what we do here

these wandering feet

Our most recent Artists In Residence have created a beautiful album of poetry and music.

Joel and Heidi McKerrow lived and worked with village artists and residents for 6 weeks. During their stay they recorded a CD, and a book, of the poems which will be published by The Poatina Tree and available for purchase and download from Aug 22nd.

The music was penned by local composer Spike Mason and was played by an ensemble including clarinet, viola and guitar.
