#PunkRockFarmerFriday digs into Community Supported Agriculture with Stagl Organics and Fungal Focus on Al's #UrbanFarmReport. Plus, music from the Delbert Anderson Trio, which will be at the Orem Library for Earth Day, #PoetryStillHappens with Cindy King, SkyWatcher Leo T, and fiber artist Jeanne Akita.
Music from the Delbert Anderson Trio, well known in the Four Corner's area as being one of the tightest, fiery, funky and most exciting instrumental groups to hit the Southwest Scene. The band was formed by award-winning jazz trumpeter Delbert Anderson and features Nicholas Lucero on Drums and Mike McCluhan on bass.
Many cultures, one sky with SkyWatcher Leo T, featuring a Pink Super Moon, Dark Skies Month, spotting Jupiter and Saturn, and the Greek interpretation of the constellation Draco, the Dragon!
Felt fiber artist Jeanne Akita, whose work will be featured April 24-May in Smithsonian Craft Optimism, a celebration of creative ideas for responding to climate change. The sponsors are the Smithsonian Women’s Committee and Honoring the Future.
SLTribune: SLC artist’s ‘wearable fiber art’ is the opposite of destructive ‘fast fashion’. Look for Akita's creations at the Park City Kimball Arts Festival (Aug. 6-8) and the Utah Arts Festival (Aug. 27-29).
Illusions Lab, Akita's studio in Sugar House, is open to the public by appointment. Read SLTribune story here.
April is National Poetry Month. In our ongoing series #PoetryStillHappens with Trish Hopkinson of Rock Canyon Poets, we featured "Mama Garde Manger" by Utah Poet Cindy King. Look for her book Zoonotic from Tinderbox Editions later this year. More of King and her poetry also may be found on Mapping Literary Utah.
