Cello like you’ve never heard before!
From China to Iceland, and all over the U.S., Dirty Cello brings the world a high energy and unique spin on blues and bluegrass. Led by vivacious cross-over cellist, Rebecca Roudman, Dirty Cello is cello like you’ve never heard before. From down home blues with a wailing cello to virtuosic stompin’ bluegrass, Dirty Cello is a band that gets your heart thumping and your toes tapping!
"Dirty Cello’s music is all over the map: funky, carnival, romantic, sexy, tangled, electric, fiercely rhythmic, and textured, and only occasionally classical." Oakland Magazine

The Connecticut Poetry Society will be presenting their series of workshops, "Poets on Poetry", with a Connecticut poet leading a close reading of a chosen poet. Tonight the featured poet is Gwendolyn Brooks, and the workshop leader is poet Christine Beck. Cheryl Hale, the new Poet Laureate of Middletown, will also be present.
Gwendolyn Brooks is one of the most highly regarded, influential, and widely read poets of 20th-century American poetry. She was a much-honored poet, even in her lifetime, with the distinction of being the first Black author to win the Pulitzer Prize. She also was poetry consultant to the Library of Congress—the first Black woman to hold that position—and poet laureate of the State of Illinois.
