FlowPoetry: Nevergone, #49
The New Year brings us all another time around the wheel on a ride that is filled with so much of what has been and what is to come. I hope that for all of you 2017 will be filled with joy and peace and that you and yours will hold each other tightly and step together into the newness of each moment with open hearts and open minds.
Thank you all for following FlowPoetry throughout this series. The next entry after this one will be the 50th installment of FlowPoetry for Sensible Reason and after that I will be taking a break and focusing on live performances for a while. Please stay in touch and find me here: facebook.com/flowpoetry. Without you to listen, I am simply shouting in the dark.
FlowPoetry is the originator of Jam Poetry. This is straight up spoken word performance. One man, one mic and poems and stories woven together reflecting themes of America and the music festival experience.
FlowPoetry has performed over 1100 shows in the USA with bands and as a solo poet and appeared at over 50 Midwest and East Coast Music and Arts festivals. He was honored as a finalist for the MNSWA “Urban Griot” International/National Performer of the year alongside Leonard Cohen and Saul Williams. In 2014, 2015, and 2016, FlowPoetry was selected by popular vote as one of Madison (Wisconsin) Magazine’s Best Spoken Word/Poetry Performers. He is a three-time finalist for Best Artist in the Annual Madison WI Area Music Awards.
In addition to his performances, FlowPoetry is featured prominently alongside Ken and Zane Kesey, Alex Grey, Wavy Gravy, and Nahko and Medicine For The People in the forthcoming documentary “Going Furthur” which chronicles the 50thAnniversary cross country tour of The Furthur Bus. He has published extensively on-line and in print.
