T.G. Vanini to Read at Poetry on the Loose

T.G. Vanini T. G. Vanini will perform his work at the next program in the Poetry on the Loose Reading/Performance Series. The event will be held at 7 West Street in Warwick at 4:00 p.m. on May 1st. Following the feature, others are welcome to read original work. Admission is free. Please enter through the side door on the right side of the building.

Vanini is an extraordinary poet and lyricist whose original words and music, influenced by classical and folk traditions, are featured on his two recordings with his trio, The Princes of Serendip: most recently What She Said, which came out on Jaiya Records in 2008. Vanini’s solo album growth & gravity was released by Rose Hill Records in 1996. (Vanini had previously played with an English folk-dance band named Black Pig, a French folk-rock outfit called Menerval, the strange and beautiful Breaking Ground, and the inimitable Fighting McKenzies.)

T. G. sometimes acts the part of Laurence Kirby, a Cambridge-educated mathematics professor who teaches at Baruch College. Some of the results of his reckless mixture of poetry and math may be seen at http://faculty.baruch.cuny.edu/vanini/.

The next reading on June 5 will feature Donna Spector.
