Phil Monsour is performing tomorrow night (18 August) at Studio 188 in Ipswich along with Theresa Creed Tracey at 7pm.
Free event for the Solidarity Kulture Klub.
Studio 188 is at 188 Brisbane St Ipswich – previously the Baptist Church.
Featured poet is Kalkadoon & Pitta Pitta Elder THERESA CREED-TRACEY and the music artist for the night is PHIL MONSOUR.
In partnership with Solidarity Külture Club, we are proud to present Rhyme, Rhythm and Reason on regular Tuesday evenings at Studio 188.
Offering a mixture of the spoken and sung word, the evening combines text and lyrics. Each month a headline poet will read from and discuss their work, followed by an ‘open mic’ session where audience members are invited to the stage.
Music and song will be woven into an evening that will include favourite poems and audience participation in the chosen works.
