POSTPONED: 2020 Nights of Grief & Mystery – Rough Gods World Tour ~ Demmitt, AB
May 9, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Concerts for Turbulent Times they surely are. We aren’t poets, maybe, but the evenings are poetic. They are musical and grave and raucous and stilling, which probably means they are theatrical. They are nights in which love letters to life are written and read aloud. There’s some boldness in them. They have that tone. These nights have the mark of our time upon them, and they’re timely, urgent, alert, steeped in mortal mystery. They’re quixotic. They have swagger. What would you call such a thing?
This Night has been POSTPONED. We are working closely with the venues and the local organizers to reschedule and announce the new dates as soon as possible. It’s very likely most Nights can be moved to the Fall North American tour in September and October. Please stay tuned for more information. We hope we see you at one of the rescheduled shows. Click here to read updates from Stephen Jenkinson about the virus and the tour. A new double record will be ready sometime in May, maybe early June. There’ll be some live pieces there, recorded on the North American tour late last year, and some new studio things.
Author/Activist Stephen Jenkinson and recording artist Gregory Hoskins fuse their separate work into an evening that is part book reading, part concert, part poetry, part lamentation, part ribaldry, part lifting the mortal veil and learning the mysteries there. That’s what’s been performed to sold out houses in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, England, Scotland, Wales, Iceland and the USA.
Five years after its’ inception, Nights of Grief & Mystery: Rough Gods World Tour 2020 travels the dark road through 70 cities on four continents over six months.
Friends are forged on the dark road heading out of town.And so we head there again, sojourning across the world in the name of psychic sanity and spiritual resolve in these most troubled and troubling of times.
That dark road thing?
That is more than an image. That is what we do. That is our devotional act.
