In celebration of the second year anniversary of poetry open mic events, at the Indian Trail Cultural Arts Center, poets, artists and musicians shared an array of poetry compositions, stories, art and musical talents throughout the night. Since the inaugural open mic event, An Evening of Conversations in Poetry two years ago, the poetry group has showcased an explosion of talent through various poetry and art sectors, contests, workshops and open mics. Participants included voices from the local arts and humanities community.
This Poetry Open Mic 2-Year Anniversary included recitals and performances from Norman Bartee (The Theater of My Life), Dwight Roth (Chasing Truth), Catherine Ross (Feedback), Pam DeMaria (My Magic Place), Ryan Fish (The Rooster on guitar), Casey Zvanut (And the Rest Is), Roger Fish (History of Cotton in IT), Davis Taylor (The Marine), Jennifer Nicks (Lovely on guitar), Odette Tejada (Flying Back), Andrea Haynes (Little Thoughts and Time), along with poetry, art and a skit performed by Isabella Fish, Lilli Fish, Elise Meehl (Paris) and Leila Meehl (Millie).
Indian Trail Community Development Specialist, Susan Didier and North Carolina Poet, Kym Gordon Moore collaborated together and coordinated an evening of fun for all. The monthly poetry and art platform showcases many veteran, novice and first-time appearances. By expanding monthly poetry open mic events to include other artistic performances, individuals are challenged each month with a new theme prompt to help ignite their creative juices.
Part of the night’s refreshment bar was courtesy of Mr. Steven Chip Long, Notary Public and CNSA, of Indian Trail. Be sure to join us next month for another evening of poetic excitement.
