Belated Photo Review of
The DINKUM BOHOS.
“LOST PHOTOS” FOUND LINING BUDGIE CADGE!
Here without further ado are the long lost “Missing Photo”‘s promised some time ago, of the celebrated return to West End of Poet & Songstress extrodinaire, Ms Vasudha Harte, and her Musical partner in all crimes music, and all Terrorism cultural, Mr Jem Edwards.
What can I say? Of the Dinkum Boho’s themselves, they were brilliant. We were privileged to have them appear at our humble gathering. they deserved more money and a bigger audience but they played their hearts out anyway and delivered their best like true professionals.
Of Ms Hartes poetry one can say that it is wise without trying to be clever, warm without being melodramatic, simple without being banal. It bears repeated listening/reading, and we at Kurilpa Poets once more heartily recommend her slim volume of verse, the whimsically entitled You Near Verse.
This was our last event for now at the Kurilpa Hall and we’ve had some fun here the last two months. I for one will miss the crank old piano, that only Cam Logan was game enough to play and make sing! As always the Open Mic sessions added heart and soul to the occasions,
with old faces and new trying their compositions out on the attentive crowd.
As always a generous community contributed food and drink to make a fabulous feast.
Next month our host is West End Community House,
but wherever the Kurilpa Poets sets up its camp,
you know that that’s there will be where fine verse, fine music,
fine food and fine company can be found…
