LO Reads 2014: Paula Sinclair Sings Stafford Poems
Tuesday, February 4, 7:00 pm at Lake Oswego Public Library. Singer/composer Paula Sinclair was inspired to set her most beloved poems to original music starting in 2006, interpreting the poems’ feel and imagery through vocals and acoustic guitar. In 2007 Sinclair recorded the album The Good Horse, which focuses on Oregon poets, including William Stafford, Dorianne Laux, Joseph Millar, Jarold Ramsey and Debbie West. In 2008 Paula worked with Allan Halbert, conductor and music director of Tigard-based orchestra Starlight Symphony, to produce a symphony-backed concert of her Stafford poems. Jean-Pierre Garau will be on the keyboard.
