Poetry Album makes the Georgia Straight's Best of Issue
Posted: Friday, September 21, 2012 at 10:32am
Singer-songwriter and poet Rodney DeCroo has made the Georgia Straight's Best-Of Issue, for his most recent album featuring poems from his book, Allegheny, BC (Nightwood Editions, $18.95).
This collection contains over forty poems and takes his already impressive body of work in a new and captivating direction. To hear Rodney reciting these poems on his album is a rare chance to witness the emergence of beauty from an abrasive world.
In October, Rodney will be touring Western Canada with stand-up bass player Mark Haney. Look for him in Creston, Rossland, Nelson, Coleman, Nanton, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina and Winnipeg. See our events calendar for details.
DeCroo will be launching his book and performing his poetry in Vancouver on Saturday, September 22 at the Little Mountain Gallery (Main St. and 26th Avenue).
Doors are at 7:45, the show starts at 8:15.
