Folking Poetry at The Blend

Walt Disney believed that storytellers restore order through imagination. There is no doubt that both music and poetry are forms of storytelling and are very closely connected. Both art forms are wildly creative and require imagination to create, perform and, very often, fully understand. Folking Poetry, launching on the 15th of October at The Blend on Roeland Street, provides the platform for skilled writers and talented musicians to perform and to showcase their work in front of fantastic Mother City audience. It’s the opportunity for amateurs and professionals to join forces in the name of fun, food, music and good times.
