The Double Yews at the Poetry Project

I'm looking forward to January 1, 2016, when the Double Yews (me, Annabel Lee, plus Randy Weinstein on harmonica and Ellen Waterscheid on piano and vocals) will perform two short poems, by Susie Timmons & Frank O'Hara, set to music, as part of the Poetry Project's 42nd annual New Year's Day 12-hour marathon. This is the most fun day on the poetry calendar, with dozens of performers presenting 2 minutes of work. You see lots of friends & luminaries, eat Bob Rosenthal's chili, Gillian McCain's oreo truffles, and find out what's new new new.

We go on in the 2–3 hour. Be there or be you know what.
