For all the poet lovers out there, here's one not to miss:
Redwood Reider is a spoken word poet known for inspiring and uplifting live audiences. Performances range from intimate storytelling and mystical explorations to charged up eco-political rhyme (and often all at the same time). Redwood's rhymes grow out of a deep connection to earth, a love of community, a passion for justice, and deep commitment to the healing of our outer and inner worlds. Words flow from the heart with humour and compassion – aiming to reconnect us all with our true nature (and to inspire a few revolutions). Redwood frequently collaborates with live musicians, on stage and in the recording studio. Live performances may journey through the full range of moods, from guided meditation through freestyle rap and dance grooves. Redwood has cocreated three albums of poetry alongside acoustic musicians.
