Nicole Young

Local poet Nicole Young will perform selections from her debut spoken word album, In/Put: Live from the Valley with poems that reveal the extremes of hypervisibility  and invisibility living in the Pioneer Valley as Single, Black, Plus-Size and always misidentified.  From reflections on dating, being mis-gendered and just feeling like an outsider, Nicole’s voice is a straight forward one.  

Pan Morigan and The Blackbird Effect 

Vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Pan Morigan is joined by bassist Rudi Weeks in an evening of hopeful, soulful sounds. Bent blues, folk-jazz, and poet-centered improvisations make for highly original work that leaves audiences spellbound.  And as they confidently state, The Blackbird Effect is out to change the weather in your heart!
