Rockpile with David Meltzer & Michael Rothenberg

Rockpile with David Meltzer & Michael Rothenberg

ROCKPILE is a collaboration between David Meltzer—legendary poet, musician, and essayist—and Michael Rothenberg, poet, songwriter, and editor of Big Bridge Press. In the tradition of the troubadour and with the spirit of collaboration, the duo will journey through eight U.S. cities and perform poetry, composed on the road, with local musicians in each city. The ROCKPILE journey begins here with world-class musicians: Theo Saunders (piano), Johnny Lee Schell (guitar), John B. Williams (bass), Joe Sublette (saxophone), and Debra Dobkin (drums and percussion) for a fusion of jazz, blues, and roots rock.
