May 23: Ryk McIntyre Features

Stone Soup Poetry meets from 8-10 p.m. every Monday at the Out of The Blue Art Gallery at 106 Prospect Street with an open mike sign-up at 7:30 p.m. On May 23rd, we welcome the return of local legend Ryk McIntyre.

Ryk McIntyre is a Multi-Hyphen. Poet,-critic-performer-workshop facilitator-co-host at both GotPoetry! Live (Providence) and Cantab Lounge (Cambridge,MA), as well as a carbon-based life form and known biped... triped... whatever. Ryk has performed his work at Boston's ICA, NYC's New School, Portsmouth, NH's Music Hall and Lollapalooza, to name just a few, and opened for such acts as Leon redbone, Jim Carroll, Andre Codrescu, Reggie Gibson, to name-drop but a few.. He has toured the US, performing in countless Poetry, Music and Academic venues, and wants to share that rehearsing his poems in a mumbly, soto voce usually gets him the entire seat on trains, planes and buses. He is pleased to share this information. He's also a really good Dad to 2 sons and a daughter. He's most proud of that.
