Poetry and music night


This music video is called Barbara Breedijk – Charming Farmer –Zing Zong Festival.

Tonight, poetry and music at the theatre.

First, poetry by Jacob Aachenende, an admirer of Lord Byron and Slauerhoff. I still knew him from when he read his poems in Amsterdam; “the first time ever”, he said. The subjects of his poems of tonight included death; prostitution; and the chess player Jan Hein Donner.

Then, acoustic guitar music and singing by Eelco Romijn. A Nick Drake fan, the subjects of his songs included his son.

After a pause, yours truly, with a column about fish.

Then, poetry by Gerrit Vennema; whose poems included one about Paris cemetery Père Lachaise.

Finally, acoustic guitar music and singing by Barbara Breedijk. Her first song (also in the video in this blog post) was about a woman falling in love with a farmer and then getting disappointed.
