Poetry and Jazz During the Petaluma Poetry Walk


Sign in to view read count
The Petaluma Poetry Walk is an annual event in its 13th year. This year it will take place on September 21 from 10am-7pm. Each hour there is a different stop along the walk in downtown Petaluma, and a poetry reading. The Poet Laureate of California, Al Young, is scheduled to read at 3pm. At 4pm at the Phoenix Theatre, Martha and Tony Mims, of Listen & Be Heard fame, will be the featured act, accompanied by Paul Neal on upright bass and Carltrent, on percussion.

While Listen & Be Heard Poetry Cafe was open in downtown Vallejo, this same group performed a set together every night at 8pm. What takes place is improvisational poetry and jazz, poetic symmetry, jazzoetry, the wedding of words and sounds.
