Just Buffalo Literary Center presents:

MICHAEL MELDRUM & FRIENDS: POETRY BY TYNESHA AVIS (A.K.A. "LOVELY") & SAM FLOYD, FIDDLE & VOCALS BY JENNIFER CHANG

Interdisciplinary Performance Series - Open-Ended Question: Music Poetry Politics

Series curated by Joyce Carolyn

Join singer/songwriter, Buffalo music impresario, and Righteous Babe Records recording artist Michael Meldrum for an evening of music, poetry, and politics. Meldrum will be joined by spoken-word artists Tynesha Davis, AKA "Lovely" and Sam Floyd. The show will be followed by an open mic.

Michael Meldrum has been performing and teaching throughout the eastern U.S. for more than thirty years. His impact on Ani DiFranco and other artists has been profound. DiFranco has written: "In addition to teaching me the joys of singing songs, Michael also provided a model for me of a self-motivated artist who actually makes their living in the arts. As an aspiring artist myself, this was an invaluable example and I garnered a lot of practical experience attending and participating in his gigs with him." Meldrum was inducted into the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame in 2006.

Sam Floyd is a contemporary Buffalo poet. First published in Blinking Eights magazine, he has also published a chapbook of his poems, entitled The Quiet Space.
