The Earth Poets & Musicians’

 27th Annual Earth Month Performances on April 25th & 26th

Fri. April 25, 8 pm, at the Urban Ecology Center, 1500 E. Park Pl.
To celebrate their 27th year of performing together, five of The Earth Poets & Musicians, Jahmes Finlayson, Holly Haebig Wake, Jeff Poniewaz, Suzanne Rosenblatt and Harvey Taylor, have invited 15 other Milwaukee area performers to join them in “Twenty Performers in Two Hours for the Earth.” Suggested donation: $5 to benefit UEC and other eco groups.

Sat. April 26, 8 pm, at the Coffee House, 631 N. 19th St. (entrance on Wisconsin Ave.)
Five of The Earth Poets & Musicians, Jahmes Finlayson, Holly Haebig Wake, Jeff Poniewaz, Suzanne Rosenblatt, and Harvey Taylor, perform with special guest, Dasha Kelly. Donation: $5

Our incredible planet exists, with its ecological balance and sun-struck beauty. Yet infinitesimal specks on that planet, who call themselves humans, are able to change everything, to take away the balance, the beauty, the life. This conundrum haunts the Earth Poets and Musicians. They puzzle over Earth with love and awe, humor and horror, and wisps of wisdom.

24th ANNUAL EARTH POETS & MUSICIANS PERFORMANCES

April 16 and 22, 2011

Earth’s adrift between freezing up and melting down. Forest fires or floods, blizzards or droughts, tsunamis, quakes, hurricanes hit the news with increasing frequency. Yet there are those who say NO, there’s NO climate change. The Earth Poets & Musicians have been alerting their fellow Earthlings to the beauty of Nature and the urgency of the growing environmental crisis for nearly a quarter century.

The group’s founder Jeff Poniewaz and his fellow poets Louisa Loveridge Gallas, Suzanne Rosenblatt and Harvey Taylor have been performing together in praise and defense of the natural world since 1988. At first they called themselves The Earth Poets. During the past decade, two singer-musicians—Jahmes Finlayson and Holly Haebig—joined them and one of the original members branched out into songwriting, so the group is now called the Earth Poets & Musicians.

PRESS RELEASE:

Our planet’s climate has gone roller-coaster see-saw wild! We’ve had the warmest, driest winter, while others roll in snow or freeze. Melt burn quake, we never know the headlines ahead of time, at least there’s no tsunami in Miami. Since 1988 the Earth Poets & Musicians have used wisdom, vision, irony, rhythm, music, and even humor to remind audiences that Earth’s a wondrous place, and we want to keep it that way. On April 14th at the Urban Ecology Center and on April 21st at the Coffee House, they will remind us once again, for the 25th consecutive year!

Of the original line-up of ten Milwaukee poets, four continue to get together each April for the annual Earth Poetry celebration. Poniewaz, author of Dolphin Leaping in the Milky Way, teaches “Literature of Ecological Vision” at the Urban Ecology Center via UWM’s off-campus program. Longshoreman Harvey Taylor has published a chapbook of his poems at the end of each year and in recent years has issued several CDs of his songs and poems. Suzanne Rosenblatt is a visual artist besides being a chanter of her unique incantations. Louisa Loveridge-Gallas, who has performed with singer Claudia Schmidt, published an outstanding collection of her work titled Revelations on Longing Street in 1998. Among Milwaukee’s best poets, these four are also dynamic performers of their poems. Other members of the original line-up were Angela Peckenpaugh, Ann Filemyr, Sue Silvermarie, Cristina Herrera and Craig Kowalkowski (now known as Craig Stone). Jahmes Finlayson, Holly Haebig, Suzanne Rosenblatt, and Harvey Taylor, plus KT Rusch, are featured in the 20th Annual concert dvd: contact any of them, if interested, and/or insert their names in the www.youtube.com search engine to access their performances. The dvd is also available at the Village Bazaar (Farwell, south of North Ave), & Woodland Pattern (Locust & Fratney).

Each year a guest poet is invited to perform with the group. Guest poets have been Rick Ollman, Daniel Grego, Peggy Hong, Mathibela Sebathoma, Eric Hansen, and KT Rusch. Claudia Schmidt performed with the group one year. In recent years, musician/singers Jahmes Finlayson and Holly Haebig have joined the group, adding the magic of music to the magic of words.

Earth Poets group photo taken in advance of the very first Earth Poets performance. This was the original group selected by the event’s organizer, Jeff Poniewaz. The photo was taken in the red oak grove on the wild side of Riverside Park just west of the bike trail in April 1988. Left to right, standing in front of the tree: Jeff Poniewaz, Suzanne Rosenblatt, Angela Peckenpaugh. In the tree: Rick Ollman, Ann Megisikwe Filemyr, Craig Kowalkowski, Cristina Herrera, Louisa Loveridge-Gallas, Sue Silvermarie, Harvey Taylor. Antler performed with the group for its first few years, but was doing readings on the East Coast when this photo was taken.

Earth Poets group photo taken in advance of the very first Earth Poets performance. This was the original group selected by the event’s organizer, Jeff Poniewaz. The photo was taken in the red oak grove on the wild side of Riverside Park just west of the bike trail in April 1988. Left to right, standing in front of the tree: Jeff Poniewaz, Suzanne Rosenblatt, Angela Peckenpaugh. In the tree: Rick Ollman, Ann Megisikwe Filemyr, Craig Kowalkowski, Cristina Herrera, Louisa Loveridge-Gallas, Sue Silvermarie, Harvey Taylor. Antler performed with the group for its first few years, but was doing readings on the East Coast when this photo was taken.

Poniewaz, author of Dolphin Leaping in the Milky Way, teaches “Literature of Ecological Vision” at the Urban Ecology Center via UWM’s off-campus program. Longshoreman Harvey Taylor has published a chapbook of his poems at the end of each year and in recent years has issued several CDs of his songs and poems. Suzanne Rosenblatt is a visual artist besides being a chanter of her unique incantations. Louisa Loveridge-Gallas, who has performed with singer Claudia Schmidt, published an outstanding collection of her work titled Revelations on Longing Street in 1998. Among Milwaukee’s best poets, these four are also dynamic performers of their poems. Other members of the original line-up were Angela Peckenpaugh, Ann Filemyr, Sue Silvermarie, Cristina Herrera and Craig Kowalkowski (now known as Craig Stone). Jahmes Finlayson, Holly Haebig, Suzanne Rosenblatt, and Harvey Taylor, plus KT Rusch, are featured in the 20th Anniversary concert dvd: contact any of them, if interested, and/or insert their names in the www.youtube.com search engine to access their performances.

Milwaukee poet and eco-activist Jeff Poniewaz organized Milwaukee’s first annual Earth Day Poetry Celebration in April 1988 out of concern that not much was being done to observe Earth Day then. He had lived in the San Francisco area from mid-1978 to early 1983, enjoying the community of poets like himself among whom nature and the environment figured prominently. Since his return to his native Milwaukee, Poniewaz was happy to see that several emerging Milwaukee poets were eloquently articulating environmental concerns as part of their output. He thought: “How exciting if these poets, with their wonderfully various styles of writing and performance presentation, could be brought together in a kaleidoscopic way, with each having ten minutes to sound out their most powerful work in that vein.” Antler was part of this “Earth Poets” group for its first six years but now during April is busy performing at Earth Day events around the country.

Of the original line-up of ten poets, four continue to get together each April for the annual Earth Poetry celebration. Poniewaz, author of Dolphin Leaping in the Milky Way, teaches “Literature of Ecological Vision” at Woodland Pattern via UWM’s off-campus program. Longshoreman and arts teacher, Harvey Taylor has published a chapbook of his poems at the end of each year and in recent years has issued six CDs of his songs and poems. Suzanne Rosenblatt is a visual artist besides being a chanter of her unique incantations. Louisa Loveridge-Gallas published an outstanding collection of her work titled Revelations on Longing Street in 1998. Among Milwaukee’s finest poets, these four are also dynamic performers of their poems. Members of the orginal line-up were Angela Peckenpaugh, Ann Filemyr, Sue Silvermarie, Craig Kowalkowski and Cristina Herrera.

Poet and eco-activist Jeff Poniewaz organized Milwaukee’s first annual Earth Day Poetry Celebration in April 1988 out of concern that, after eight years of the anti-environmental Reagan presidency, not much was being done to observe Earth Day in Milwaukee. He had lived in the San Francisco area from mid-1978 to early 1983, enjoying the camaraderie of poets like himself among whom nature and the environment figured prominently. A meeting place of those eco ardent poets was a storefront in the Mission District over the door to which was a sign that said “Cloud House” and “Walt Whitman Breathes Here.” Cloud House’s custodian was a dynamic street poet who went by the name of Kush.

After he returned to his native Milwaukee, Poniewaz was happy to see that a number of emerging Milwaukee poets were eloquently articulating environmental concerns as part of their poetic output. He thought: “How exciting if these poets, with their wonderfully various styles of writing and performance presentation, could be brought together in a kaleidoscopic way, with each having ten minutes to sound out their most powerful work in that vein.” He personally selected and invited each of the participating poets. The result was the first Earth Poets & Musicians Performance—or Earth Day Poetry Celebration as it was called when it was entirely spoken word and hadn’t yet acquired its music dimension.

Antler was part of this Earth Poets group for its first six years but now during April is busy performing at Earth Day events around the country. Kush, on a visit from San Francisco, opened the very first Earth Poets event with two of his street chants. Jeff was proud of this eco bunch of Milwaukee poets and glad Kush could witness how well they compared to their counterparts in San Francisco.

Of the original line-up of ten Milwaukee poets, four continue to get together each April for the annual Earth Poetry celebration. Poniewaz, author of Dolphin Leaping in the Milky Way, teaches “Literature of Ecological Vision” at the Urban Ecology Center via UWM’s off-campus program. Longshoreman Harvey Taylor has published a chapbook of his poems at the end of each year and in recent years has issued several CDs of his songs and poems. Suzanne Rosenblatt is a visual artist besides being a chanter of her unique incantations. Louisa Loveridge-Gallas, who has performed with singer Claudia Schmidt, published an outstanding collection of her work titled Revelations on Longing Street in 1998. Among Milwaukee’s best poets, these four are also dynamic performers of their poems. Other members of the original line-up were Angela Peckenpaugh, Ann Filemyr, Sue Silvermarie, Cristina Herrera and Craig Kowalkowski (now known as Craig Stone).
