Benefit and Performance for Victims of Sandy
“Overhead, the two moons worked together to bathe the world in a strange light.” Haruki Murakami, 1Q84
Only the Blog at Two Moon presents Writers Who Sing, Singers Who Write with Mila Drumke and Peter Silsbee. Don’t miss this benefit and performance for Sandy recovery efforts on Wednesday, November 14, at 7PM. Funds will be donated to OSH PSP Brooklyn Neighbors Hurricane Relief.
Writers Who Sing, Singers Who Write celebrates the double-threat talents of artists who cross mediums to tell their stories. In this inspiring musical and literary evening, songwriters/writers Mila Drumke and Peter Silsbee will share how their music influences their non-fiction and fiction and vice versa.
Mila Drumke is currently writing a memoir called All the Time in the World
about caring for her sister, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor at age 27. The project has received generous support from the NEA/Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, the Millay Colony for the Arts and Hedgebrook. She has also recorded numerous albums, including Radiate, which was named “one of the top 10 album discoveries of 2006″ by WFUV. “Radiate is not just an artistic triumph-it’s easily Mila Drumke’s best work to date and one of the most impressive records of the year by anyone-but a personal one, too. In taking unimaginable sadness and turning it into something both grounded and visionary, she has created a deeply humane song cycle.” writes Neil Parkinson inHearsay magazine.
