Poetry Magazine Release Party

March 29, 2012 @ 8:00 pm - 12:00 am


Songwriters Reid Coker and Kennedy Greenrod perform with musicians Saleem Dhamee, Jason Labrosse, Alan Scalpone, and Seth Vanek as “Billy Blake and the Vagabonds” for a concert of William Blake’s Songs of Innocence and of Experience. Billy Blake and the Vagabonds have created a thoroughly modern interpretation of Blake, drawing from folk, pop, country, and gospel music to New Orleans drum line with a Bo Diddely beat. Join Poetry editors for a debut of this song cycle, and for a reception before and after the show.

Come, eyes, see more than you see!
For the world within and the outer world
rejoice as one. The seminal brain
contains the lineaments of eternity.
“Two Dicta of William Blake: Variations,” by Robert Duncan
Poetry, December 1961
