The Intersection of Poetry and Song

Rosanne Cash, Joe Henry
Performance and Conversation
June 20, 2016

Like dreams, poetry and song enter our lives by way of a mystery—unrecognized and often uninvited. Both represent the speaking of the otherwise unspeakable: the place where real truth is unencumbered by fact, time is made elastic, and narrative emerges from the abstract to tell us something of who we are. Discover this special evening of music and conversation with two leading voices, when songwriters and authors Rosanne Cash and Joe Henry (both multi-GRAMMY Award winners) reflected on the transcendence of language through poetry and song.
