award, Bess Hokin Award from Poetry,Academy of American Poets)

Anne Marie Marcari (The American Poetry Review, author, poet)

Ross Gay (American Poetry Review, Cave Canem Workshop Fellow)

Jeff Friedman (5 published collections of poetry via Carnegie-Mellon)

Romy Ashby, (editor of Goodie Magazine, Wa;lker in the City, poet)

Lee Rinaldo (member of Sonic Youth, painter, and poet)

and Roy Nathanson (composer & co-leader Jazz Passengers, poet)

Delve into the alchemy of Roy Nathanson’s Sotto Voce band featuring beatboxer Napoleon Maddox, Tim Kian, Sam Bardfeld and Curtis Fowlkes. A rowdy drunken explosion of words and wine, imbibed to the tune of the universe.

City Winery will also be launching a line of RED Poetry wines, with original verse inspired by the wines gracing the labels of these limited edition wines.

Tickets only $35 -The general admission ticket includes a glass of wine
