Music & Spoken Word
Night of Grief and Mystery
A storyteller. A singer. A band. An evening of mongrel sorrow. These Nights have the mark of our time upon them, and they’ve become timely, urgent, alert, and with some swagger. They are Nights devoted to the ragged mysteries of being human, and so grief and endings of all kinds appear. What would you call such a thing? We called it Nights of Grief & Mystery.
Stephen Jenkinson is a Harvard educated author and activist and founder of The Orphan Wisdom School. He is the author of Die Wise: A Manifesto for Sanity and Soul, the award-winning book about grief, and dying, and the great love of life. The songs of Gregory Hoskins tend to break and bind at the same time. He and his band underpin Jenkinson’s readings using swirls of drums, bass, guitar textures, and synth throbs along with vocal harmonies, trumpet, and live looping.
