French philosopher Voltaire said, Poetry is the music of the soul, and above all, of great and feeling souls. But that was in the Eighteenth Century. Today poetry is about as popular among the general masses as French wine was during the runup to the Iraq War.
But combining music with poetry is one way of spreading the literary art form to those tone-deaf souls, and that is what Luna Star Café plans to do tonight at 8:00 with Poetry and Music: A Sound Experiment. The free event will feature South Florida poet Campbell McGrath; experimental musician extraordinaire Gustavo Matamoros; and Michael and Matthew Hettich, a father-son duo.
Tue., Jan. 17, 8 p.m.
