WORD X WORD FESTIVAL 8/23/10!

 

“Coming soon to this Berkshires city: A nine-day antidote to the texting, verbing, and jargoning that threaten to reduce our language to a series of ungainly and perfunctory twitters,” – David Filipov, The Boston Globe.

Next Tuesday night I'll be performing at the Word x Word Fest held in Pittsfield, MA. Headliners include musical acts Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers, Langhorne Slim, Mike & Ruthy, and spoken word performers Derrick Brown and Rives. They all are among the 60 plus performers who will be in downtown Pittsfield Aug. 21- 29 for the second annual festival, a celebration of words written, spoken, and sung. Pittsfield has become a great town for music in the Berkshires, something the organizers of this festival have clearly tapped into. I hope you can check out the festival and make our set at The Lantern on Tuesday night.
