Riverbend Poetry Series Event #3 – featuring Suzanne Jones

There is just under two weeks left until the final event in the Riverbend Poetry Series for 2010. The CD – A Million Bright Things – is now complete and at the printers and the launch is shaping up to be something special. The launch will feature members of the QPF Committee reading a selection of poems from the CD as well as guest performances from Zenobia Frost & Adam Phillips who feature on the CD and Rob Morris, Sheish Money & myself reprising the Vegemite Song (that’s right, this Lost Shark gets to sit behind the kit one more time!).

The CD launch alone will be worth the $10 entry fee, but we are finishing the 2010 series with a bang, launching the 2010 QPF program with readings from the QPF Committee and three of this years featured artists Ynes Sanz, Darkwing Dubs, and the enchanting Suzanne Jones.

Here’s a taste of what Suzanne Jones will bring to the Riverbend Deck:

Set against a backdrop of guitar, keyboard and original electronic soundscapes, poetess and singer songwriter Suzanne Jones weaves words via a tapestry of spoken word narratives and music. Two time finalist in the Nimbin Performance Poetry World Cup she has been published in the likes of Going Down Swinging, Page Seventeen, Stylus, Cordite, Black Mail Press, Cottonmouth, and Spoken in One Strange Word; she has also featured at WordFood at Woodford Folk Festival, Queensland Poetry Festival and the Australian Poetry Slam; Suzanne is a founding member and committee member of  QLD’s premier experimental spoken word collective ouTsideRs.

Suzanne recently had two poems featured in issue #37 of Stylus Poetry Journal which I am hosting so you can read a sample of her work there or visit: www.myspace.com/suzanne_jones to find out more.
