(NORTH ADAMS, Mass.) – Spoken word artist Carl Hancock Rux returns to Club B-10 at MASS MoCA on Saturday, March 28, 2015, at 8pm, with his program, “Winter Song,” a unique blend of intimate songs and poetry set to live piano music that ranges from the blues to German lieder to Lili Boulanger. Rux will be accompanied on the piano by Lon Kaiser, a Brooklyn-based composer and pianist known for his genre-bending, improvisational style.

An American poet, novelist, singer-songwriter, essayist, and Bessie Award and OBIE Award-winning artist, Rux’s poetry deals with issues of race, religion, politics, sexuality, isolation, and personal relationships, while making use of satire, naturalism, and rhetoric to convey the observations embedded within his poetry. Rux delivers his poetry with an unparalleled lyrical intimacy: his voice, both literally and in terms of his writing, is undeniably his own.
