Owen Sound’s Poet Laureate Legacy Performance

As Owen Sound Poets Laureate Rob Rolfe and Larry Jensen approach the end of their two-year tenure,
they are polishing their final performance which will take place at Heartwood Hall in Owen Sound on
September 14. The centrepiece of the show will be Métissage: From Nawash to Mudtown, a thrilling
combination of poetry, spoken word, indigenous hand drumming and music, written and performed by
the Métissage Collective which, along with the laureates, includes poet Richard-Yves Sitoski, heritage
enthusiast and singer Mary Little and First Nations historian and drummer Susan Schank. As a special
bonus this production will also feature guest appearances by popular local musicians Will Henry and
Frank Francalanza.

Tickets are also available in advance at the Owen Sound North Grey Union Public Library for $13
