Jerry tuning the guitar

Monday, May 5th – 7-9 pm
Jerry Ferraz performs
The Golden Key
A troubadour’s fairy tale

Jerry_TeaGardenJerry Ferraz is known widely for his link to the bardic tradition, with his small guitar and wandering ways and his long poetic narratives in song that roll out without recourse to the page.  Unfettered to contemporary preoccupations, they can be at the same instant timely in the most uncanny of ways.  Certainly, The Golden Key is among his most fascinating tales, a thing to be marveled at, to be taken in and savored.  Live recording tonight!

A poets’ open mic follows, as it does every 1st & 3rd Monday at Bird & Beckett.

Next session, May 19th, Jerry’s good friend and mentor, the philosopher/psychologist Sterling Bunnell will deliver his long-form narrative, Chaucer’s Squire’s Tale Completed.  Read more on both Jerry and Sterling here.
