Poetica Petit featuring Peter Ramm and Maia Marsh. Come along for a night of words and song.
Please come along and enjoy a night of poetry and song. I'll be reading alongside the amazing Maia Marsh. Can't wait to see you there.
Poetica in partnership with Woollahra Council launches a new poetry night Poetica Petit to be held in the newly refurbished Woollahra Gallery at Redleaf at the Cultural Hub. The Hub opens out into the picturesque harbourside Blackburn Gardens, historically the venue for the Council’s annual Poets Picnic. This brand new night of words and music will be a more intimate affair for attendees.
Poetica Petit is gonna be sweet next week with @peterramm_writing and @mer.mmmm taking the spotlight. With all that mmmm going on how can it not be? Plus the grand old open mic and wine, kombucha and cheese! Bookings essential.
Peter Ramm is a poet and teacher who writes on the Gundungarra lands of the NSW Southern Highlands. His debut poetry collection Waterlines is out now with @vagabond.press . In 2022 he won the prestigious Manchester Poetry Prize. His poems have also won the Harri Jones Memorial Award, The South Coast Writers Centre Poetry Award, The Red Room Poetry Object, and have been shortlisted in the Bridport, ACU, Blake, Newcastle, Tom Collins, and KSP National Poetry Prizes. He has been published in Westerly, Cordite, Plumwood Mountain, The Rialto, Eureka Street, and more.
It's been a busy few years for multi-instrumentalist & singer-songwriter Maia Marsh. As well as fronting indie-rock trio Motion Sickness and being a founding member of dream-pop heart-throbs Goodside, Maia has also loaned her musicality to artists such as Georgia Mulligan, Ainsley Farrell, Georgia Fair, Huck Hastings & Gloomie.
Having two heartbreakingly gorgeous released singles already up her sleeve, Maia Marsh delivers Big Deal - a fierce, powerful yet hypnotic alternative-folk track, with soaring vocals and Radiohead-esque woven guitar lines. Maia states that "the track is about self-empowerment, the realising of self worth and personal growth" which can be felt in it's entirety within the song's minimalistic bare-bone quality".
Known as somewhat of a troubadour in the Sydney live music scene, Maia's work is laced with anticipation and eagerness from fans and peers, and is one to watch closely as they begin to take flight.
