New season at the microphone
Winter is on the retreat, they say. Gathering her white skirts about her and heading across the lake to some other shore. There is blossom on the plum tree and as Buffy Sainte-Marie sings, ‘… the seasons they go round and round…and we are captive on the carousel of time…’. It is now the turn of spring to court us with some sort of rebirth, to lavish us with a new song as we emerge from the cold places where we have sojourned for a while.
And we are looking forward to a great season of new songs and poems, and stories and provocations as we gather round the microphone with our hearts and voices intact. We welcome back the Dangerous Kitchen crew from their well-deserved winter break and look forward to cranking up the Dangerous Microphone once again on Wednesday 30 August. Acid on the Microphone is looking great for September and so too Moonshine on the Microphone. Monday night singalong at The Mussel Inn is taking a break until 7 October while Craig tends to some overseas gigs.
It will be great to meet up at one of our fabulous open microphone evenings in September. Join us on the carousel of time, give thanks and praise for the new season and let’s sing a new song as best we can.
Love and peace
