"Feels like home to me."
WE'RE GOING TO WOODFORD!
THE ROWETH BAND
It's official folks! The six piece Roweth Band is on it's way to the big gig in Queensland this summer! The festival programme is being launched today and it's bigger than ever! The band is hot to trot with it's unique combo of string band and blues sounds, and a sweeping repertoire ranging from roaring poetry and soaring songs to infectious dance tunes (cause Woodford can take it!).
Jason and Megan Roweth will be up to their necks in the Poets Breakfasts , co-ordinating, hosting and performing. The poetry scene at Woodford was a hive of creative activity last year as writers were inspired by the performances of powerful reciters, went to their workshops, scribbled furiously in the evenings and then brought their brand new poetry to the breakfasts to perform in their turn. Featured poets this year include Angela Peita, David Hallett, Laurie McDonald, Robyn Sykes, Peter Swain, Megan Roweth and Jason Roweth. Chloe & Jason, assisted by the Roweth Band, will be hosting a workshop on 'Accompanying Poetry' which will hopefully open the door for poets and instrumentalists to combine their arts in new and interesting ways.
