The MWPA presents Poetry Rocks with Dave Morrison on Tuesday, September 9 at 6:00 p.m. in Portland as part of the Friends of Congress Square Park’s summer series.
Before settling in coastal Maine and publishing nine books of poetry, Dave Morrison spent years playing guitar in rock & roll bars in Boston and New York City. Poetry Rocks merges Morrison’s life on the stage with his life on the page as his poems cross the thin rope bridge of simple guitar grooves.
Poetry Rocks is not songs, and not exactly poems. Morris delivers his poems over simple looping guitar grooves—created from scratch for the audience in real time—that serve as distinct musical frames for each poem.
The MWPA is proud to collaborate with SPACE Gallery and the Friends of Congress Square Park on this event. Congress Square Park is directly across the street from the Portland Museum of Art.
