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?

We called it Nights of Grief & Mystery.

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.
