Ottawa’s Poets’ Pathway project is developing an urban green-space walk through the landscapes made memorable by the Confederations Poets at the end of the 19th century. The path winds from Britannia Beach on the Ottawa River to the Beechwood Cemetery, resting place of Ottawa poets from Archibald Lampman to John Newlove. On Monday, November 30, at 8 pm, I will be part of a celebration of music and poetry at MacKay United Church. Here is the notice from Poets’ Pathway
Mark your calendars. We have musicians singing poetry, and poets performing with music; the mood will be dramatic in MacKay United Church in New Edinburgh for an hour or so Monday night, Nov. 30.
We are so lucky to have these artists. The poets are Susan McMaster, Colin Morton, Michel Therien, Ronnie Brown and Mary Lee Bragg. The musicians are Ben Glossop and Vincent Parizeau. Showtime is 8 pm. There is no intermission. Tickets are $10. Enter from MacKay St.
