Los Lorcas: Poetry in Concert

Celebrating their new release Last Night in America, poets Partridge Boswell and Peter Money, along with guitarist Nat Williams, fuse poetry and music in a passionate and surprising mash-up. Los Lorcas blur boundaries between spoken word and song, weaving poetry with Andalusian ballads, blues, rock, folk, reggae, hip hop, Americana and jazz in pursuit of the cante jondo (deep song) Federico Garcia Lorca so ardently championed.

Recipient of the 2022 Fish Flash Fiction and Saguaro Poetry Prizes, Partridge Boswell is a troubadour and author of the Grolier Award-winning collection Some Far Country. His poems and stories have recently found homes in Poetry, American Poetry Review, Poetry Ireland Review, Prairie Schooner, Solstice and The Moth. Co-founder of Bookstock Literary Festival, he leads community-based workshops at Vallum Society for Education in Arts & Letters in Montreal and serves as an advisory trustee of the Grolier Poetry Foundation.

Peter Money’s books of poetry include hybrid works such as the prose-poem sequence with Saadi Youssef, To day – minutes only; the poetry/music collaboration Blue Square; Che: A Novella In Three Parts; and a book of translations, with Sinan Antoon, of the Arab Modernist Saadi Youssef. His most recent collection is American Drone: New and Select Poems. Money’s debut novel Oh When the Saints—a coming of age story set in Ireland—has garnered critical acclaim on both sides of the pond.
