BILL CAMPLIN & MICHAEL HECHT

March 12 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10

Please call 920-563-9391 to reserve seats.**

From the mouth of Bill before the last time he did such a show with Michael:

“This Thursday, May 20th I will be sharing an evening of excerpts form the writing of poets, playwrights, authors and historical figures with Michael Hecht.  These will include Helen Keller, Arthur Miller, Eric Maria Ramarque, Lucy Atkins, Yusef Kamuryakaa, Jimmy Santiago Baca, Dalton Trumbo, Martin Luther King Richard Harrison, Paul Laurence Dunbar and Langston Hughes.

This will be at least the 7th time we have worked together with me supplying songs spaced between the writing he has organized and reads from.  I have never had a better collaboration in which to place songs, which in this case are all my own writings.  It is not to presume that I am equating my own lyrics with any of these writers, but allows me to visit the type of writing that has inspired and informed me through out my 74 years ( minus the first 7 or so).  Most of Mr. Hecht’s choices were specifically unknown to me so I am in the audience too.  As I listen I find a comfortability in performing that I have seldom had.  It feels so right.”

This night Michael will be doing readings from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mary Oliver. Bill has not revealed his sources.

**ATTENTION: re the coronavirus situation. The small space of the listening room prevents any reasonable distancing. For the safety of everyone, and to protect the performers who cannot mask while performing, we will be requiring:

  • proof of vaccination
  • mask wearing in the listening room, (and recommending it in all of our spaces when not eating or drinking.)

Keep checking for updates, as circumstances could require further measures, or even cancellation.
