Performance bios for our readers:
 
LINDO YES! is a spoken word artist, actor, and emcee born and raised in Philadelphia. He takes the beat of the city streets and turns it from bipolar sunrise to starry throne, paying heed to the wordsmiths that surround and inspire him and assuming their characters to champion their unique stories to be told. Drawing lines out of conversation and gesturing to the hypothetical constructs of love in ideals, gender identity, and social injustice, Lindo leads a chorus of humbleness in front of his audience taking them beyond their own ordinary experiences. In his own words, he “makes everything living, his canvas” and creates worlds out of those words he spits. When not actively performing, Lindo is busy hosting poetry events around the city including larger gatherings like the annual Germantown Poetry Festival. He also contributes designs to Plain Sight Buttons, a Philly company, in attempt to spread the spoken word even further.

CATHERINE RUSH
Catherine Rush is a writer, organizer, and performer currently based in Atlanta, Georgia. Her writing develops from themes of madness, alienation, trauma, identity, and community, lovingly pursuing positive alternatives with/in and against the atmosphere of destructive machinery. Building from breath, music, and conversation, her work contemplates the disjoint between narratives handed down and lived experience, seeking to tease out and examine her own habits and hypocrisies while recording, recreating, and refracting the people and powers around her.
 
CYNTHIA JONES
Cynthia Jones is a Philadelphia-based spoken word artist and slam poetry competitor. When she’s not doing poetry, she works in urban education. Keep your eye out for her upcoming chapbook, “The World Sucks But Some Things Don’t”.

CASHMERE HARPER
Cashmere Harper is an Author, Poet, and the Founder of Hope After 20 Publications. A Philadelphia, PA. native, taking on a new journey into entrepreneurship and publishing, Cashmere has dedicated herself to adding much needed diverse literature to your book shelves, and providing safe space for others.
 
MARSHALL JAMES KAVANAUGH
Marshall James Kavanaugh is a dream laborer of words and various art forms used to create poetic dream spaces for his readership to explore. Originally from Philadelphia, he’ll be touring his new collection of poetry, Travel By Haiku that he wrote while driving around the country over the last 2 years. Each haiku serves as a meditation to get readers back in touch with their earthly roots on this planet and bring the audience along on the road with him across the country taking brief pauses to admire the air, the sunsets, the beaten earth, the tall trees on high mountains, and the breath of the ocean surf.

Join The Joe Hillman Band and Nina de Vitry for a wonderful night of acoustic music. Both of these acts have roots in the old-time / bluegrass music traditions, but in many ways have moved past these genres to create something more unique and, at the same time, more accessible. Come on out for a cup of tea, a dose of music, and let’s have a good time.
 
MORE INFO:
 
Joe Hillman is defined by his powerful vocals, unique mandolin style, and welcoming stage presence. His love of music is an inspiration to all those who have the pleasure of working with him. He is joined on stage by Jordan Rast on the dreadnought guitar and Dan Turkos on the upright bass.
 
Nina de Vitry is an emerging songwriter & musician currently studying at Temple University. She creates unique fusion of folk, jazz, and R&B, leaning on influences such as Norah Jones, Bonnie Raitt, and Amy Winehouse for inspiration.
