The Munising Public Library performance of B.G. Bradley and Under This Cold Sky (Steve Hooper) has been rescheduled, due to unforeseen circumstances, for October 11th at 6:30 p.m. Bradley will be reading from his new Hunter Lake Book, Summer Rounds, while Hooper as Under This Cold Sky will be performing his U.P. folk music.
“Writer B. G. Bradley and musician Steven Hooper know how to make everyone feel like Yoopers. Listening to Bradley spin his stories and poems is like sitting around a campfire with an old friend. When Hooper picks up his guitar and starts singing, you can hear fish jumping in silver water, deer leaping over fallen logs. Together, they conjure up the Spirit of the North, including the voice of the late writer John Voelker’s meditation on trout fishing. An evening with these two artists is truly a love letter to the Upper Peninsula,” said U.P. Poet Laureate, Marty Achatz.
“It is always a pleasure to enter B.G. Bradley’s literary world. It is peopled with unique and interesting characters facing pivotal moments in their lives. And if I can’t, on the spur of the moment, head across Big Mac and soak up the UP’s ambiance, limitless beauty, and enjoy its laid-back lifestyle, I can pick up one of the author’s books and let him take me there,” says Tom Powers of Michigan in Books.
The rescheduled joint performance in Munising on October 11th will be preceded by Bradley’s solo performance at Peter White Public Library on September 20th at 7:00 p.m., followed by encore joint performances at Uptown Gifts in Ishpeming on November 24th from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on the hour, and at Ishpeming’s Joy Center at 1492 Southwood Drive on November 28th at 7:00 p.m. Hooper will also be performing solo at Peter White November 8th at 7:00 p.m.
