August 4, 2022 7:00 pm

Feature: Paul Loomis

Theme: Struck by the poetry-lightning-bolt

Event begins at 7 pm and ends at 8:30 pm

Who threw that first poetry-bolt your way?

Lightning never strikes the same place twice, so how did you get here? What was the shape of your bolt?

Paul Loomis ~ Paul is a folksinger-songwriter, math professor, distance runner, father of two, and spender-oftime-in-the-Andes who occasionally gets struck by the poetry-lightning-bolt. He is also – evidently – a frequent hyphenator. His fourth album of original folk songs about whatever came into his head that day as he was playing the guitar should be out by August. You can read more at paulloomis.com or find his music at itunes and all those places.
