Internationally acclaimed poet Tony Barnstone will perform his moving and historically accurate WWII-era poem-stories, accompanied by musical duo Genuine Brandish. The performance is based on Barnstone’s award-winning poetry collection, Tongue of War; which he began writing after a conversation with the pilot of the Enola Gay, Brigadier General Paul Tibbets. Tony then worked with musicians Arianna Hall and John Clinebell to transform the stories into haunting alt-country-folk rock songs.
