Poetry, Music and Social Change, November 19, 2017

9:15 am. In his song Ebb and Flow, JP Falcon Grady sings: “Another day comes shining for you and me. To see Mt. Baker smiling over the Salish Sea. Come look at the islands, we’ve got an orca’s view. So much to see here. So much to do.” Come to the Sunday forum on Nov. 19th  at 9:15 a.m. to hear poet Betty Scott and JP Falcon Grady as they offer a rocking hour of music and poetry. We’ll talk, we’ll sing, we’ll play with words, and experience how collaborations can expand our conversations in an ever-changing social and physical environment.

JP Falcon Grady is a self taught acoustic guitarist, singer, songwriter and a proud member of the Blackfeet Nation. He performs originals and covers all over the Pacific Northwest, Montana, Hawaii and British Columbia as both a solo artist and with the J.P. Falcon Band. His original songs and ballads tell stories that beg to be told and include celebrating biodiversity and Mother Earth.

Betty Scott is a poet and essayist who enjoys collaborating with JP Falcon Grady. She is writing a third collection of poems and a book of essays. Her collection Central Heating: Poems that Celebrate Love, Loss and Planet Earth will be published in 2018 by Cave Moon Press. Currently, she and JP provide an open mic for music with poetry on Wednesday nights from 6:30 to 9:00 at Greene’s Corner, 2208 James Street.
